The Winnipeg Brew Bombers are pleased to announce the second annual Half Pints Pro/Am Brew Challenge.
Registration is now open at http://registration.winnipegbrewbombers.ca
After a very successful inaugural event last year with more than 400 entries, we are back and ready for more.
We have a couple of changes planned.
New dates: There were a few weather challenges last year, so we’ve pushed the dates up a bit. This year, it’s Sept 29– Oct 4, 2014, with judging taking place Oct. 1 to 4.
Limited entries: We have limited the amount of entries to six per brewer (both amateur and professional). The prize for the amateur brewer that receives the most accumulated points will receive the almost complete set of Classic Beer Styles Series books(the Lambic book has been discontinued). We will add Michael Tonsmeire’s new book “American Sour Beers”.
More fun: We will have more casual interaction and more great food and beer. We are planning additional events surrounding the competition so that judges, stewards, competitors and casual craft beer fans can gather together and enjoy some of the fantastic beer and food available here in Winnipeg. Click here for more information: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. (You can also click the “Half Pints Pro/ Am Challenge” in the header above).
Back again: We are thrilled to have Half Pints back as our title sponsor. Like last year, they will brew the winning amateur beer at their brewery and bring it to market. Last year’s Best in Show winning beer, brewed by Dean Kelly of Saskatoon, will be available during the competition so you’ll be able to try it.
We will have other great prizes to give away and amazing feedback by BJCP certified judges.
Check back for more details as they become available.
We look forward to your entries, and happy brewing.
A special thanks goes out to the sponsors for the Half Pints Pro/Am Brew Challenge.
