Brewer of the Year Competition

The Brewer of the Year Competition is an internal competition for members of IE Brewers. The competition starts January 1st and continues through the Christmas party in December. Points can be accumulated by entering and also winning judged competitions (must claim IE Brewers as their club in the competition registration), sharing style of the month beers at monthly meetings, or by helping with club-related business. Volunteering as representatives of the club by judging or stewarding will also earn points.

Additional opportunities for points may be available in the future and will be described as they arise.

The homebrewer who accumulates the most points over the year will be crowned as the Homebrewer of the Year and will receive a $100 gift certificate to MoreBeer and free membership to the club for 2020 (along with your spouse).

To submit points from a competition, please submit your request for points through the form site found here:

Additional opportunities for points will be available in the future and will be described and added as they arise.
