*Pop-Up Happy Hour hosted by Lemonstreet Brewing Company Wednesday, October 23rd beginning at 5:30 pm.
*Master Mystery Brew Off hosted by JBI Saturday, November 2nd (8:00 am – ?)
This is CASK’s event for AHAs Learn To Homebrew Day. Teams of brewers will brew their best, most interesting beer using standard base ingredients and a choice of “mystery” ingredients. JBI is providing base malt, some specialty grains, and a choice of dry yeast. Bittering hops will also be provided. Club members are providing a variety of other ingredients (think dry peanut extract, honey, grain adjuncts, fruit purees, dollarweed (?), etc, etc.). Teams will have tickets that will determine their order in choice of specialty ingredients. You cannot bring or buy other ingredients – use just what is provided. The finished beers will be served at the Club’s annual banquet in January. A people’s choice award will be given to the best beer!
*2nd Annual Home-Brew Competition hosted by V Pizza Mandarin Tap Garden Sunday, November 3rd. Judging is from 10:00 – 12:00 pm and festival is 12:00 – 3:00 pm. This will be V Pizza’s second year hosting this event for charity. The event is two in one – a homebrew competition and a beer festival. The CASK Club can participate in two ways:
- V Pizza needs judges for the home brew comp portion of the event / looking for eight to ten judges DO NOT NEED TO BE CERTIFIED (Mike Lentz runs this portion) / this would run from 10am-12pm
- CASK is welcome to set up a tent for the festival portion and sample our homebrews draught and or package. Our tent would only need about three sixtels of product. Ideally it would be great if a member would take lead on setting this up / I can assist 12pm-3pm
This event was a huge success last year and a lot of fun.
Please send me an email at [email protected] and let me know if you are interested in judging, festival or both.
Thank you Seven Bridges Grille & Brewery for hosting CASK’s annual Comp de L’Abbaye Normale today!
