Get ready for the 5th Annual Binny's Homebrew Contest sponsored by Samuel Adams. This year the contest will be held in the brand new Champaign Binny's on Saturday, April 21st from 11:00am-1:00pm. There is no charge to enter the contest. There will also be a beer tasting during the event featuring many delicious beers from the Boston Brewery.

Our 1st place finisher will win a trip for two to the Great American Beer Fest that includes tickets, airfare, and hotel. Several runners up will win valuable prizes. There will be also a worthy prize for best label, though labels aren't required. All participating homebrewers will receive beer evaluation sheets with judges comments.

The Rules

- Each household may only enter one beer

- Entrants must drop off two 12oz bottles or one 22oz bottle of their beer at Binny’s in Champaign on Thursday 4/19 or Friday 4/20, along with your entry form rubber banded around your beer. Click here for an entry form.

- Entries will be limited to the first 50 beers submitted. We expect the spots to fill up very fast, probably by mid day Thursday.

- You must be present at the store no later than 12:00pm on Saturday, April 21 to claim your prize and tasting evaluation sheet from the judges.

I love all of the people from Chicago complaining about how Binny's is punishing them by holding the contest in Champaign. I feel pretty well cared for as a customer at this point! :)
