Battle of the Brews – Summer ’17




Announcing Lynchpin Beer Company’s
Battle of the Brews – Summer ’17

Thursday, August 17, 2017 in The Biergarten
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

For nine years Lynchpin Beer Company’s Head Brewer Scott Hayes worked The Laundry line by day and homebrewed by night. As a homebrewer, Scott appreciated opportunities to get his beers into the hands of other craft beer lovers. Battle of the Brews was inspired by Scott’s homebrewing roots and his interest in giving other homebrewers the chance to have their creative brews tasted and appraised.

During Battle of the Brews – Summer ’17, your beer will be sampled and judged by our ticket holders and Lynchpin representatives. The winner will receive a terrific prize pack and have the option to have their recipe brewed on Lynchpin Beer Company’s single barrel brewing system by Head Brewer Scott Hayes. A barrel of the finished product will be featured on draft at The Laundry.

So we can provide a nice variety of recipes for our ticket holders to sample on August 17, we have a simple application for homebrewers who want to participate. Applications for Battle of the Brews – Summer ’17 must be received by June 15, 2017. Due to space in our Biergarten, we will limit the number of brewers to 15.
