Hop to It: Registration Now Open for People Working Cooperatively and Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom’s Annual Homebrew Competition

People Working Cooperatively’s (PWC) Emerging Leaders Board and the Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom are partnering for a beer-y good time for the third annual Boards and Brews Homebrew Competition. This yearly contest brings together beer makers and beer lovers to support PWC’s mission to serve low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.

Those interested in brewing up a cold one can register for the competition now through April 5. Registration is $150 per beer entry and includes a $50 stipend for brewing ingredients. Teams are allowed to submit multiple entries but must pay the registration fee for each. Brewers will have through June 2 to brew their beer and submit it for judging. Learn more and register at

“We’re extremely grateful to be partnering again with Sam Adams for the Boards and Brews Homebrew Competition, which has become an annual tradition that allows us to connect and engage directly with the community while building a more diverse base of supporters,” said Jock Pitts, PWC President. “This event not only helps to financially support PWC, but also gives people a chance to learn about the impact we make in our neighborhoods so they can become more involved.”

Final judging by the Cincinnati Malt Infusers will decide who has the ‘lager’ than life brew. The winning team will be unveiled during the Boards & Brews Cornhole Tournament on June 23 at the Sam Adams Cincinnati Taproom. The winning team receives a $250 cash prize and will help brew their recipe with Sam Adams Cincinnati Taproom Head Brewer, Chris Siegman, on-site at the Cincinnati Taproom, with the opportunity to tap with their friends and family at a taproom event in August.

“We look forward to this annual competition and partnership with PWC each year,” said Keith McEly, General Manager of Sam Adams Cincinnati Taproom. “We are excited to once again celebrate the rich brewing history of Cincinnati and continue to raise awareness and support for the local community.”

Proceeds benefit PWC, allowing the organization to provide critical home repairs and mobility modifications for neighbors in need. Boards & Brews is possible thanks to the support and generosity of several sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom.
