TBW HomeBrew Competition Winners

First off, from everyone with the TBW team, we would like to thank you for entering this year’s Toronto Beer Week HomeBrew Contest and making it a huge success. We had 247 entries over 24 categories, and the quality was remarkable and a testament to the strength of our homebrewing scene. Unfortunately there could only be 24 winners. Those winning gold will advance through to the second round, which will occur at the Great Lakes Harvest Fest this coming weekend, and will be judged by brewers or representatives from five breweries. If you’ve made it through to the second round you have won something, and how you place in that round will determine what. We have also awarded silver and bronze awards to the 2nd and 3rd placing beers in each category. You may not have won a prize but you should be damn proud of doing well in a very hard fought contest! Feedback on individual entries will start filtering through after TBW is over. We’re slow typers, so please excuse us for the delay…
