10th Annual Binny’s Homebrew Contest Winners Recognized


This year, we accepted 40+ entries and the top 10 were judged by beer legend and Boston Beer co-founder, Jim Koch. We were blown away by the incredible homebrew entries and had a blast drinking some delicious Sam Adams beers with Jim Koch. Congratulations to all of the homebrewers who placed or took the time to handcraft and homebrew their entries for the 10th Annual Binny’s Homebrew Contest sponsored by Samuel Adams. Winners and photos below. See you next year!
