WATERFORD — Home brewers have two days left before the deadline for entries in the Waterford Historical Museum and Cultural Center‘s first homebrew competition.
The low-key competition of Irish- and Scottish-style brews is scheduled for August 5 as part of a special “First Friday Open House” at the Center. Judges will be visitors who will select their favorites for first, second and third places.
There will be live Irish piper music, and the museum will be open. The tasting is inspired by the museum’s new exhibit, “Making Waterford Our Home: Irish.” A suggested donation of $5 for the tasting includes museum admission.
To register a homebrew by the Friday deadline, call (518) 238-0809 or submit the online form. Entries preferably should be based on one of the styles outlined by the Beer Judging Certification Program. At least 12 bottles will be required.
9A. Scottish Light 60/-

The competition and open house will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the museum, located in the 1830 Hugh White Homestead at 2 Museum Lane, just off Saratoga Avenue (Route 32) in this Saratoga County community.
