You may remember that waaaaay back in late August, we let you know that the next Meridian Pint Homebrewer Match Up would be held in late October.

Well, check your calendars.

It’s late October.

The next Match Up (this is number five, or V, if you’re playing at home) will be held on Tuesday, October 25 from 6-8pm. This is a pretty excellent opportunity, if you haven’t been, because you can sample a bunch of homebrewers’ offerings free of charge and help determine whose is the best!

Here’s a note to potential contestants from Meridian Pint:

For The Brewers:


In order to participate, entrants must be willing to bring one case of their brew (kegs welcome), and must be able to get to the Meridian Pint by 5 PM to set up for 6:00 PM opening.

The Meridian Pint will supply table space, name cards, glassware, and ice, but brewers will need to bring anything else that they require, including bins for icing. At no point will persons under the age of 21 be allowed into the event for legal reasons.

This competition will be judged by the public on a “best of show” basis, and the top three entrants for this competition will also receive $100, $50, and $25 gift certificates to the Meridian Pint, as well as the opportunity to compete in our end of the year champions competition. We’d like to thank all of the Home Brewers who have helped make this event so successful in the past, and we look forward to your continued support.

If you’d like to enter, please contact Sam at And don’t forget we always have free 22oz bottles for you to pick up at the Pint!

Enjoy the homebrew! Cheers!
