Sign up for our vans to the Brooklyn Brewery Homebrew Night!

The JCBC is getting a few vans to take our brewers, volunteers, and drinkers to the NYCHG’s 25th Anniversary Party at Brooklyn Brewery. If you’d like to hitch a ride with us, sign up for a ride here!

If you’re not brewing but want to attend the event, make sure to buy a ticket now, as they’re going to go fast. A bunch of local homebrew clubs and shops will be there, and it’s going to be a great time.

Buy tickets here.

There was a correction with the Judge’s Choice 1st place, it seems a couple of entry sheets were mixed up which led to some confusion. Apologies to all.

Thanks again to everyone that came out, total attendance including volunteers, judges, brewers and other festival people was about 500. Crazy!

A big thanks to all of our sponsors for the JC Homebrew Battle

Thanks to everyone that has donated gift cards for prizes, trophies, or time and resources, it’s really helping to make this year’s contest the best ever! Make sure to swing by some of these great local businesses.
