For the passionate amateurs who toil away at home to create batches of brews, this festival offers a chance to show off their beers and compete to see who is the best local brewer in Long Beach.

More than 20 home brewers will be serving all sorts of homemade beers on Nov. 11 as part of the second annual Long Beach Homebrew Festival.

“The concept is just to spotlight local brewers… We’re just excited to allow them to showcase their beer for a larger audience,” said Scott Jones, who, along with his sister Robin Jones, runs the nonprofit We Love Long Beach, organizers of the beer festival.

To keep with the home theme, the festival takes place in the backyard of a house in Long Beach, which has space for about 300 people who will vote for their favorite beer.

The winner gets the People’s Choice Trophy for a year before it’s passed to the next winner in 2018.

So before they start pouring, meet a few of the Long Beach brewers who will be taking part in the event.
