10:00 AM until 12:00 AM


2018 Wort Transformation Challenge ~ Sign Up Day
Again this year during American Craft Beer week we're celebrating the birthplace of America Craft beer - Homebrewing! As many of you already know our roots are in homebrewing, and this is already year 7th year for our little homebrew competition. Entry Fee: $15 Entry Limit: 2 per person ~ only 180 entries are available! What is the Wort Transformation Challenge? Our brewers brew up a special batch of wort, then each homebrewer brings in a container and takes 5 gallons of wort home. It is then the homebrewers job to add yeast and copious amounts of creativity to create a real brewers whim! This year's registration opens on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 Sign-Up Day Time Line -- 10 am, Doors Open, Once you arrive, you'll be given one number for each entry (up to 2) that you plan on purchasing. Once you get your number, you'll be able to sit down with your friends and have a beer or an early lunch while you wait for your number to be called. -- 11 am, you'll ONLY be able to register in person* at the brewpub, but only until Noon. We'll start calling numbers (just like in the airport) at 11 am. Come up and stand in a short line and we'll get you registered! *No phone entries will be taken, and you must be present to purchase your entries at the brewpub, we will not allow others to purchase your entry for you. -- 12:30, you'll ONLY be able to register on-line**. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2018-wort-transformation-challenge-registration-tickets-41848891160 **On-line service fees will apply. Remember, we've only got 180 entries, and this will fill up fast. 2018 WORT Style ~ Blonde Wort Wort Specs TBD Competition Categories; Traditional Pilsner or Blonde Ale Fruit & Spice Hoppy Experimental Once you've registered, you'll be assigned a 'Wort Pick-up Appointment' on FRIDAY MARCH 9th, 2018 (between 3:30 and 7pm), then at your scheduled time you'll need to bring your carboy or brewing bucket into the brewery (6950 S 108th Street, La Vista) to pick up your wort.
