Local 484 Home Brew Competition (Overview)

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

The “Local 484 Home Brew Challenge,” is a new event we have added to this Convention. This event will be a competition of your own home brewed beer. The cost of the event will be $15 for the competitors only, to help cover the cost of awards. Refreshments will be available during the event. This event will be held in the convention center (room TBD). The event starts at 5:30 pm with a preliminary round of judging and the final round of judging will start at 6:30 pm. There will be a panel of “celebrity” judges for the preliminary round, and for the final round of judging, our very own Brew Masters from Central Waters Brewing Co.,  District 1 Brewing Co., Backcountry Brewery, other brew masters (TBD) from our local breweries. The winning “Home Brew” will take the Home Brew trophy home! But wait, there’s more…The winning brew will be brewed by Central Waters Brewing Company. You will be invited to come to Central Waters brew house and spend the day with the Brew Masters and staff brewing your winning beer. Please bring your home brew recipe to the competition. Central Waters will have your brew on tap in their tap house. The winner will have to find an establishment in your community to purchase your winning brew to sell, and have the proceeds donated back to your Local’s charity.

Do you have what it takes to compete? If you, a team from your local, or a team from your Caucus group thinks you have what it takes to win this competition please submit your name to Jason Pettis at convention@stevenspointfirefighters.org for more information. Team space will be limited, so sign up early to guarantee your spot. This event promises to be a fun relaxing way to spend the last evening of convention. Rules and beer judging forms will be finalized within the next few months.

The event should be finished by 8:00pm, which will give you plenty of time to explore all that Stevens Point has to offer.
