2023 Club Barrel Brew Championship

Fortune and Glory Awaits!

On Saturday May 20th, Keystone Homebrew will play host to the 2023 edition of the Club Barrel Brew Championship. As with previous years, each participating homebrew club will be given the free use of a freshly dumped barrel. Each year, ten to twelve homebrew clubs fire up their brew systems and craft a cornucopia of clever concoctions to be aged in 15 gallon Dad’s Hat Rye Whiskey barrels. The event is FREE for all regional homebrew clubs (subject to validation). Read on for details, and please fill out the signup form at the bottom of this page. You can find even more details on our page of frequently asked questions.

The EVENT Details:

Beers must be brewed at Keystone Homebrew Supply on Saturday, May 20th. Clubs may start arriving as early as 8am. Each club determines their own recipe and aging schedule, brews their own beer on their own systems, and makes their own barrel additions (if any).

The Fortune and Glory Details:

A select group of unaffiliated and entirely incorruptible celebrity judges will judge the barrel brews on Saturday, April 6, 2024 (subject to possible change). The winning club, as determined by the celebrity panel, will receive up to $500 in Keystone Gift Certificates!
