BEERmuda Triangle Homebrew Competition Live Finals Tonight!

Ever heard of the Beermuda Triangle?  It’s the triangle created by Hop City, Octane Coffee, and 5 Seasons West. That’s one triangle I love getting lost in.

Recently Hop City, with 5 Seasons and Octane Coffee came together to host the first home brew competition.  Entrants were allowed no more than 3 entries, and had to provide 3 bottles of each.  The beer was evaluated on pure merit alone, with no knowledge of style, ingredients, or who made it.  Basically, taste and enjoyment.

The first round wrapped up on Sunday – narrowing a field of 110 entries to 26.  (It was a tasty, fun task.)  The 26 remaining entries were carefully scrutinized and narrowed to 5.  But!!! Those 5 will remain a secret until the finals tonight, February 9th at 7 pm  at 5 Seasons Westside.  The finalists will be announced, and then live judging will take take place.  Judges include – Kraig Torres of Hop City, Crawford Moran, and Tony Riffel of Octane Coffee.  Guest judges to be announced at the event.

The winner of the Beermuda Triangle Homebrew Competition will get the opportunity to brew the winning entry with brewer-genius Crawford Moran of 5 Seasons West, and have his or her entry featured on draft!

So… make sure you make it tonight by 7 pm!  Should be a lot of fun!!
