This homebrew festival has a great, new concept... all the brewers bring at least 1 corny keg of beer, and everyone gets to drink it. Every brewer providing a keg for everyone to sample gets 1 free entry into the festival to eat and drink all you want. In addition, each brewer will get the chance to win the $500 "Peoples Choice" award or one of our many other great prizes. The "Peoples Choice" award will be given to the beer that gets the highest number of votes from Sisters Homebrew Festival attendees. Brewers who want to win are encouraged to bring more than one corny keg since people cannot vote for a beer that ran out before they got to try it.
1st place peoples choice - $500
