General Information

Judging – February 5, 2023

For our 10th annual Home Brew Challenge we are throwing things back to year 1, and asking home brewers to submit their best IPA! (BJCP 2021 categories 21A American IPA, 21B Specialty IPA, 21C Hazy IPA, 22A Double IPA and X2 IPA Argenta). As this category is wide open to all iterations of IPA, yeast can be anything the participant wishes to use.

Participants can submit ONE entry in any of the categories, and all entries will be judged against each other in one common pool to produce one winner, one 2nd place and a 3rd place. Jointly brewed entries are permitted with payment of only one entry fee, but if multiple members of a joint entry want a participant t-shirt and/or to participate in the gala, then each joint participant must pay an entry fee.

Get Brewing! Looking forward to seeing the home brew community again on this one!

Entry Fees

Per Entry Fee – $25.00

Prizes / Awards / Medals / Ribbons

The top 3 beers will be announced at the Gala.

Brewers placing 2nd and 3rd will win a swag/merch and beer box from Big Spruce, and the Best in Show winner will once again brew their beer on Big Spruce’s 7bbl pilot system for sale and distribution across NS.
