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.
