15th Annual Michigan Beer Cup (2024)

A Single State Competition


The Michigan Beer Cup is a state-wide tournament that promotes brewing through education and competition. It was founded in 2010 by a group of individuals, club representatives, and store owners throughout Michigan to preserve the spirit of the Michigan State Fair Homebrew competition. The Michigan Beer Cup strives to continue the traditions of this competition by maintaining and growing one of the most significant single state beer judging events in the country. The Michigan Beer Cup is a Beer Judging Certification Program (BJCP) sanctioned event.
