Maryland home brewers, there's a contest with you in mind.
DuClaw Brewing Company is looking for participants for their first home brewing contest. The winner's recipe will be brewed by the company.
The brewery will accept recipes from April 1 to April 8. All beer styles are welcomed except "wood-aged, lambics, sours and beers that utilize bacteria in the brewing process," according to the submission form.
The submission form can be found here.
On February 27, there will be another competition: the annual Federal Hill chili cook-off. BeerinBaltimore has the official announcement.
This year's contest will be held at Metropolitan at 6:30 p.m. If you're interested in participating, email firstname.lastname@example.org recipe information. Rule of thumb: minimum entry is six quarts or more.
