This year I entered my first beer competition – the London And South East Craft Brewing Competition 2015. I don’t think I’d have normally entered a beer if I wasn’t organising the Brighton Homebrew group, but as it was, I’m very glad I did.
The comp was held in early April. £10 to enter 1 entry and £4 every entry after that. For this you get a glass, to go up on the day, and a BJCP feedback sheet on your beer.
Considering the amount of beer you can sample – over 250 beers were available on the day – this represents excellent value. You get some feedback – which for me wasn’t so important – but interesting nonetheless. I’d highly recommend any homebrewer to go up for the day, even if you’re not sure about your beer!
