Each month at our membership meeting the Forest City Brewers host a homebrew contest, with a different featured style chosen for each month. The contest is judged during a blind sampling taste test by those in attendance, and points and prizes are awarded to the winners. The monthly points are compiled and used to determine the ultra  prestigious Forest City Brewer’s “Homebrewer of the Year Award”.

If you have never brewed any of these styles please check out our RECIPES page for recipes provided by club members.
