BrewUnited Hall of Homebrew Heroes

HomeBrew Hero is a prestigious, "lifetime achievement" type award meant to honor those special brewers who demonstrate repeated excellence. To qualify for consideration, a brewer must enter three beers (the maximum number of entries allowed) into a single BrewUnited Challenge event, and each beer must score high enough to qualify for a medal. Furthermore, no more than three such brewers may be recognized in any given year. Finally, this is an award that may onlybe won once per brewer.

In 2015, we had one hundred sixty-five brewers enter the BrewUnited Challenge, fifty-two of which entered three beers. Of those, exactly three brewers scored well enough on all three entries to be eligible for designation as a Homebrew Hero.
