2018 Florida Homebrewer of the Year - Nicholas Stephens

Nick joined Special Hoperations Homebrew Club in 2012 and credits the group with drastically improving his brewing prowess. While he most enjoys brewing his signature IPA’s, he has also achieved accolades in a wide variety of styles, including Best of Show – Cider & Mead in the most recent Best Florida Beer Homebrew Competition. As president of Special Hoperations Homebrew Club he lead them to their third state title in the past five years, while simultaneously distinguishing himself as 2018’s Homebrewer of the Year.
