Welcome to the unofficial site of the Indiana State Fair's Brewers' Cup Comptetion
Congratulations to Scott Whitaker of Indianapolis' Foam Blowers of Indiana (FBI) brew club. Scott's "Divine Madness Old Ale" won Best of Show honors. For brewing the Best of Show Beer, Scott will receive a trophy and a $50 gift certificate from Ace Liquors, a $50 check from the Foam Blowers of Indiana Brew Club, a Best of Show ribbon and a plaque from the Indiana State Fair. Best of all, Scott is invited to be the Guest Brewer at Rock Bottom Brewery at 10 West Washington Street in downtown Indianapolis. Scott and Rock Bottom's head brewer, Clay Robinson, will brew Scott's Best of Show Divine Madness Old Ale recipe together. Divine Madness will be on tap at Rock Bottom sometime later this year.
Winners in the homebrew division will receive a first place blue, second place red or third place white ribbon from the Indiana State Fair and the following prizes:
Best of show: Guest Brew at Rock Bottom Brewery, Indianapolis
Joe Miller of Indianapolis is now a two time winner of the Brew Crew Award for the best beer label! Joe had the best beer label this year and last. Perhaps he'll go for a three-peat? Joe put a lot of time and effort into his labels and it shows. Joe's creativity also helped him to win a first place with his Norwegian Wood Ale, brewed with spruce tips from the Norwegian Pine in his yard.
Even if you didn't win a prize this year, please thank our sponsors for their generous donations. Most of all, please drop Phil Leisure at the Indiana State Fair an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to thank him for the fair's very generous support of the Brewers Cup. This competition could not happen without their facilities, financial, administrative and catering support. Let them know you appreciate all they do to make the Brewers Cup happen!
