Wort Transformation Challenge

Again this year we’ll be Celebrating American Craft Beer week with the birth of America craft beer began – Homebrewing! As many of you already know our roots are in homebrewing, and last year was our very first homebrew competition, but as you may recall…we don’t do anything ‘normal’. So we dreamed up the Wort Transformation Challenge ~ For this Homebrew competition, our brewers (Tyson & Sam) brewed up some Wheat wort. As you might recall from last year, once the wort is brewed, we divide it among the entries. Each homebrewer brings in a container to the brew pub and takes 5 or 10 gallons of wort home.

It is then their job to add yeast and copious amounts of creativity to create a real brewers whim!

On February 8th, 2013 you can sign up again for this years Wort Transformation Challenge.

We’ll start registration at 11am. If we don’t fill up on Friday during business hours, you’ll be able to register again starting at 11am on Saturday, but since we will only take the first 60 entries, this will fill up fast.

**Last Year by 1pm on Saturday -
Don’t forget your $10 per 5gal (2 5gal entry limit) entry fee!

Once you’ve registered, you can bring in your carboy or brewing bucket on March 1st to pick up your wort. then do your magic, bottle it and bring a 6 pack of it back on May 10th! (Judging on May 14th and the Awards ceremony on May 16th)

New this year, our best in show winner will brew their beer for our Ale Nation!
