Attention homebrewers! Omaha Beer Week is upon us, and Benson Brewery has a special one for the homebrew community. We're hosting a competition for the best homebrews in town, with the winner getting a chance to brew with us in-house this spring. We look forward to trying your beer!

The Details:

• Drop off your bottles anytime during open hours at Benson Brewery from February 12-25, 2018.

• Competition will be open to all BJCP Beer categories.

• One entry per brewer.

• Beers must have a BJCP label to be considered, and feel free to include any other details. http://www.bjcp.org/docs/SCP_BottleID.pdf

The Winning Brew:

Dependent on style, the winner will be offered the chance to scale up their recipe and come brew at Benson Brewery this spring. If the winning beer was brewed with any wild yeast or bacteria, the brewer will be offered the chance to collaborate on a different, clean recipe with our brewer and come brew on our system. The winner will also receive a 1/6th bbl keg of their beer once it's brewed on our system.

The Judges:

Judging of the beer categories will be conducted as per the BJCP guidelines.

Tasting your beer will be judges Cody Anderson, head brewer at Benson Brewery; Nate Belcher, former brewer; and a few special guests.
