Iron Brewer Challenge Tasting

Iron Brewer Challenge Tasting

Iron Brewer.jpg

Join us to taste and judge the beers and other fermented beverages brewed for our Iron Brewer Challenge. This annual brewing challenge requires club members draw ingredients at random at our Annual Holiday Party. Homebrewers must then brew a fermented drink (e.g. beer, mead, kombucha, etc.) which highlights this ingredient while not completely overwhelming the beverage and specific style characteristics.

This year's tasting will feature up to 17 different fermented drinks (a majority will likely be beer) brewed with a variety of ingredients including items like cayenne, hazelnut, mango, ginger, black truffles, and more!

Iron Brewers should bring their beer or other fermented drink paired with a food dish that also features their special ingredient. For those who did not brew for the challenge, you are still welcome! Please bring your choice of food dish and some fermented drinks to share (homebrewed or commercial).

This event is always a lot of fun and a great opportunity to try strange and interesting beers, meads, and kombucha! There will also be some nominal prizes for the top Iron Brewers, including the coveted Iron Brewer Trophy Mash Paddle.

All are welcome! So if you brewed for Iron Brewer, but aren't a club member yet, no worries, please still come! Feel free to bring any curious friends as well!

Event will be held at member Aaron Franzmann's home in Bozeman. Directions will be emailed to members via our club email list the week before the event. If you aren't on that email list, shoot us an email at info@bridgerbrewcrew.org and we'll get you the details.

Please RSVP so our hosts know how many people to expect!

WONDERING WHY THAT BATCH OF BEER WENT BAD?

HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO DUMP A HOMEBREW BECAUSE IT TASTED LIKE SWILL? 

NO CLUE WHAT WENT WRONG? WELL, HAVE NO FEAR. BRIDGER BREW CREW IS HERE TO HELP!

Join us for a sensory analysis experience of 6 of the most common off-flavors which occur in beer brewing. We will discuss causes and possible solutions to prevent these off flavors from occurring.  

The flavor standards we will be using come from the Siebel Institute, the US's premier brewing school in Chicago, IL. They include the following 6 essential off flavors every brewer should know:

  1. Contamination / Infection
  2. DMS (aka dimethyl sulfide)
  3. Diacetyl (that nasty buttery taste)
  4. Isovaleric acid (think cheesy, old hops, or sweaty socks)
  5. Papery (aka oxidation)
  6. Hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs, ew!)

Location info for the event will be emailed out to members closer time to the event. 

ADMISSION IS FREE FOR DUES-PAYING MEMBERS. $10 FOR NON-MEMBERS.

LEARN HOW TO JOIN HERE!

For our August meetup, our homebrew club will be visiting local Bozeman hop grower, Crooked Yard Hops. We'll kick the meeting off with a short discussion and then the Crooked Yard crew will teach us about what goes into growing this vital beer ingredient as well as take us on a tour of one of their hops fields. Afterward, stick around to try members' latest homebrews and talk with other zymurgists and hop enthusiasts!

NOTE:  As always, our regular meetings are free and open to the public so feel to bring any family or friends who might also be interested in learning about the art of homebrewing! We just ask you be respectful of our host and their property as we are meeting at a private property and not a public space.
