Brewers Brewer – Winter Comp 2020

This is the clubs Winter competition, our second “Brewer’s Brewer” for 2020.  Essentially this an anonymous beer swap for Black beers and IPA’s. Your beers will be judged by your peers through the clubs online scoring systems. You will also receive 12-10 beers in return to judge yourself.  The top three winners will receive prizes and the overall winner will have their name engraved on the clubs trophy.

Even if you think you won’t win, this is a great way to get feedback from multiple brewers. Remember it anonymous, you get to decide who knows what you entered. Its also a good way to learn about beers style. Best of all, enjoying the presentation day with your peers and talk shop makes a great day.

We encourage all winners to provide a recipe for others to brew. Its a great way to learn/teach others. Initially it was winter stout comp, but thought it might get too heavy and repetitive. So, we added IPA’s. Enjoy the comp brewers!
