It's almost that time of year again for Gun Hill Brewer's Homebrew Hero Competition. The event will take place on Saturday, July 20th.
We hope you will all be able to attend and encourage you all to invite members of any home brew club you may be part of to participate as well. Please let me know as soon as possible if you plan on participating in the competition. The winning beer will be brewed at the brewery and sold in all our markets next year.
Here is what you will need to bring for the event:
-Beer for the crowd
-A jockey box or some other pouring apparatus
-Judging samples of your beer
For judging samples, we'd like 4 12 oz bottles if possible. The judging panel will be comprised of bar managers/beer buyers from the city, our brew team, other local brewers, and a few reps from our distributor (they've got to sell the winner's beer!). Beer will be judged on the technical aspects of the style of beer you brew.
We will also be having a crowd favorite beer. We will allow everyone in attendance to vote on their favorite beer. Crowd favorite will receive a Gun Hill swag bag (t-shirt, hat, beers) and a $50 Gun Hill gift card.
All other participants will receive a $20 Gun Hill gift card.
Anyone is welcome to bring their beer in advance of the competition and we can store it in our walk in. If you cannot bring the beer the day of the event, and need help getting it to Gun Hill Brewery, please let us know ASAP so we can help make accommodations.
