7th Annual Home Brew Competition at LauderAle

Local home brewers will battle in a one-of-a-kind beer competition where the best brew wins. We will have an onsite food trucks, live music, games and more. We will have over 15 home brewers competing to make 2022 their best year ever.

We invite the local home-brewing community to be a part of our celebration by entering their best brews in the 7th Annual LauderAle Home Brew Competition. We are proud to have the beers judged by BJCP certified beer judges. The home brewer who takes first place will get to brew their recipe at our brewery, and we will also carry it on draft in the taproom at our 8th year anniversary festival.
