Judge & Steward

Our volunteers come from many different backgrounds, careers, and all walks of life. Some are highly trained active judges, stewards, and others are just starting out.  We need your help to make Best Florida Beer Homebrew a success! Please register to help with our competition.

Lunch will be provided each day and a commemorative pilsner glass will be provided to judges and stewards alike. Judges will giftsalso receive a BFB Homebrew Competition t-shirt while supplies & sizes last.
