Iron Brewer Challenge Tasting

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 and we'll get you the details.

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