About the Competition: The Midwest Homebrewer of the year competition uses the results from several homebrew competitions throughout the midwest. The homebrewer with the most accumulated points from beer, mead, and cider BJCP category entries wins the Midwest Homebrewer of the Year award.

About the Competition
The Midwest Homebrewer of the Year competition selects the top homebrewer from the Midwest based upon points earned in participating competitions. The homebrewer with the highest Net Score at the end of year wins the title of "Midwest Homebrewer of the Year" and receives significant Prizes. Points are accumulated by winning 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in any of the homebrew competitions in the MWHBOY Circuit. A brewer's accumulated points are multipled by his winning percentage (his ratio of medals to entries) to calculate his Net score, upon which the competition's rankings are based. For a detailed description of the competition rules and the formula used to calculate a brewer's Net Score, please visit the Rules page.
The winners for the 2017 competition year will be announced soon. There may be one or two more competitions that will be included in the standings. 2017 should be finalized within the next two weeks.
