The Manhattan Homebrew Cup

Draught 55 is proud to announce we have teamed up with Yonkers Brewing Company for our 1st annual Homebrew Competition. The winner of The Manhattan Homebrew Cup will brew his or her winning beer recipe on the 7 Barrel Brewhouse in The Yonkers Brewery. Thats right. If your beer wins Best of Show at this years Manhattan Homebrew Cup you will have the opportunity to get your beer on tap exclusively at Draught 55 AND at Yonkers Brewery.

 

The Manhattan Homebrew Cup is sanctioned by the AHA / BJCP (American Homebrewers Association & Beer Judge Certification Program) and we will be awarding runners up and category winners with official medals and lots of other prizes from our various sponsors listed below.

 

DATE: Saturday September 16th
TIME: 9AM – 7PM
COST OF ENTRY: $10 (Limit of 250 Entries in this competition)
Payment can be made online, or in person.
Entry Deadline is Saturday September 9th
Two 12oz glass bottles per entry only will be accepted.
BJCP 2015 Style Guidelines will be used for Judging.
Winners will be announced following Judging at Draught55.

 

Please Note that Yonkers Brewing Company can brew ales or lagers. If you make a cider or a mead and win the competition, you will still get to brew at Yonkers Brewery but the recipe brewed may pass on to the 2nd place Best of Show entry. The winning homebrewer(s) will sit down with the Yonkers Brewmaster to upscale the recipe for a commercial brewhouse. This may alter the recipe slightly depending on what Brewery is capable of and on what ingredients are available at the time.
