  • Brewing! This year there will be two brewing competitions at Egil’s with a combined overall champion chosen from the competitors of both. In both completions, competitors may enter any safely consumable beverage in which yeast is used to provide fermentation but lacks distillation (Eg. Beers, wines, and meads are OK, but cordials, infusions, and whisky are not). A competitor may enter the same brew in both competitions. There will be a Battle of the Best Brews (whose brew tastes best?) and a Brewing Arts and Sciences Throw Down (This competition is for the hard core recreationist brewer) as well as an overall competition.
