Big Brew Day and Homebrew Competition

Big Brew Day comes but once a year and is a nationwide celebration of the homebrewing community.  This year we will host Big Brew day on the patio at Fiction Beer Company followed one month later by a homebrew competition for a chance to enter a Pro-Am beer into GABF!

Big Brew Day:

We will clear the tables off our patio and allow brewers to bring their equipment down and set up to brew starting at 9am.  We will have plenty of hot water (~163 F) available from our Hot Liquor Tank.  Come on down brew your beer (using the recipe of your choice, you do not need to stick to the official Big Brew Day Recipe) hang out with other brewers, talk beer and drink beer!

Homebrew Competition:

On June 4th, bring your beer back to Fiction for a homebrew competition.  Your beer will be scored and ranked blind by our judges.  The winning recipe will be brewed on our 7 bbl system and entered into the Great American Beer Festival Pro-Am competition.  Only beers brewed on big brew day will be allowed to enter!
