About Home Brewed

Well-known as “The Brew City,” Milwaukee has a long-standing reputation for all things beer, a reputation made possible by the creativity and innovation of local creators. Come share your love of good beer and great design with fellow designers and homebrewers as AIGA Wisconsin and the Beer Barons of Milwaukee put on their first-ever Home Brewed Beer & Label Competition. The final event will be held on Thursday, June 13th at the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee (click here for directions).

All Wisconsin homebrewers, designers, illustrators, creatives and community members age 21 or over are invited to pair up in teams to create custom craft beer and labels to be entered into the competition. A panel of celebrity judges will select best beer-label coupling based on pairing, creativity and presentation. All attendees will be able to cast their own votes for best beer-label pairing at the final event itself, where all winners will also be announced. Beer labels must be submitted online by Thursday, June 6th.
