Another successful Homebrew Contest has come to an end and we couldn’t be more impressed with all of the entries this year! Thank you to everyone who took the time to handcraft and homebrew their entries for the 6th Annual Binny’s Homebrew Contest sponsored by Samuel Adams.

 

This year, we saw a variety of entries from IIPA’s to stouts to saisons. We even had a Danish Pilsner entry! We’d also like to mention that we will be changing the Homebrew Contest next year to accommodate more entries. More details to come.

 

The top ten Homebrew Contest entries:

 

First Place: Tim Beale of Lagrange will be enjoying a trip to the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado in October thanks to his saison! The judges described this beer to be impeccably and stylistically near perfect to the type of saison he was going for. Congratulations, Tim!

Tagged:

It took just 19 minutes to fill the allotment of entries for the 6th Annual Binny’s Homebrew Contest. Excited and sleepy homebrewers lined up at the door this morning before the store opened. Rumor has it that the first guy in line got there at 5:30. We can’t confirm that. We weren’t there.

 

Anyway, good luck to everybody who made it, cheers to our judges, and we’ll see you all on Saturday afternoon to announce the winners!

Fuller’s Introducing Historical IPA to Binny’s

Tagged:

FullersIn a few weeks Binny’s will introduce several new offerings from Fuller’s Brewery of London, England including Honeydew & the return of 1845. But the one that caught our eye is Bengal Lancer, an India Pale Ale.  Bengal Lancer stood out because it isn’t just any old IPA – it is one of the first IPA’s ever made.

 

By now most people know the history of the IPA, how the beers were heavily hopped as a preservative measure to survive the journey from Britan to the Indian subcontinent. During the long & arduous journey the beer went around the Cape of Good Hope in Africa before landing in the hands of thirsty British soldiers.
