St. Thomas, Ontario – Railway City Brewing Co. is launching their 7th annual Home Brew Competition that encourages home brewers to submit their best brew!
The timing of the competition ties in with National Home Brew Day, held annually on the first Saturday of May. That event brings together thousands of home brewers from around the world, all brewing the same beers simultaneously. More than 5,000 home brewers from North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and Australia are expected to participate this year.
Home brewers have been instrumental in the development and appreciation of craft beer around the world. Many craft breweries have either been started by home brewers, or many have home brewers working in the brewing aspect of the business.
The winners will compete for cash prizes plus the bragging rights and opportunity to brew a full-size batch alongside Railway City Brewing’s brewer. The winner will also have their signature identified on the bottles of their brew, which will be featured as this year’s “Platform 18”, one of Railway City’s seasonal offerings to be released later in the year.
“Home brewers are always pushing the boundaries and are very creative with their brews,” states Paul Corriveau, VP of Sales & Marketing at Railway City Brewing. “Many brew award winning beer.”
Recognizing home brewers and providing them a platform to create something special, makes the creative process alive and well throughout the craft brewing industry.
“Railway City is proud to share the spotlight and provide a Platform for the home brewer!” says Corriveau. “Creating interesting and delicious beer is something we strive for and we know home brewers share this passion as well.”
This year’s Platform 18: Homebrew Competition begins now. Entries are required to be submitted by April 30th, 2018. Details can be found online.
