18th Annual Battle of the Brews and Craft Cup

We are no longer taking any more names. Please make sure you can drop off your beer for sampling during the 2 times listed or email if you have anymore questions. Thanks

The Sonoma Beerocrats Homebrew Club has been cordially invited to attend and pour our own homebrews at the Battle of the Brews and the Craft Cup event. This is an opportunity for us to reach out to the public, teach and show people what we are all about and all for a good cause! We are able to pour up to seven homebrewed beers at this event. The Brewer must also present to talk about his/her beer. If you would like to be involved in this great event and have a beer (at least 5 gallons) that you are proud of and would like to share please RSVP. Presenters will get in free to the Craft Cup.

Check out the link for other information http://battleofthebrews.com/craft_cup.php

Here is what we will need:

1) Name of Brewer (by 3/14)
2) Name of Beer Style (by 3/14)
3) Sample of beer in a 12oz bottle dropped off at either the Iron Brewer Judging Event on Saturday, the 22nd or on Sunday, the 23rd at the Beverage People. If you drop at the Beverage People it has to be Sunday, the 23rd, between 9am and 1pm.

4) Each brewer of 5 gallons will get 1 free ticket to the Battle of the Brews and the Craft Cup event.  Your beer will help raise money for charity and showcase the fine beer from the Sonoma Beerocrats.

We had a great showing at the Black and White Beer Ball. I think we stood toe to toe to any other brewer in attendance. I look forward to many more events like this during the year.

Cheers
Ron

    Great event everyone. I had many people tell me that they favored our beer over the commercial breweries. Very fun and I can't wait until next year.

    I have three beers for contention an Irish Red Ale, a Porter and a wet hop IPA. I will drop off a sample of each and let you decide which is worthy. So we can only drop off samples at the Beverage people on Sunday the 23rd and not before?

      Hi Ron - Life got in the way and I didn't get a chance to brew the batch I was planning to enter, and my current batch is not worthy, so I'll have to back out. Next year!

      Thanks for the update Noelle, always next time! :)

    If you RSVP for this event that means you intend on donating 5 gallons of kegged beer for this event. You will receive 1 ticket to the Battle of the Brews and the Craft Cup event. Please follow the instructions above and email me if you have any questions.

    March 12, 2014

    • Ron S.

      Our club has a 5 tap Jockey box. If you would like to donate up to 5 gallons of kegged beer just follow the instructions in my comment below. I need the list to hand to the organizers by this Friday. If Mike Kelly brings his Jockey box we will have a total of 7 taps.
