Not since, last year has the struggle to maintain a boil in the rampant insanity of home brewing and competing for best of show been captured and culminated in such an epic event of absurd and outrageous proportions. Enter your choice concoction, come enjoy and have a home brew. This is an action packed, beer filled weekend, you will not want to miss!

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.

Sunshine Challenge 2013 will kick off with the commencement of judging at 9 am on Friday, November 1st and end with the awards ceremony the evening of Saturday, November 2nd. 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. Dinner will be included in the Festival ticket price of admission.
The fun continues on Saturday! Gold pass attendees are welcome to a special seminar with our Guest of Honor, Oscar Wong of Highland Brewing. In the afternoon there is a Pub-Crawl with a motor coach picking up crawlers at the Comfort Inn & Suites hotel’s front door and returning them just in time for a short of rest before the Awards Banquet on Saturday night.

Brewers who want to enter the beer competition, will want to read about the deadlines and registration guideline here on the website.
