More info on the Iron Brewer Competition:

We will be releasing the secret ingredient for our 2nd Iron Homebrew contest which will take place in the Fall! We had a great response last time and hope to make the event even bigger and better this year. Swing by today to grab the secret ingredient.We will have a collab beer on tap made with Terry and the winner of last year’s competition.

The Iron Homebrew competition is an event that puts homebrewers in a head to head competition against Terry Hawbaker, the brewer at our brewery, Cabinet Artisanal Brewhouse. There are no guidelines except to use the secret ingredient in the beer, and it will be judged based upon how it is used.
