Homebrewing dates to remember

– New Mexico’s Enchanted Brewing Challenge May 19-20 features a special competition for “radical beers.”Judges will also have the opportunity to evaluate beers in the Radical Beer Open.

– Saturday, May 6 is National Homebrew Day and once again an excuse for homebrewers around the country gather for Big Brew.

– The Milwaukee Monster Mash includes competition in only six BJCP categories, but that way all six winners may have their beer brewed at Wisconsin breweries. The May 7 competition is held in conjunction with World of Beer 2006.
