Midwest Homebrewer of the Year
A leg of The Midwest Homebrewer of the Year (MWHBOTY). The Midwest Homebrewer of the Year competition selects the top homebrewer from the Midwest based upon points earned in participating competitions. The homebrewer with the highest Net Score at the end of year wins the title of "Midwest Homebrewer of the Year" and receives significant Prizes. Points are accumulated by winning 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in any of the homebrew competitions in the MWHBOTY Circuit. A brewer's accumulated points are multiplied by his winning percentage (his ratio of medals to entries) to calculate his Net score, upon which the competition's rankings are based.
To be eligible, a homebrewer must reside in one of the Midwest states listed on the site and must enter beer, mead, or cider in at least:
4 participating circuit competitions
10 unique BJCP categories
