Arbor Wine & Beer Supplies Homebrewing Contest at Fatty McGee’s – 12/7/2013



This past December we were honored to be the judges for the first annual Arbor Wine & Beer Making Supplies Homebrewing Contest held at Fatty McGee’s in East Isilp, NY. The event had a great turn out and there were some truly excellent beers entered into the competition. Family and friends came down to support the brewers and in a variation on the usual beer competition theme each brewer brought growlers of their brew to share with the attendees prior to judging wrapping up. While we were a bit nervous in the weeks leading up to the event once everything got rolling and we saw people enjoying themselves it was clear that we had been part of something unique. keep reading...

First Annual Home Brew Contest at Fatty McGee’s Sponsored by Arbor Wine & Beer Making Supplies Judged by Beer Loves Company



Saturday December 7th 2013 at 7:30 pm the first annual Home Brew Contest will be held at Fatty McGee’s in East Islip, New York. The event was organized and is sponsored by Arbor Wine and Beer Making Supplies and they have asked us to be the judges. We are looking forward to meeting all of the brewers who are competing and of course trying their liquid labors of love. Two prizes are up for grabs: Most True to Style and Most Unique. Drink specials will be going on throughout the night and if we had to guess from the poster (which we do because we have no idea what the specials will be) they might have something to do with Blue Point Brewing Company beer. A homebrewing competition and specials on Blue Point beer, pretty cool eh? keep reading...

17th Annual B.E.E.R. Brewer’s Cup Winner: Bobby “Po’ Boy” Rodriguez!!!



Every year the Brewer’s East End Revival Homebrew club hosts an annual Brew-Off. This club is based out of Long Island (NY) and has held the competition in Saint James, NY the past few years. It is an event which draws in 300 or so entries each year and also brings together tons of beer fans from around the country. Entries have come in from all over the country and the homebrewing community is well represented at this event.

A highlight of this annual gathering of brewing fans and skilled artisans is the awarding of the Brewer’s Cup. The winner of the cup has the honor of having their winning homebrew recipe brewed and distributed by a local brewery. In past years breweries have included John Harvard’s and the ever growing Long Island craft brewing pioneers Blue Point Brewing Company. It has been a great thrill for the members of the club to compete for the cup and for the winners to see their beer produced and sold to the thirsty public. keep reading...
