Home brew contests are a great way to measure how close you are to nailing a particular style. You could make the best beer anyone has ever tried, but if it is entered as an American Pilsner and it doesn’t fit that description almost precisely, you wont score well. We keep that in mind when it comes to any competition. A bad score doesn’t mean its a bad beer. That being said, we have entered 4 different brews into this years Battle of the Brews at the Delaware State Fair.
We entered a Northern German Altbier, Classic American Pilsner, Bohemian Pilsner, and an American IPA. We are not expecting any miracles. Just a fun day of drinking with fellow brewers. If we walk away with a ribbon, we will be thrilled. Wish us luck. CHEERS!
