HomeBrew Competition

In 2015 we launch the first Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Competition to recognize and celebrate the most talented home brewers in the Philadelphia region. Interested participants will submit an Oktoberfest, Autumn Seasonal Beer or American Pale Ale to be judged by a panel composed of three highly qualified Roxtoberfest Beer Judges. Following a series of hoppy and delicious tastings judges will select one winner from the home brew community. The highest scoring beer as appropriate to the style will be named the 2015 Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Champion. Home brew samples will be available to Roxtoberfest attendees at the event. Are you a local home brewer and interested in submitting a taste of your favorite batch? Find the registration information on how to get involved here Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Competition Form.

Background

The Roxtoberfest fall street festival concept was developed by the Roxborough Development Corporation and Advent. The event is unique in that it was initiated by a non-profit community development corporation, the Roxborough Development Corporation, and will be operated with the help of local community residents. This year we thank, and all those businesses that are helping to make Roxtoberfest what Roxborough deserves. The Roxtoberfest is a free family-friendly event.
