Deadline nears for State Fair’s Home Brew Competition


Promoters remind those interested in entering that Thursday is the last call for the New York State Fair’s annual Home Brew Competition.

Last year, 74 home brewers submitted 267 entries, which officials expect to be matched or exceeded. The competition is held across 28 categories encompassing various types of beers, ales, meads and ciders.

This year, the recipe that wins “Best in Show” will be brewed in F.X. Matt Brewing Co.’s new test lab in Utica. The resulting beer will be entered in the Great American Beer Festival’s competition in Denver.

Entries will be accepted until 4 p.m. Thursday. The competition will occur May 31 and June 1. To enter, visit the fair’s website at Rules and entry forms are available there and may be submitted online.
