“Midwest IPA” Home Brew Contest:  This year marks our 4th annual Home Brew contest & we could not be more excited! The winner will produce their beer on our 10 BBL Brewhouse for serving in our tasting room as well as at a tap account (location TBD). As in previous years, we will be providing Briess base malt, common specialties & Fermentis yeast. In addition, feel free to provide any other items you want to add (you may ask Gordon for ingredients that are not common to the home brew shop as well).

  • The Beer: This year we want YOU to be creative and produce a very tasty IPA, with a catch… We have the West Coast IPA, The New England (East Coast IPA) but there really is no IPA that represents the Midwest. The brew can be malty or not, dry or sweet, cloudy or clear…the point is you have free reign to make what you believe would be popular. Below you will find some important dates. Get creative and get your samples entered in the contest!
  • Important Dates:
  • Grain Pickup: Friday, February 3rd from 5-8pm, OR Saturday, February 4th from 2-5pm
  • Beer Samples: Due by Saturday, March 24th
  • Beer Judging: Sunday, March 25th – We will be judging solely on the premises of aroma, taste and can/would we (and the public) drink more than one glass. We will not be judging per BJCP guidelines, as this is a creative contest.
