The Dead End Brewers Home brew Club is centered in the Midland/Bay City/Saginaw area of Michigan but has members throughout Michigan. The emphasis of the club is on networking, homebrewer camaraderie and education. We host monthly brewer socials, educational sessions, and occasional brewing meetings at local craft brewing establishments. We welcome and encourage brewers of all levels including those who just want to watch the brewing process before trying their first batch.

2017 Marks the 4th Annual Competition to be held. Styles are minimally limited: Just like past years, styles are minimally limited to no sours, no kits, no clones, and no regrets. New this year, no uniquely aged beers (i.e. no oak barrel beers or barleywines) to ensure a timely release of the big brew of the winning beer. Other than that, all styles are acceptable. Check out the BJCP style guides for help/hints.

Judging will take place in multiple rounds and the judges will decide by consensus on 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. The beers that proceed beyond the first round will be included in the Brewer’s Choice tasting on the day of the Awards Ceremony. Here, brewers will have an opportunity to sample the entrants and vote on their top choice.
