Homebrew Club Celebration
Aka People’s Choice

Click here to submit entries for the People’s Choice!


In the past clubs would rent hotel rooms for their club homebrew, and transform them to the club’s chosen theme. We saw Tiki Bars, German Beer Gardens, Cowboy/Ranch (many versions), Saloons, Medieval thrones, the limit is the imagination of the club members. Eventually separate club “homebrew room crawl” rooms transitioned to a large event room with club displays around the perimeter. Showmanship is key! Clubs offer tastes of their members’ brews. Participants can vote for their selected “Peoples’ Choice” homebrew. BJCP Certified judges will get judging points for the Peoples’ Choice judging.

2018 People’s Choice

Saturday March 24 after the awards, we will showcase the Local and Regional Homebrew Clubs; homebrewers are encouraged to re-brew a winning beer from last year’s Bluebonnet or bring one that was entered this year, as we will have special recognition for past and current winners.
