SFBC War of 1812 Homebrew Competition

Thank you everyone who took part in this year's SFBC War of 1812 Homebrew Competition! A big THANK YOU! to all of the judges and stewards who volunteer their time in the name of beer, this wouldn't be possible without them. We were also fortunate to have the support of our competition partner, Wellington Brewery, and our prize sponsors, BSG Canada and Escarpment Yeast Laboratories. In the end, 95 beers from 55 brewers were judged and ranked. 

Winners were announced and prizes awarded at our collaborative tap takeover with Wellington Brewery at Jane Bond on Sunday, July 17th. Shout out to Jane Bond, who opened up specifically for us and to everyone who came out and drank the kegs dry!
Entrants who could not make it to the awards ceremony will be mailed their feedback forms and prizes (if applicable).
