VERSAILLES — The Midwestern Ohio Brewing Society (MOBS) in collaboration with sponsorship from Endless Pint Brewery and Poultry Days will host its second Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) sanctioned homebrew competition on Sunday, Aug. 16, in Versailles.

The “Poultry and Pints” competition is limited to 30 entries with each person limited to two entries, each in a separate subcategory. The deadline to register is Aug. 5 and all entries must be received by end of day Aug. 9. The registration fee is $10 per entry and delivery instructions are provided at registration.

In addition to awards, the Best of Show will have the opportunity to brew their recipe at Endless Pint Brewing in Versailles.
