Brewing your own beer, wine and even whiskey is becoming more and more popular these days. We want to see what the Instructables community has been brewing up - alcoholic or not!

Don't make your own alcohol? No worries! We also want to see your best cocktails and mocktails.

We’ve got a Grand Prize for both Brewing and Cocktails/Mocktails.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), November 18, 2013. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, February 10, 2014.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.

How It Works

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Nov 18, 2013 and Feb 10, 2014 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Homebrew & Cocktails Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
