What have you got brewing at the moment? Whether you steep, brew, or ferment, it’s time to get cranking on your homebrew drink-related projects for the Homebrew Contest.

The winners will take home fabulous prizes from from Klean Kanteen including vacuum insulated growlers, water bottles, cups, and more. The lucky grand prize winner takes home a MacBook Air!

Although the term “homebrew” is sometimes used to refer to other types of DIY creations, for the purposes of this contest, we’re looking specifically for steeped, brewed, and fermented homebrewed drinks.
