Home Brew

Here is your chance to get brewed....

The first step in the process to determine which homebrew will be named the 2020 Erie County Fair Best In Show Beer has been scheduled. Homebrewers from across New York State may submit their brews in the Erie County Fair’s Homebrew Competition. The annual summer release of the limited run, craft beer based on the winning brew has become an anticipated tradition at the Erie County Fair for beer lovers.

Homebrew hobbyists have until Friday, April 3rd to submit their beers for judging. In addition to the opportunity to win a gold medal for excellence, the Erie County Fair Homebrew Competition’s top entry will be professionally brewed and named the 2020 “Erie County Fair Best In Show Beer.”

The drop-off and judging has been postponed until further notice. The deadline to make your online entries has been extended!
