Peterborough Beer Festival Home-brewing Competition 2019
This year we'll be once again running the brewing competition for any amateur brewer to enter a beer in two categories. The winning brewer will be given the chance to brew their beer at a professional brewery in the Peterborough area and have their beer on the singles bar at this year's beer festival. The two categories are under 4% abv and 4.1% abv and over. There is no style category, the choice is yours. But do remember if your beer needs 6 months in a whisky barrel then maybe rethink your entry! Judging will take place at the start of June with brewing for the beer festival in July. Couple of points: There will be a maximum of ten beer entries in each category meaning only one entry per person overall. If all 20 slots are not filled then people will be allowed to enter more. Entry is on a first to email me basis. I'll reply to confirm your submission. I'll keep people in reserve if needed. Beers need to be with me by the 31st May and must be in 3x330ml bottles. Please do not attach labels, elastic bands are fine. So what you need to do: Email me with your name, contact number and which category you're entering Details of beer drop off/collection and how to label will be emailed to you nearer the time. Think that is all. Feel free to make others aware, especially people who are not on Facebook and shoot across any questions. Thanks, Mark
