2022 Mendo Homebrew Festival

Saturday, May 21 | 3pm – 6pm | Anderson Valley Brewing Company | Boonville, CA 95415

This year’s event will take place in the newly designed “beer park” at Anderson Valley Brewing Company.

The afternoon will feature brewers from around Northern California competing to become both the people’s choice and/or the brewer’s choice winner. (The event is also open to ciders and other fermented beverages.)

Proceeds from the event benefit the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council, which informs, empowers, and mobilizes county residents to survive and thrive in a wildfire-prone environment. There is also a concurrent (free!) Wildfire Safety Expo, with tons of information and service providers, kids activities, opportunities to meet and talk with local first responders, and tips and swag to stay fire safe. We can’t wait to see you there!

People’s Choice: All attendees get three bottle caps that they can use to vote for their favorite beer by dropping the caps into designated containers. Ribbons and awards will go to 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place vote earners.

Brewer’s Choice: A separate tasting and judging will be conducted by professional brewers, led by Fal Allen of Anderson Valley Brewing Company, to select a top quality beer to be brewed by AVBC! The winning brewer will get to assist on brew day, learn about scaling their recipe, and use a commercial brew system.
