Episode 226 – 2nd Annual Homebrew Competition with Guest Judges Aubrey Herbert & Jake Taylor!
It’s contest time in the bar as we host our 2nd annual Homebrew contest! Joining us on our panel of judges are fan faves Aubrey Herbert & Jake Taylor! Here are our results!
1st Place- Chris Nadeau with Trips up North Black IPA
2nd Place- Carl Hoverstad with Syksyn Saison
3rd Place- Heath Perkins with Amber Alert Hoppy Amber Ale
We also are awarding a special jury prize for best label to John Beal II for Purrrgatory Pale Ale!
Before the merriment we have news beginning with The HuffPo reporting BrewDog is now giving its staff a week’s paid ‘Pawternity’ leave! Next we have The Calgary Herald showing that Alberta’s craft beer policy is causing collateral damage, followed by Draft Magazine asking why are so many breweries selling their beer in 15-packs? We wind up this week’s news with UPI revealing how scientists turn brewing waste into fresh yeast to make more beer and The Independent telling you how to bathe in brew at the world’s first beer swimming pools!
We have your responses to last week’s #caskquiz which asked “how much do you usually pay for a six-pack of beer?” and this week we want to know “have you ever homebrewed and what was your first style?”
It’s also time for our 2nd Tales Homebrew Contest! We want to try your best homebrew and there are two categories: true to style and the wildcard! With our recent travels, we are extending the deadline one week! It’s now August 28, 2017! For more details click here!
