Best of Show
The Brewers Of South Suburbia is pleased to announce that we have many Gold Medal Breweries participating in the 2021 Charlie Orr Memorial Chicago Cup Challenge.  The brewers at these fine establishments will each select a gold medal winning beer from our 2021 competition to scale up and brew at their brewery (with the home brewer’s help whenever possible).

Thus, some very lucky gold medal winning home brewers will get to brew their beer at one of the following commercial breweries

– Evil Horse Brewing Company
– Hailstorm Brewing Company

This is a huge honor and a lot of fun to do as a home brewer!
