The 2016 Garage Brewed Moto Show – Our show entries are curated by our review committee and invited to participate. The exhibitors put a lot of time, energy and passion into bringing their best bikes to the event for your enjoyment. Unlike most shows our judging is by the public attendees at the event using digital voting kiosks by sponsor: ElectronicArt.com. So there is no panel of snotty judges with white gloves and inspection glasses. No, the attending public choose their favorites and the chips fall where they may. You’ll have to impress your fellow garage builder or motorcycle enthusiast or bike curious public if you want to win a “Grophie” (Growler trophy).
The winners from our 2016 entrants are shown below and we’d like to give them all a huge thank you and round of applause. Well, internet applause at least. Show your love via social media with hash tags of #GarageBrewed and #Rhinegeist.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to the sponsors who provided swag for winners including: REV’IT, Avon Tyres, Spectro Oil, TC Bros, Workshop Hero, DEI Power Sports and thanks to additional sponsors helping with making the show happen including: Dime City Cycles, Haney Printing, Excuterra Moto Excursions, Electronic Art, The Dunlap Cafe (host of our official after party) and the generous time and labor from members of the Cincinnati Cafe Racer club, who worked tirelessly to build, staff and execute the show. Without this stunning moto community that loves to come together to grow the community… this show would never happen. Kudos.
