Iron Brewer Brewing Competition!
The Iron Brewer Competition is a single-elimination bracket-style competition that will force you to step outside of your brewing comfort zone.
16 brewers will be paired off into a playoff-style bracket. The victor from each round will progress to the next round where they will face a new challenge and opponent.
Judging sessions will be open to participants in the competition and a limited number of the public. It’s a great time to get to know other brewers and sample their creations. Judging sessions will also be recorded so they can be posted to the Internet for viewing by the public and any participants unable to attend.
As a participant, it is your responsibility to make sure your beer is at the judging location prior to the start of the judging session. If your beer is not available by the time judging begins, you will forfeit that round.
Registration closes at 11:59:59 PM, February 19, 2017 or when all spots are filled. Launch party / round 1 bracket setup will be Saturday, February 25, 2017 4-6 PM.
We will be adding additional prizes as we move forward:
- One registration for the Midwest Craft Brewer’s Conference at UW Stout, July 31-August1, 2017. (Up to $300 value)
- $125 gift certificate to Beverage Artisan (Hardware excluded)
- Collaboration brew with Real Deal Beer!
- $75 gift Certificate to Beverage Artisan (Hardware excluded)
- 1 T-shirt per paid participant
- Real Deal Beer Glassware
Some ingredients will be provided for some of the challenges, but you will be free to use additional ingredients you believe will help you make the best beer possible
Judges will select the beers that progress to the next round, but those who attend the judging sessions will be able to vote on their favorites. Winners of the People’s Choice award at each round will receive beer-related awards to be announced at each session.
