Bierwerks Hosts Homebrew Christmas Beer Competition

Bierwerks Brewery in Woodland Park is hosting Holiday Cheer Christmas Beer Homebrew Competition, which is sanctioned by the American Homebrewers Association. Entries will be accepted for one category only: 21.B, (Spice, Herb and Vegetable) Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer.

Deadline: Dec. 7 with brewer's party to follow on Dec. 11

This contest is open to all amateur brewers. Two (2) bottles of your beer must be submitted along with the completed entry form and a $5 entry fee.

Bottles must be standardized to the current AHA competition requirements: 10-14 ounce bottles with no paper or inked labels or distinguishing marks on the bottle identifying the brewer. Each two (2) bottle entry must have identical labels attached with rubber bands and each entry must be accompanied by a completed recipe form. Judging will be made in accordance with AHA and BJCP standards. Prizes will be awarded to the brewers of the top four beers. (Because it’s the holidays, and hey, we’re feeling generous.) You need not be present to win.

Submissions can be dropped off or mailed to the brewery between Dec. 2 and Dec. 7. Send entries to:
