New Year, new brew, NEW COMP! The annual Hoptoberfest Competition (formerly The Summer Sizzler) is back! But now it’s being held in October. The Down East Alers will once again be hosting this event in the illustrious eastern part of North Carolina. Our competition is a AHA/BJCP sanctioned event and a part of the Southeastern Homebrewers Association 2022 Schedule. The event will follow the 2015 BJCP Guidelines. We look forward to bring this competition back and seeing everyone again!
