“Iron Hill has always had strong connections to the homebrewer community. Kevin Finn and I started as homebrewers over 20 years ago and have been lucky enough to turn our passion into a thriving and growing business pairing craft beer with made from scratch menu items,” explains Mark Edelson, Director of Brewery Operations for Iron Hill. “While I may question the name of the competition, the respect I have for the creativity found within the homebrewer community continues to astound us as professional brewers.”
Homebrewers must sign-up online before December 20, 2019, and can find a detailed parameter of rules and regulations, available online. Brewers will need to submit four 12 oz. bottles for judging at assigned regional locations beginning on December 26, 2019, through January 8, 2020. Each homebrewer can submit up to three beer entries. Beers are going to be judged by a panel of Iron Hill regional brewers, Mark Edelson, and acclaimed craft beer industry guest judges. Regional judging is going to take place on January 11, 2020, wherein five finalists will be chosen from each of the five regions. A final round of judging is going to take place on January 18, 2020. Winning beers will be brewed inside of the first few weeks of February to go on tap in March 2020.
