Gateway CDC to Hold Home-Brew Beer Fest
Home-brewers to compete across multiple categories for prestige, prizes.
This one's for the beer lovers out there.
The Gateway Community Development Corporation will be hosting a home-brewing beer festival later this year.
Dubbed the Gateway CDC Craft Beer Showcase, the event is designed to highlight the home-brewing scene in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
The showcase will see 25 home brewers competing in a juried competition across five categories–lagers, brown and pale ales, stouts and porters, saisons, hefeweizens and witbiers, smoked or sour, and specialty beers–to see who brews the best beer.
The craft beer showcase will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the Optimum Restaurant, Lounge and Sports Bar on Baltimore Avenue in Brentwood.
The competition is open to non-professional home brewers over the age of 21 living in DC, Maryland and Virginia. The event will crown a grand champion brewer, who will win a $100 Visa gift card as well as a one-year complimentary membership to the Gateway CDC. There will also be a popular vote champion who will win a $50 Visa gift card and a one-year complimentary membership to the Gateway CDC.
Competition registration has already opened. Full information can be found here.
The registration deadline is on April 24, 2013. Entrants must submit their beers for judging between May 20 and May 27, 2013.
