All entries must be in BEFORE JULY 8TH. If you want to bring in your clone on July 8th, you must contact me. That’s one more week than previously announced and still over 5 weeks away, which, for some of you, should be just enough time to brew something if you get on it immediately. Only one bottle (any size, unlabeled) is required for entry. You can enter more than one if they are different recipes. When you drop off your bottle, it will be labelled with a number.
David will be judging the competition at Barley’s Homebrewing Supplies on Monday July 8th at 7:00PM. All entrants are invited to this private event. Feel free to bring an extra bottles of your clone (Please don’t bring other homebrew or other beer) to the event to share and discuss with other entrants while the merciless judging takes place. If you would like to partake in this event, please bring your own tasting glass and, of course, please don’t drink and drive. David will announce a winner at the end of the night.
Local Nano-brewery, Powell Street Craft Brewery, has only been around since late 2012 but they’re already making waves. Their flagship beer, Old Jalopy Pale Ale, just won Gold for North American Style Pale Ale (Bitter) from the 11th Annual Canadian Brewing awards. Not only that, but it beat out all other beers to claim the esteemed title of Beer of the Year!
If you choose to accept it, is to clone this beer as best you can. According to their website, Old Jalopy is:
A twist on a traditional English Pale Ale. Caramel and English Pale malts were combined with the floral, citrus, and grapefruit notes of the North American hop, giving this ale a very distinct sensory profile. ABV: 5.5%, IBU 40
Just cryptic enough to make this competition even more interesting. Still not intrigued? Powell Street Brewmaster, himself, David Bowkett, will be judging your beer in order to determine the winner.
Start brewing now! The deadline for entering your beer in the competition will be June 30th. The date and details of the judging will be announced later.
Other than making some delicious beer? The winner gets to help David brew the next batch of ale at the Powell Street brewery!
