From festival representative Jason Gregory:
Home brewers come from all over the Midwest to compete in this annual competition which is organized by our local home brewing community, the Hannibal Area Homebrewers Association (HAHA). Two of our guest judges for the HAHA Home Brew Competition at Brew Skies Music Festival are female brewers coming from Bell's Brewery and Mark Twain Brewing Co. Sarah Huska (Bell's Brewery) and Cat Golden (Mark Twain Brewery) will be leading the team who will be judging 38 beer entries from 25 brewers who travel to Hannibal from all over the Midwest. The HAHA Homebrew Competition is the largest public homebrew tasting in Northeast Missouri and guests get to taste and vote for their favorite brew in the "People's Choice" category of this competition.
This exclusive tasting is from 12pm-2pm and tasting is included in your general admission to the festival.
