Mendocino County Homebrew Fest
It is with great excitement to announce that the Fourth (mostly) Annual Mendocino County Homebrew Festival will be taking place this fall!
This legendary and much-missed event is set for September 25th, 2021 in the newly designed “beer park” at Anderson Valley Brewing Company.
The afternoon will feature brewers from around Northern California competing to become both the people’s choice and/or the brewer’s choice winner. (The event is also open to ciders and other fermented beverages.) Local farm-to-table food will be available for purchase.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council, which informs, empowers, and mobilizes county residents to survive and thrive in a wildfire-prone environment. Attendees will have the chance to talk to and learn from local first responders, pick up some fire-safe swag, and connect with neighborhood Fire Safe Councils.
People’s Choice: All attendees get three bottle caps that they can use to vote for their favorite beer by dropping the caps into designated containers. Ribbons and awards will go to 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place vote earners.
Brewer’s Choice: A separate tasting and judging will be conducted by professional brewers, led by Fal Allen of Anderson Valley Brewing Company, to select a top-quality beer to be brewed by AVBC! Also, Assemblymember Jim Wood is going to serve as a judge on the Brewer’s Panel! The winning brewer will get to assist on brew day, learn about scaling their recipe and use a commercial brew system.
Tickets are available HERE.
