HOMEBREW

This competition has been put together to promote the art, science, and joy of home brewing and enjoying beer.

We are staging this event to highlight the quality of our regionís beers and the publicís increasing interest in home brewing. The beers will be judged by a panel of distinguished home brewers on Saturday, September 23rd.

WINE MAKER

We are proud to announce the 12th Annual Rhymes & Vines Wine Maker Competition that focuses on your wines. This competition is important for a number of reasons:

- The best winemakers in the industry were once amateur winemakers.

- You think your wine is good, why not find out! Wines are judged in a blind tasting by professional winemakers and their notes and suggestions are forwarded just to you.

- This is a great opportunity to be involved with other winemakers and find out more about the industry.

This yearís competition should be more exciting than ever.  We are staging this event to highlight the quality of our regionís wines and the publicís increasing interest in them. The wines will be judged by a panel of distinguished winemakers on Saturday, September 23rd.
