Think your homebrew is worthy of widespread consumption?
It could be named this year's Erie County Fair Craft Beer, and the contest starts soon.
Homebrewers from around the state have until April 7 to submit their beers for judging. The winning brewer will be asked to turn over the recipe to the professional brewmaster of Flying Bison, who will ensure it is commercially and legally producible. An attempt will be made to brew the winning beer with all New York State sourced products. Once it is kegged, Try-It Distributing will distribute it at select Western New York outlets before the fair, and several locations will sell it at the fair.
Rules and guidelines can be found on the Erie County Fair website.
The entry fee is $20, and up to five entries in categories including lagers, pilsners and a variety of ales can be submitted from April 3-7. Judging will take place April 22 at the Ag-Grange building by at least two certified master judges.
