Where is my local Gahan House?
We have Gahan House locations in Charlottetown, Halifax, Saint John, Moncton and Fredericton.
How do I submit a beer into the Maritime Home Brew Challenge?
To submit a brew you must provide up to 6 bottles of the beer ~ 355mL or larger. You must drop it off by October 27th to your local Gahan House with a completed submission form. There is also a $30 submission fee to enter a beer into this challenge that must be paid upon drop off.
How do I pay my submission fee?
You can pay with cash, credit or debit at the Gahan House location you are dropping your beer off to. Once this is paid, you will receive a complimentary Maritime Home Brew Challenge t-shirt (not bad, eh?!).
Should I label my entries?
Yes – please put your name, your beer name and beer style on each beer bottle you drop off. You must drop off at least 6 355mL or larger bottles.
Are there any beer recipe rules?
Only two. Your beer must qualify as one of three styles: IPA (any style), Mixed Fermented/ Sour, Stout and a portion of every brew needs to be partially mashed or steeped.
Can anyone submit a beer?
Yes! As long as you are not a certified brewer or brew for your career (and you are over the age of 19).
Can multiple people submit a beer together?
Absolutely! We’re all about partnerships. The person/ team listed on the submission form claims the prize.
What are the prizes?
