Got a homebrew you’ve been perfecting for years? Now’s your chance to show it off and sample best homemade beer, wine, and soda in the region. Last year, more than 200 people entered their homebrews in Southern Oregon and Northern California’s largest Amateur Beer, Wine, Soda and Label Art competition.
No small-time event, this nationally-sanctioned competition with professionally trained judges expects to have more than 250 carefully crafted wines, beers, and sodas entered.
How to Enter
Entries for Homemade Wine, Beer, Soda and Label Art will be accepted at Grains Beans & Things (820 Crater Lake Avenue, Medford), beginning August 13th through the entry deadline of September 5th. The competition includes 23 open classes for Amateur Beer, 12 classes for wines (including fruit wines ciders, and meads), and categories for soda, root beer, and ginger ales, and label art categories for all.
Each category will be professionally judged with winners announced at the Harvest Festival.
How to Enjoy
Interested in talking to people about their homebrews or learning how to do it yourself? Whether you’re into root beer, merlot, or double IPAs, stop by the Harvest Festival’s homebrew competition for a taste of how it all works.
The Homebrew Competion gets underway on Friday, September 20th and runs for three days alongside the Southern Oregon Brewfest – one of Oregon’s biggest and best commercial beer gardens.
