Bragging Rights Homebrew Competition

Think you make the best home-brewed beer? Prove it during the Bragging Rights Homebrew Competition in partnership with Cleveland’s Platform Beer Co.  We’re looking for the best “Cleveland Beer” in town and the winner will get their beer canned and sold at Heinen’s stores this fall.

Ready to get brewing? Whip up a Cleveland-esque beer of any style, and prepare to be judged on criteria including creativity, technical brewing, appearance, aroma, flavor and overall impression.


Entries must be submitted to Platform Beer Co. (4125 Lorain Ave. Cleveland, OH) or The Cleveland Brew Shop (4142 Lorain Ave. Cleveland OH, 44113). Entries will not be accepted at Heinen’s stores. Limit two entries per person. Competitors must provide three 12 oz. amber bottles, clearly labeled with BJCP labels. Please reserve up to 20 additional samples for the event at Heinen’s, should you win.


Any Cleveland-area home brewers 21 of age or older.


Entries must be dropped off no later than September 3, 2019. The final round of judging will take place at Heinen’s (exact location TBD.)


No cost to enter!


A 30 barrel batch of the winning beer will be brewed and sold at Heinen’s locations. And, of course, bragging rights.
