2nd Anniversary and Home Brew Contest at our NW 23rd Location
Celebrate our second anniversary with us from 3-11pm and vote for your favorite European-style home brew in the People’s Choice category! We will have a bunch of swag to give away and other special treats throughout the day!
For the home brew contest, entries will be accepted in all European beer styles. Winners will be determined by our panel of judges, plus there will also be a People’s Choice award. The winners in each category will receive a $100 gift certificate and bragging rights for 1 year.
Email your name, email address, contact phone and which beer style(s) you will be submitting for to email@example.com by Wednesday April 25, 2018.
Submit four 12-oz bottles or two 22-oz bottles of beer for each category you enter no later than Friday, April 27, 2018. Your name, contact info and beer style must be taped (or some other secure, waterproof method–do not merely rubber band a label to the bottle please) to each bottle submitted. Please feel free to add ABV (if you know it), or any other notes about the beer for the judges.
The People’s Choice voting will start at 3pm and continue while supplies last.
