Monthly Styles

Forest City Brewers host a homebrew contest at club monthly meetings, 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. Monthly points are compiled to determine the Forest City Brewer’s “Homebrewer of the Year” awards. Check out our RECIPES page for starting points.
