Homemade Beer and Wine Competition

Homemade Beer and Wine Competition

If you like to make your own wine or beer, consider entering them in the fair to see how they stack up against others! This contest is open to all homemade producers of wine and/or beer. Entrants will be able to watch the judging process, hear comments from the judges, and then sample the exhibitor’s wine and beer with some cheese and crackers after the judging process is complete and the awards handed out. This should prove to be a fun afternoon for exhibitors, judges, and audience as well. So, come, participate if you like to make your own wine or beer, or just be part of our audience to enjoy the afternoon.

Now is the time to judge your homemade wine and beer against others.
This competition will be held during the last day of the 2021 South Dakota State Fair, Monday, September 6, 2021, at 1 PM-3 PM in the Women’s Building Kitchen.
