BBC to Put Homebrew Contest Winner on Tap

louisville beer - bluegrass brewing company logoAttention homebrewers: Bluegrass Brewing Company is serving up the opportunity for some serious bragging rights on Sept. 15 with its American Homebrewers Association rally and brew-in. Not only is it the first AHA rally in Kentucky, but if your brew wins the accompanying competition, BBC will brew  your concoction in its commercial system and put it on tap for the next full year.

That’s pretty freaking cool.

The theme of the competition is session IPA, and BBC will mash one common wort of 12 Plato (1.048) from domestic pale malt to serve as the base for everyone’s beer. According to the rules, brewers may add up to three adjuncts, specialty or steeping ingredients.

This rally is designed to promote homebrewing in the local community and to drive membership for homebrewing clubs and the AHA. The event is, of course, part of Louisville’s Craft Beer Week, and is free and open to the public. Find out more at the official Facebook event.
