Annual Homebrew Contest Winners Recognized


Today Binnys in the South Loop held a homebrew competition. We had to limit the number of entries to 50 this time around for a number of reasons. The quality of the beers us judges tasted was well above what any of us predicted. We would like to congratulate the winners and thank each and every person that entered a beer into our competition.


First Place Rodney Kibzey, Black IPA (Pictured on Right)

Second Place Adam Halon, Imperial Stout (Also won best label)

Third Place Benjamin Saller, Saison

Fourth Place Tim Lovell, American Pale Ale

Fifth Place Adam Jaworski, Imperial Stout

Sixth Place Michael Palet, Imperial Stout

Seventh Place Craig Johnson, Double Stout

Eighth Place Mark LACroix Oaked Porter

Ninth Place Michael Dow, American Pale Ale

Tenth Place Matt North, Tripel


We would also like to thank Sam Adams for all their help, and for bringing a brewer all the way from Boston to pour for the beer and cheese pairing. We hope everyone had a wonderful time, and look forward to doing this again in the future.
