Homebrew Contest Coming to Binny’s in Willowbrook


On November tenth, Binnys in Willowbrook will be hosting a homebrew contest. There is no charge to enter the contest, and the top three contestants will take home valuable prizes.   Beer experts from Binnys and Sam Adams will be judging the event. If you wish to enter the contest, please bring two bottles of your beer to Binnys in Willowbrook on November tenth no later than 5:30 p.m. Judging will start at 6 p.m., with the winners announced no later than 8 p.m.


During the judging, we have put together some events to keep all you home brewers occupied. Thanks to Sam Adams, every participant of the homebrew contest will get to participate in a Sam Adams Utopia tasting. Also, we will be sampling Sam Adamss seasonal lineup as well as some of their other beers; this will be available to everybody. Be sure to come with some room in your stomach, as the event will be catered with local cuisine. We are also working on securing some live music.


The Prizes:

First Place: An all expense paid trip for two to the 2010 Great American Beer Festival

Second Place: $100 Binnys gift card

Third Place: $100 Binnys gift card

Best Label: $100 Binnys gift card


If you wish to register for the event, or have any specific questions, please email me at We are looking forward to sampling some great brews, and wish you all good luck!

  1. Since many homebrewed beers are unfiltered and the sediment has settled, is it possible to drop off entries prior to the competition?What, if any, information should be attached to the actual bottle entries ?Thanks!Ron

  2. You can drop off your bottles anytime before the competition if you wish. The Sam Adams tasting (everything besides the Utopia) is open to non home brewers. Please email me at if you have any other questions.
