Local homebrewers are encouraged to bring their favorite hop-forward beer to Twisted Pine’s ale house by December 31st for submission. That’s right, the only style guideline is to be expressive with hops! Entry forms are available at the brewery and can be filled out upon delivery. Registration is limited to two beers per brewer, with two bottles required per entry. Twisted Pine’s brewers will serve as judges for the contest and the winner will be revealed at an announcement party at the brewery on January 11th. Under the guidance of Twisted Pine’s award-winning brewers, the grand prize winner will scale up their recipe and brew a 10 bbl batch on the brewery’s system. The beer will then be available for a limited time at the ale house and a few other select local accounts.
