While the Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines Festival won’t be held until 2024, organizers have announced that the homebrew competition will occur.

Entries will be accepted from Nov. 5 to Dec. 4. The number of entries is capped at 300. The winner of the competition will have a commercial batch of their recipe brewed and poured at Dry Dock Brewing in Aurora.

However, in an email newsletter, co-founder Laura Lodge said the judging will happen on the Front Range instead of in Breckenridge. Judging will occur from Jan. 6-7.



The newsletter also announced that Craft Your Own Big Beers, the virtual version that had breweries host their own event last year, will not return in 2023.
