2019 Ohio State Fair Homebrew Competition

Entry Deadline May 14, 2019
Entry Fee(s) Per Entry Fee - $6.00 If you have more than one entry in a given sub-category, only your highest scoring entry will be eligible for an award in that sub-category. There is a limit of 8 total entries per person.
The winner will be awarded Best of Show. Best of Show will receive a rosette and $100.00 in gift certificates ($50.00 each) from two of our sponsors. In addition, a piece of homebrewing equipment, valued at up to $200.00 will also be awarded.

We reserve the right to combine categories or sub-categories as necessary for the purposes of awarding prizes.

Categories will be combined into flights of at least five entries.

All entries will be judged against the guidelines for the sub-category originally entered.

First-, second- and third-place winners in each category (or group of categories) shall receive a medal and fourth-place winners a ribbon.

First-place winners in each category will also receive a $25.00 gift certificate from one of our competition sponsors and will compete in a Best-of-Show judging (except the mead and cider categories, which are not eligible for best-of-show).

At the discretion of competition organizers and/or judges, awards may not be given if the quality of an entry is not deemed deserving of an award. A list of our competition sponsors can be found at the end of this section.

There is no awards ceremony at the conclusion of the competition. Awards will be mailed the week after the competition.
