Iron Brewer 2014

E-mail Print PDF

Okay folks.  You've seen the announcements this week via iChat and/or heard about Iron Brewer at tonight's meeting.  We are looking for two person teams to compete in a brewing free-for-all featuring a secret ingredient that everyone is required to use (hard candy, cereal, and nuts were previous years examples).  Here are the details for Iron Brewer.

 

Date: Saturday June 7th

 

Location: Brew Brothers - Hillsboro

 

Schedule:

8:00am - Set-up your equipment

8:30am - Secret Ingredient is revealed.  30min timer to declare BJCP/Brewer's Association style that you will operate within begins.

9:00am - Style declaration is due.  You have 1 hour to shop for ingredients.

10:00am - Finish shopping for ingredients and begin brewing.

5:00pm - Finish brewing (retire for a well earned beer in the Tap Room)

 

Cost: The club will be putting up $15 per team towards their ingredients.  (If you go beyond the $15 limit, the difference is the responsibility of the team to pay.)

 

Finished beers will be judged by a panel of knowledgeable and impartial brewers using BJCP guidelines used in official competitions.  They will also be judged by the club members in the same format as the monthly "People's Choice" awards.  Winners will receive prizes for their hard work and creativity.

 

It is time to form your team and formally throw your hat into the ring.  Once you have a brewing partner, please declare it on iChat so we can begin to form a roster of participants.  If you do not have a partner and would like one, sound that out on iChat too.  We will help pair you up with someone else that is searching.  This is an event that many of us look forward to all year long.  Come on out and see for yourself, you won't regret it.  (Spectators/Supporters are encouraged and welcome).

Our new membership dues structure that we have been talking about is now in place.  Dues for the year are now owed on January 1st for all members.  If you have not paid for 2014, you can pay on-line using Paypal, or bring cash or check to the next meeting you attend.
As always, bring your homebrew to share (2 -22oz will usually do).  Who knows, you could walk away with a $10 Gift Certificate to Brew Brothers for winning People's Choice.
We will see you at Max's!
