Faramania Homebrew Competition

Valuable feedback

FARAMANIA is a homebrew competition with a valuable input into
making hop history.

The homebrewers are able to trial Charles Faram experimental hop varieties where only a handful of hop cones are yet in existence.

This quantity is way too small to send to commercial brewers for trial, so this process enables us to fast-track brand new varieties through the Charles Faram Hop Development Programme.

The process

In February a standard bittering hop and a sample of a Charles Faram experimental variety were sent to the participating brewers from Midland Craft Brewers, Hereford Homebrew Club and Worcestershire Homebrew club.

We watched the progress of the brews through social media and reports from the WhatsApp group as brewers excitedly made regular updates.

The judging

In 2022 the judging took place Saturday 9th April at Sociable Beer in Worcester with commercial brewers and homebrewers on the panels.
