Brewmasters invited to state competition

The Colorado State Fair is seeking superior suds from across the state for the fair’s 2009 homebrew competition.

Officials want amateur and professional entries to compete in events at the fair, which runs from Aug. 29 to Sept. 7 at the Colorado State Fairgrounds in Pueblo.

The fair’s homebrew competition has grown to be one of the largest in the Mountain States, with more than 270 entries last year.

Medals will be awarded for the top three places in each category, as well as Best of Show.

Winners also will be honored at the Foamfest Beer Festival on Aug. 29, which features dozens of beers from the Centennial State’s finest craft breweries.

Submissions must be made by Aug. 15 and can be mailed to the Colorado State Fairgrounds or dropped off at designated sites in Fort Collins or Denver.
