The 17th Annual War of the Worts was the largest in the history of the contest, with 96 judges and 22 stewards handling a whopping 880 entries from 269 different brewers. In fact, that makes it the largest ever homebrew competition on the East Coast not sponsored by Sam Adams. More importantly, though, it was an incredibly fun and successful event! We want to send out a huge thanks to all of the competition sponsors, and to all of the organizers, stewards and judges who worked hard to pull this event together. We also want to congratulate all of the winners, especially the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place Best of Show winners Ed Walkowski (Apple-Cranberry Cider), Drew Williams (Munich Dunkel) and Jeff Stein (Winter Warmer). You can see the complete competition results by following the link on the sponsor page. Finally, we would like to thank Iron Hill for donating lunch and a spectacular Belgian Tripel, and the following breweries for supplying delicious craft brews: The Farmers Cabinet, Forest & Main Brewing, Free Will Brewing, Naked Brewing, Prism Brewing and Round Guys Brewing for donating. The free seminar (courtesy of Roger Barth, phD) and the mini beer festival made the wait for the awards ceremony was one of best parts of the event!
