Battle of Fredericksburg Homebrew Competition

The Battle of Fredericksburg Homebrew Competition will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at Spencer Devon Brewing in downtown Fredericksburg, VA.

They are looking for judges and stewards.

This AHA registered competition is open to all 2008 BJCP beer styles.  Entries may be registered from Wednesday, February 17 through Friday March 18.  $7 per entry.

Registration for judges and stewards is online at and will close on Saturday March 26.

TurkeyShoot Stewards Needed

TurkeyShoot is in need of a few more stewards. Stewarding is an easy and fun job. All you have to do is bring beers out to the judges and take the score sheets when they are done. The judges will usually let you taste the beers too. A nice lunch will also be provided. You can register as a steward online at

Changes to Competition Calendar

Please check out the changes to the 2015 Competition Calendar. We’re tweaking things a bit so that the styles in our competition include all the styles that people like to brew. Trevor did some data analysis on the non-theme beers brought to meetings to determine if any styles were frequently brewed but not part of our competition. Turns out, there were!
