One final reminder that this Saturday is our 2nd annual Iron Home Brewer competition. The secret ingredient this year was Rye, so bring your best Rye offerings and come ready to taste away. The event is being held outside (weather permitting) at Midwest Supplies in St Louis Park from 12 to 3pm and everyone is welcome! Midwest gives us a large parking lot space, so kids, bring your scooters and balls.
There will be two prizes for rye beers–one awarded by a panel of judges, and the other awarded by people’s choice. If you brewed either or both of the AHA Big Brew recipes this year, then bring those beers to enter a contest for those–yes, there are prizes.
Thirty pounds of Cascade hops, donated by Summit Brewing, will be given away in one-pound increments.
Pat and Hank McNeely will be putting on a mead demonstration at 1:00, so bring your mead questions and your notebooks. (and your mead!)
All homebrew (as well as delicious commercial beer) is very welcome, and the club jockey box will be available. Anyone who brings at least 60 ounces of a particular beer will receive credit in the Brewers of Fame Program.
