The First Coast Cup Was a Success!!!

Well, that’s a wrap! We are excited to have held another successful First Coast Cup and so thankful to Ruby Beach Brewing Company for graciously hosting our competition this year. There are too many people to thank that helped volunteer their time and effort to pull off this huge event, but know we couldn’t have done it without each of you!

It’s always a great feeling when you win your own competition. Overall, CASK took home 10 Gold medals, 5 Silver medals, and 8 Bronze medals in the 2021 FCC. You can view the full list of medal winners here. Congratulations Everyone!

April’s Interklub Entry Error

We are experiencing some issues with the interklub entry tool here on the web page, if you have not gotten the label print screen then we did not receive your entry for this month’s interklub competition, Hazy IPAs.  We are sorry for the hassle but we would like for you to email Matt, our Competition Director, with the following information and then rubber band a piece of paper with your name onto your entries.  If there is any doubt as to whether we have your entry, please do not hesitate to reach out to Matt.  Our apologies.

In the subject line:

Then in the email body add:

  • Brewer
  • Co-Brew
  • Sub-Category
  • Notes: NEIPA, it’s hops, and strength.
