**For the 2023
Erie County Fair Homebrew Competition, we have decided to spice things up.
While we all love classic styles, we know the fair is about having some fun.
This year the judging for the competition will be based on creativity and not
necessarily by style. All BJCP styles can be entered and will be judged, but
the “Best of Show” beer main criteria will be “creative relevancy” or the most
fun beer to enjoy while being at the fair. The winning beer for this contest
will be commercially brewed and available at the fair AND will be canned for
the masses. More to come!
Online Entry Registration Starts: Wednesday, March 1st
Entry Deadline: Friday, April 28th
