The first THIRSTY homebrew competition was held Spring of 1994 with 104 entries. In 2003 the name was changed to the THIRSTY Classic and has endured until 2016. Regretfully, the THIRSTY Classic has been retired.
Through the years the Classic has been supported by Millstream Brewing and their staff. Millstream was the receiver for the entries and the site of the competition itself. Millstream Brewery was a perfect venue for our competition. Since 2003 I have been the competition coordinator. I have handled each bottle entered (~1500 entries), managed the data entry of entrant information, and mailed ribbons and score sheets. Through this process I feel like I know many of you. Over the years I began to recognize familiar names of people who supported the competition by entering their beer, mead or cider year after year. I had the good fortune to sample your entries after the judging finishedl. I have formed great friendships with judges who came year after year to help make the THIRSTY competition successful. You judges deserve a hand, as judging at the Classic wasn’t always a smooth process.
