Competition time!

Sunday September 13th is a VERY busy day. Craft Beer Week will be in full swing by then, and there will also be 2 Brooklyn homebrew competitions. The first one will be the Chew N Brew, located at The Diamond in Greenpoint. 8 teams will be pairing there homebrew with a homemade snack. Tickets are $25, and 90% of the sales go to BARC animal shelter in Williamsburg. We didn't get to attend the Chew N Brew last year, so we are very excited to be apart of it this year. You should join us in our excitement.....

The next competition is The Brooklyn Cheese Experiment. These guys did a really great job with the Beer Experiment that was held in June. The competition is being held at The Bell House again, which is an awesome venue. This time around the Amateur Chefs will be cooking up some cheesy delights, while local local homebrewers will be serving up the brews. The audience gets to vote for their favorite as well a panel of judges. There is also an after party including more beer and cheese. Tickets in advance are $20, and they sold out last time, so buy some ASAP!

Everything here at the store has been going great. People seem to be gearing up for there fall brews. We have just finished our first batch of Root Beer, and its really delicious. We will likely have some extract Root Beer and Ginger Beer kits for sale next week, so look out for them. We have justed launched our spice collection. It's small right now but will increase in the future, check it out here. We have also added a few new grains, and yeast strains, and will be adding more soon. The site has changed a little bit, so hopefully it is easier to navigate. Thanks everyone, and we will see you Wednesday at the MBAS meeting at Mugs!
