Homebrew competition

Radius Indiana invites local homebrewers to put their skills to the test in its first-ever regional Home Brewing Competition Saturday, March 18, in Jasper.

As the regional economic development organization for the region, Radius works to create opportunities for entrepreneurs to further develop their products and ideas. The new homebrew competition is the latest initiative for residents to showcase their talents.

The competition is open to any homebrewer who has perfected the art of brew-making, or perhaps a beer lover that wants to try for the first time. Competitors must be a resident of one of the eight Radius Indiana counties: Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, or Washington.

Competitors will be judged by a panel based on their specific brew category and cash prizes are guaranteed to raise a few cheers from the lucky winners. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third in each category.

Categories include:
Light - Pilsners, light ales and lagers
Amber - Oktoberfests, nut browns and Irish reds
Hoppy - Beer that showcases a strong hop profile
Wheat - Beer that contains wheat or rye
Dark - Stouts and porters
There is a $5 entry fee per brew that must be paid at the time of submission. Submissions can be made beginning March 1, at any of the dedicated dropoff locations below:
