Homebrew Roundup 2016

The Cowtown Yeast WRanglers are proud to present the 8th annual Homebrew Roundup!


We welcome entries of beer, mead and cider from home brewers across Canada. This year we’ll be judging entries based on the new 2015 BJCP style guidelines, which include some funky new styles. Last year we had nearly 500 entries from coast to coast! This is the first competition in the Brewer of the Year circuit 2016, so if you want to see how you stack up against the best home brewers in Canada, or if you’re just after constructive criticism on one of your beers, be sure to visit the 2016 competition page to read the rules, and register. 

We’re accepting registration & entries until February 17th 2016. 

Just remember this year the drop off / shipping location is at the Vineyard only. If you’re eligible to judge (BJCP accredited judges and professional brewers) or want to help out as a steward during the judging, please register via the competition page. This year the judging sessions will take place at the Wild Rose Production facility, no longer in the backroom of the WR tap house. Judging dates and times are posted on the competition page.

The event will culminate with the spectacular awards banquet which is being held at National on 8th Saturday February 27th 18:00.

Please contact with any questions.
