More than 28 home-brewed beers were entered into the inaugural Home Brew Competition at Frog Level Brewng Company on Saturday.

Locally certified beer judges, including BearWaters brewer Kevin Sandefur and Frog Level brewer Taylor Rogers, sampled all the brews and scored each one in several different categories.

After the winners were announced, everyone had the chance to sample the home brews. In addition to the beer competition, a chili-cook-off was held.
