Enter the first ever national organic homebrew competition, hosted by Seven Bridges cooperative and registered with the American Homebrewers Association.
The homebrewer with the highest scoring beer East of the Mississippi will get to brew their award-winning beer with professional brewers on the 40 barrel system at Otter Creek (makers of Wolaver’s organic beers) in Middlebury, VT.
The top scoring entry from West of the Mississippi will get to brew their beer at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing in Santa Cruz, CA. Each winning beer will be offered by the respective brewery as a limited special release.
DEADLINE: Entries must be received by October 19th.
(Sorry if this is the first you’ve heard about this and don’t have time to brew; this post is really just a reminder/update on previous posts about this competition).
There are prizes for first, second, and third place in each of the 15 style categories, including $25 worth of free organic homebrewing supplies, t-shirts from organic breweries, pint glasses, and recipe books.
First place ‘Best of Show’ gets a hefty $250 worth of organic brewing supplies, an organic cotton Seven Bridges t-shirt, and a one year membership in the Organic Buyers Club. And second and third place Best of Show get generous organic goods too.
All the details are right here. So get that entry shipped out ASAP.
Oh, and if you live anywhere near Santa Cruz, you can still sign up to judge or steward at the competition. Just contact Seven Bridges to volunteer.
