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!
India Pale Ale – It’s the beer that put American craft brewing on the map. West Coast, Imperial, New England, Black, White and Rye – the variations on this popular style are nearly endless. Juicy IPAs are currently all the rage, so we’ve selected a few of our favorites to hoist in celebration.
UPDATE (8/1/17): The following homebrewers have advanced to the final round:
-Aaron Liga/Alan Diebel
-Joe & Tom Fuentes
If you did not advance, but would like your score sheet, they will be available for pick up at the final event, or email Hilary@binnys.com.
We have hosted the Binny’s Homebrew Contest for ten years… can you believe it? We have another great contest lined up this year. Once again, we’re excited to host guest judge Jim Koch. Best known as Samuel Adams Founder, Jim Koch will pick the winner this year, and award the coveted first prize: a trip for two to the 2017 Great American Beer Festival in Denver.
