Calling all homebrewers! From an email from Meridian Pint beer director Sam Fitz:

Hello Homebrewers,
It’s that time again to start registering for the next installment of Meridian Pint’s Home Brewers Match Up. This will be the final match up before the champions’ round. February 7th is the date for VI. All of the info is in the events section of our Facebook page as well as pasted below. Thanks,

From 6-8 PM come to the Pint to try the best of local home brew. For no charge you can sample the suds of your neighbors and help determine whose brew is best!

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 Beer(at) And don’t forget we always have free empty 22oz bottles for you to pick up at the Pint!

So, who is entering, and with what beer? Leave it in the comments!
