The Central Florida Home Brewers are proud to present the 23rd Annual Sunshine Challenge Beer Competition and Festival. The Sunshine Challenge is a 2-day event combining a wide variety of activities in the Central Florida Home Brewers club homebrew competition.
The Sunshine Challenge appeals to both the home brewer and the craft beer enthusiast. Feature Sunshine events include a Friday Night Beer Festival, an adventurous Saturday Afternoon Pub Crawl and Saturday Night Awards Dinner.
SC2013 will kick off with the commencement of judging at 9am on Friday, November 1st and end with the awards ceremony the evening of Saturday, November 17th. There is a lot more that will be happening at the hotel. After the judging on Friday, the Sunshine Challenge celebrates beer tasting with an amazing Beer Festival.

The fun continues on Saturday! Full expo pass attendees are welcome to a special seminar with our Guest of Honor. In the afternoon there is a Pub-Crawl with a motor coach picking up crawlers at the Hilton hotel’s front door and returning them just in time for a short of rest before the Awards Banquet on Saturday night.

You might be asking: “When exactly is this spectacular event?” Officially, SC09 will kick off with the commencement of judging at noon on Friday, November 13thand end with the awards ceremony the evening of Saturday, November 14th. Actually, there is a lot more that will be happening at the hotel. For example, there will be a BYO Belgian Beer & Stinky Cheese party Thursday night. After the judging on Friday, we will be hosting a Beer Festival organized by Kathleen Hicks and her trusty Assistance, Mitch Plyter. Dinner will be included in the price of admission and we are working on music and other fun events.
The fun continues on Saturday! Attendees are welcome to a Seminar with Guest of Honor speaker. This is followed by the resumption of judging. In the afternoon there is a Pub-crawl (details of stops TBD) with the bus picking up crawlers at the hotel front door and returning them just in time for a short of rest before theAwards Banquet.
Unofficially, SC09 starts weeks earlier with the receiving and registering of entries. This year that will be done at Austin & Renee Hardy’s home in Sorrento, Florida.Entry deadline is Sunday, November 2nd. So, bring your entries to our monthly meeting or drop them off at Hearts Homebrew Supply. We are working on a Homebrew Underground Railroad to pick up entries at remote locations around Florida so people can avoid the UPS drop kick treatment. Details on this will follow. Also, the early round judging will be done in Sorrento November 6th, 7th & 8th, 2009
At this point, I’m sure you are asking: “Wow! That sounds GREAT! How do I sign up?” The best way is to keep watching the CFHB Brewsletter and our websitewww.cfhb.org/sunshine for details. In the meanwhile, you can help out by volunteering for one of the teams that need help. Just drop us an e-mail at:firstname.lastname@example.org .
Of course, we always need help with entries. Specifically, brew and enter then volunteer to judge and/or steward. Plan on attending and bringing homebrew to the hotel and having FUN!
