The 14th annual New England Homebrewer’s Jamboree is being held on Saturday, September 11th, 2010 at the Branch Brook Campground in Campton, NH. The gates will open at 10am. It’s a $10 donation for adults (which includes a separate ticket good for a day of door prizes) and kids are free for this celebration of handcrafted beverages. This event is open to the public. The Jamboree is being sponsored by the Winnipesaukee Area Brew Crew, the Concord Area Homebrewers & the Southern Maine Homebrewers. Organizers and sponsors also include Fermentation Station Homebrewing and Fine Cigars of Meredith NH & Shapleigh Hops Craft Brewing Supply, Shapleigh Maine.

There will be a food vendor on site for Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast. Overnight camping is available. Overnight with hookups are $30 per sleeping unit per night, and $25 per sleeping unit field camping. Please call the Fermentation Station at 603-279-4028 for more information and reservations.

Homebrewers may enter beverages for the people’s choice competition, for an entrée fee of $3 for each sample of 2 bottles. Judged categories will include several varieties of beer, wine, meads and ciders. Bring your judge’s cap! Participants of legal age may sign up to judge the morning of the Jamboree. ID’s will be checked. There will also be sampling from several area microbreweries and among attendees. Come check out several home brewers actually brewing their own beverages on site!
Any and all proceeds above costs will be donated to the Make A Wish Foundation of New Hampshire. We were able to donate almost $4000 in 2009, and are hoping for a larger donation this year. Please join us for a fun-filled day of fellowship and homebrewing!
