Bay area man wins best home brew

Posted: Updated:

Who brews the best beer in the country?

Some says it's Robert Hilferding. He has a small brewery at his home in Zephyrhills.

He beat out 8,000 brewers to win the "Homebrewer of the Year" award in the 2014 National Brewer Competition.

His winning beer is a Scottish light sixty named "Way Off Kilter."

"I was looking on Facebook and one of my friends said congrats for winning homebrewer of the year," said Hilferding. "I'm still riding the wave of a 65-year-old man acting like a giddy teenager because I still can't hardly believe it."

Unfortunately, people can't buy his beer.

It's illegal for home brewers to sell their beer to the public, however, Hilferding is allowed to give it away.
