To promote homebrewing as a hobby, the Washoe Zephyr Zymurgists and Great Basin Brewing Company are co-sponsoring “The Great Basin Brew-Off”, a competition for homebrewers of all experience levels.
According to a press release today, Entrants will receive written feedback from certified judges which includes valuable suggestions on how to make future batch improvements.
First, second, and third place medals are awarded in each style grouping, and the overall winner, the “Best of Show”, gets the honor of brewing the entry with the professional brewers of Great Basin Brewing Company and having it entered in the premier national professional brewers competition, the Great American Beer Festival, held in Denver, Colorado each fall.
The contest takes place Sunday, April 28th, at Great Basin Brewing Company’s “Taps and Tanks” (McCarran Blvd just South of Rock). Entrants do not have to be present, (it’s actually pretty serious, geeky, and boring to watch) but just have their entries delivered to “The Reno Homebrewer” (beer and winemaking supply shop), 2335 Dickerson Rd., Reno, NV, between April 13th and April 20th. A $5 fee per entry is all it costs.
For further information contact “The Reno Homebrewer” at 775-329-ALES (2537) (renohomebrewer.com), or Great Basin Brewing Company, at 775-355-7711(greatbasinbrewingco.com).
