2008 MICHIGAN STATE FAIR Home Brew Competition The Michigan State Fair Home Brewing Competition has become one of the largest and fastest growing competitions anywhere. From 324 entries in fifteen beer-only categories in 2004, the Michigan State Fair Home Brewing Competition has grown to 720 entries in all 28 beer, cider and mead categories in 2007, making it one of the largest competitions anywhere and definitely the largest single state competition anywhere. The size and growth of this competition is an indication of the vitality and strength of the home brewing and craft brewing community here in Michigan. This competition is an enormous undertaking and would be impossible without the support of our sponsors, judges, stewards, and volunteers, whose enthusiasm and hard work are responsible for its success.
