Wow - where do we begin?! This year, we accepted 45 entries and the top 12 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 First Place Winner Tommy Crawford for brewing a professional quality Black IPA that won him two tickets to the sold out Great American Beer Festival and to all of the homebrewers who placed or took the time to handcraft and homebrew their entries for the 9th Annual Binnys Homebrew Contest sponsored by Samuel Adams. Winners and photos below. See you next year!
