Iron Brewer 2013

E-mail Print PDF

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.

Date: Saturday September 14th Time: 8:30am

Location: Brew Brothers homebrew supply and taproom, 2020 NW Aloclek Dr #107  Hillsboro, OR 97124 (off Cornelius Pass Rd.)

Equipment: Please bring your own.

Cost: $10 per team (To help offset the cost of grain)

Teams:  Teams of two brewers (If you don’t have a buddy, we will do our best to find you one).

Everyone is welcome. Brewers and families. (Please no pets)

Food:  There will be grilled dogs and sausages, but it would be nice if people also bring there “specialty” dish. Beverages:  Please bring some of your best beer – This is a beer event.


To answer a few questions before they are asked:

*Can you dry hop? Yes.
*Can spices be used? Yes, if they're on the shelf at Brew Brothers
*Can Promash be used? Yes, if you bring it, wifi is available
*How big of a batch can be made? As big as you want. You just have to pay for the extra ingredients.

It's that time again!

Our next meeting is coming up July 15th at Max's Fanno Creek Brewpub.

This month we'll be putting your taste-buds to the test. We'll supply the taster beer and you'll be filling out a BJCP score sheet. This may be a great way to fine tune your tasting skills.

Don't forget about the peoples choice award for best homebrew brought to the meeting. It's worth a $10 gift certificate to Brew Brothers! So bring your beer!

We have a new challenge starting with this meeting. It's called SMaSH - Single Malt and Single Hop. We'll have a list of hops, you'll decide which ONE you'll use and brew a beer using only a base malt (or extract). At the September meeting we'll sample all the beers! We're not looking for the best beer. We just want to compare the differences in hop flavor.

We'll also have time to talk about the beer you bring. If you're up for feedback, let us know.

Hope to see you there
