The Winnipeg Brewbombers are pleased to announce the second annual Half Pints Pro/Am Brew Challenge.
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). There will be a prize for the pro and amateur brewer who receives the most accumulated points.
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.
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.
