A 'Dark Mild' Takes Top Home Brew Honors

A Dark Mild brewed by Jesse Walters of Cheektowaga, NY took top honors in the 2022 Home Brew Competition. A panel of judges and master judges evaluated the submissions according to nationally recognized Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) protocols.

Jesse has been brewing since 2014 and this winning entry was one of three he entered. He describes this style as “light in body and light in abv,” and went with this style as dark styles are getting more attention.

He is working with the brewers at Hamburg Brewing Company to professionally brew his recipe to be available at the beer gardens during the Erie County Fair.
