No state does homebrew like our state.
Here comes the 2016 Oregon State Fair Homebrew Beer Competition.
Sanctioned by the American Homebrewers Association and the Beer Judge Certification Program.
Anticipation is building for the 2016 edition of the Oregon State Fair Homebrew Beer competition. As one news source put it, nothing represents the evolution in state fair culture quite like a tasty bottle of homebrew beer.
Entries are expected to be due during the last week of July. Meaning now’s the time to plan your potentially ribbon-winning effort. Please check back here for more details as they become available.
