Siciliano's '13 Hombrew Competition: Judging Complete!

By Steve Siciliano

The 229 entries in the 2013 edition of the Siciliano’s Homebrew Competition were judged this past Sunday at the Community Cabin in beautiful downtown Rockford by BJCP certified judges, award-winning homebrewers and craft beer professionals. Nine of those entries were deemed worthy of being included in the judging for this year’s Best of Show.

The announcement of the Best of Show winner and the presentation of the prestigious Siciliano’s Cup will take place at the Tenth Annual Siciliano’s Homebrew Party on Saturday, May 11th at the enclosed pavilion at Johnson Park. Medals and/or feedback forms will also be available for pickup at that time. Those not attending the party may pick up medals and feedback forms at Siciliano’s Market beginning on Sunday, May 12th.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s judging. Special thanks to Siciliano’s staffer Greg Johnson for once again organizing and running this annual competition. Special thanks also to Prime Time Brewers member Mike Johnson for helping us to obtain the Rockford location.
