Competition Season...

Spring is almost upon us, so it's time for this years bout of homebrew competitions to start crawling out of the woodwork. Most competitions don't interest me, usually because you have to pay for the privilege of entering, there's a couple announced this year that might be worth a punt, just for laughs.

Firstly there's Brewdog's The Great North West Homebrew Off, a culmination of the efforts of various North West based homebrew clubs to create a bit of club rivalry. Thanks to the involvement of Brewdog there's now some professional brewer types on the judging panel, along with Jim of Beers Manchester. Judging will take place at Brewdog's Manchester bar on Saturday 13th of June.

Following on from the success of last years competition, BrewUK, Thornbridge and Waitrose are again hosting this years Great British Homebrew Challenge, which was won last year by Graham Nelson from our very own Macclesfield Homebrew Club with his superb Vienna IPA. Lots of glory to be had with this one.
