HOMEBREW WINNER — A homebrewer from Ohio was one of two winners of the Pilsner Urquell 2012 Master Homebrewer Competition. Jeff Lewis of Hilliard captured first place at the competition finals July 26 in Chicago, earning a trip with New York winner William Pozniak to Plzen, Czech Republic, later this year to tour the brewery and brew a batch of beer with Pilsner Urquell’s brewmaster Vaclav Berka. “Pilsner Urquell has been inspiring my brewing for more than 10 years, and the competition was an exciting conclusion to a yearlong effort to improve my pilsner,” Lewis said.
