2nd Annual Boards & Brews Homebrew Competition
People Working Cooperatively (PWC) and the Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom are raising a glass to collaboration, homebrews and cornhole – all to support a great cause with the second annual Boards & Brews Homebrew Competition.
PWC’s Emerging Leaders Board and the Taproom are teaming up for the second year in a row to invite homebrewers of Greater Cincinnati to brew their best for a chance to have their beer made and released at the Taproom during the Boards & Brews cornhole tournament this summer. The deadline for teams to register is March 12.
“Last year’s Boards & Brews success paved the way for the event to return for a second year,” said PWC President Jock Pitts. “This collaboration between the Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom and PWC’s Emerging Leaders Board – a group of talented young professionals and emerging community leaders – is a great way to engage the community and raise awareness for the work PWC does in the region to provide critical home repair and mobility modification services to our neighbors in need.”
Registration is $150 per beer entry and includes a $50 stipend for brewing ingredients, as well as entry for up to five team members to the competition kickoff event on March 12 at the Taproom (1727 Logan St., Cincinnati). The kickoff event provides the opportunity for entrants to meet with Sam Adam’s Head Brewer Chris Siegman and tour the Taproom brewery facilities.
“Through this unique collaboration with PWC, we are able to support and applaud innovation in the brewing world while doing some good in the community,” said Keith McEly, Sam Adams Cincinnati Taproom General Manager. “We look forward to another year of continuing to celebrate the region’s vibrant brewing culture, encouraging local homebrewers and to providing meaningful support for those in the community that need it.”
Registration for the Boards & Brews Homebrew Competition is open through March 12 and can be completed online at http://www.pwchomerepairs.org/brew. Teams are allowed to submit more than one entry but must pay the registration fee for each entry. Cincinnati Malt Infusers certified judges will choose the winning homebrew, and the team will brew their recipe with Head Brewer Chris Siegman on-site at the Taproom for release at the Boards & Brews cornhole tournament to be held Aug. 6.
All proceeds from the Boards & Brews Homebrew Competition benefit the programs and mission of People Working Cooperatively. To learn more about People Working Cooperatively, or to find out who qualifies for services, visit pwchomerepairs.org or call (513) 351-7921.
