The St. Louis Microfest Homebrew Competition is the sponsored and conducted by the St. Louis Brews to benefit Lift For Life. It is a fully sanctioned AHA and BJCP event.  This year, the judging will be held on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, 2014.

Due to the overwhelming support of this competition, we will be instituting a cap of 300 entries this year, with a maximum number per brewer set at 8. Because of this, we encourage brewers to enter their beers early once registration begins.

The location of the judging sessions will be at the new Urban Chestnut facility, located at 4465 Manchester Rd., St. Louis, MO 63110.

Last year, we had over 300 entries, and we are capping it at that number this year. Winners will be announced on May 3 at the Microfest. Shortly thereafter, the results will be found here.

Individual score sheets will be scanned, and we expect to be able to email those to entrants within a few days of the announcement of the winners. Thanks for entering, and don't forget to also check out our HHHC competition in December.

The official rules are available now. Want to know where to send your entries, how much it costs and other important facts? The official rules. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
