Really enjoyed it last year and this year it looks to be better. I want to enter, but am moving to a new house in April and that is gonna disrupt a lot of my brewing. Hopefully I will be able to enter though.

Pretty much. They have tables set up for the homebrewers and attendees can walk around sample the beer with the small serving cups they are given. Last year each person had a marble that they would give to their favorite brewer for the People's Choice award.

I know this isnt the first year the Brew Riot has happened, but I have a question about this as a home brewer....

Is this allowable under Texas laws on homebrewing? What title are they using to bypass the homebrewing laws? Competitons are different than serving homebrew to the public in a public place...even as a sampling.

I am wanting to join this, because it sounds like fun...I just want to know how this protects us a homebrewer.

Has anyone entered Brew Riot just a single person? Most of the participants that are already signed up, seem to be homebrew clubs. If I do enter, I will only be able to enter one beer and only have 5-gallons because I am limited by cooled fermentation space. I kinda don't want to show up and then run out of beer well before everyone else does for the festival.

I'll be signing up solo. I will be entering a couple different brews though. I already have a couple started and may do another this weekend. Keg space is my limiting factor, every keg I enter means one less on tap!
