Tuesday, October 6th – Local 484 Home Brew Competition, Raffle Drawnings, Golf 

A new event we have added to this convention will be a competition we are calling “The Local 484 Home Brew Challenge.” This event will be a competition of your own home brewed beer or cider. The cost of the event will be $15 for the competitors. Refreshments will be available during the event. This event will be held in the convention center (room TBD). The event starts at 5:30 pm. There will be a panel of our very own Brew Masters from Central Waters Brewing Co., Backcountry Brewing Co., District 1 Brewing Co., Point Brewery and O’so Brewing Co., and a “celebrity” judge(s). The winning “Home Brew” will take the Home Brew trophy home! But wait, there’s more…The winning brew will be brewed by Central Waters Brewing Company.

You will be invited to come to Central Waters Brew House and spend the day with the Brew Masters and staff, brewing your winning beer. Please bring your home brew recipe to the competition. Central Waters will have your brew on tap in their tap house. The winner will have to find an establishment in your community to purchase your winning brew to sell, and have the proceeds donated back to your Local’s charity.
