Upcoming Competitions

2023 - 16th New England Regional Homebrew Competition

October 2023

More information coming soon.


Stating in 2007, back before the craft beer revolution, before COVID, and nearly to the start of the Internet as we know it, the competition was born as a memorial fundraiser after the losing a member of the club to cancer. Since that first competition it has expanded in both size and charitable giving. The largest entry field to date has been 450 entries, that's a truck load of beer. The profits from the competition continue to be split between cancer research and regional food banks.
