Three times a year, we invite club members to brew a beer with a randomly selected hop, a grain, and an adjunct. The random aspect encourages brewers to get outside their comfort zone and brew something they normally wouldn’t try. And just to keep things interesting, the club votes for a winner, who gets to host the Iron Brewer Trophy until the next winner is selected!
Here are the three competitions this year (to be judged at the listed monthly meeting):
- March: Calypso hops, Special B malt, coconut
- July: Tettnang hops, Victory malt, hazelnut
- October: Willamette hops, Maris Otter malt, coffee
Start planning early, and let’s get some great entries!
