The fourth annual National Organic Brewing Challenge is upon us. And this time it is hitting home. I mean really hitting home. For the first time ever the competition will be held somewhere other than the Seven Bridge’s hometown of Santa Cruz, California — instead it will be in Washington D.C.
Er, well, technically it will be Shirlington, Virginia at the Capitol City Brewing brewpub. But I volunteered to receive the beer entries at mi casa in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of D.C.
If you haven’t started brewing yet, now is the time. No time left for delay. Get in the kitchen today or this weekend at the latest and brew a batch of organic homebrew. Follow the instructions below for brewing and entering the contest. We’ll be looking for judges and stewards so stay tuned for details.
