It's that time again! No more brotherly love as we cut to the quick, slit each others throat, and stomp on your neighbors hops.... that's right... Iron Brewer is back! Bring your knowledge, your equipment, your yeast, and your partner as you will go head to head with your fellow club members to see who reigns this year as the Iron Brewer! Get ready for the hops and barley to start flying as teams of brewers battle to see who can brew the best beer.
Just like the Food Network’s Iron Chef, once the surprise ingredient(s) is/are revealed, brewers will have 30 minutes to declare a style and formulate a recipe. Once that time is up, you'll have an hour to go shopping for the ingredients you'll need to brew your masterpiece (the club is paying for the first $15 of ingredients). After that, LET THE BREWING BEGIN! The teams will then be able to take their beers home for fermentation. A time and place will be determined for judging as well as awards. Judging will be based on style and how well the secret ingredient is showcased. There will also be a people’s choice award based on the same criteria.
