The Spooky Brewing Competition

As the leaves fall each October, the Prairie Homebrewing Companions gather together the best homebrew from the best homebrewers to determine who is the 'Great Pumpkin' of brewers.  Hoppy Halloween 2010 was featured on BrewingTV.

The Hoppy Halloween Challenge is known for its Medals hung from unique hand-crafted Halloween themed lanyards.

All BJCP categories including mead and cider can be entered, but the Hoppy Halloween Challenge has TWO categories unique to this competition:

Halloween Theme Beer:

"Any beer with characteristics that would identify it as being made for, and in the spirit of, Halloween."  

Fresh Killed Hops Beer:

"A wet hop beer made with fresh undried hops that displays the character of those hops in the flavor and aroma."

 

How spooky can you brew?  
Full rules for the special categories are available HERE.
