The date and time for the first, hopefully annual, Hemisphere Brewing/Rockwall Brewers Association Pro-Am brew competition is set. Judging will be held Saturday Febrewary 24th at 5:00pm at Hemisphere Brewery.
The competition is best in show, and will be judged by a panel picked by Hemisphere. The winner will have the opportunity to brew a 4 barrel version of their beer at Hemisphere to be served on tap there.
There is no set style, so brew what you want. The only exception is no sour beers, or barrel aged beers, we don’t why to tie up their fermentation space for to long. To enter you will need to bring 3 unmarked brown bottles of your beer to Hemisphere.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
The cut off for getting your bluebonnet ticket through RBA will be February 23rd. This is because there is a cut off for the discounted room rate for the event, and we will need to have a final head count by then. If we don’t have money in hand we can not save you a spot. You can pay for your spot through Paypal, or email to arrange to pay in cash if you prefer.
The Bluebonnet Brew Off, March 23rd and 24th, is the largest single day homebrew competition in the state, and we want to encourage Rockwall Brewers Members to attend and compete. So we decided that the club will help to subsidize the cost for members wishing to attend. If you purchase your tickets through us the cost for both days will be $45. In addition the club will be renting several rooms for members to stay in, probably 4 to a room. Contact us if you are interested. We will announce a cutoff date for buying through us since we will need to have a firm number to know how many rooms to book.
