Hello Fellow Homebrewers:

The 8th annual Ocean State Homebrew Competition (OSHC) is right around the corner. We are an AHA and BJCP sanctioned competition. All proceeds will benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. It’s not a competition without entries; I hope many of you will send in your homebrews. New this year, we have added a special category for the ubiquitous New England IPA.
