The Heart of the Valley Homebrewers

2009 HOTV Homebrew Festival

The 27th annual Oregon Homebrew Festival was held on May 16 at Calapooia Brewing in Albany. There was a great turnout, with over 300 entries of beer, cider, and mead. New judge training was held on Friday night, with new judges paired up with BJCP certified judges. The festival on Saturday consisted of many rounds of judging, including a final Best of Show round, a swap meet, and a raffle with many wonderful prizes donated by breweries and other beer-related businesses. A full list of winners can be found here. Thanks to Corvallis Brewing Supply which donated toward the Best of Show prizes.
