Battle Of The Brewers: Round One
From Focus On The Beer:
We are proud to introduce the first ever Battle of the Brewers competition in Colorado Springs. We have invited eight local breweries to compete against one another using randomly selected ingredients that we pulled out of a hat! We have used a bracket system so that one brewery is matched up against one other brewery, both producing a beer using the same two ingredients (such as molasses and peaches). The fun part comes when you, our lovely beery readers, will do a blind judging of the beers. March 31st will be Round 1, we will announce the winners of the public vote, announce the date for the next round, and select the random ingredients again right there at the bar for all to see!

Round one will be held at Brewer's Republic starting at 4pm with Bracket One. Bracket Two will start at 5pm.

$5 gets you a sample flight of all 8 beers.

Bracket One/4pm

Lone Tree vs Rock Bottom (Black Cherry, Clementine)
Rockyard vs Black Fox (Molasses, Peaches)

Bracket Two/5pm

Phantom Canyon vs Kevin Baity Kraft Beer (Black Tea, Strawberry)
Shamrock vs Pikes Peak (Raspberry, Pumpkin)

Brewer's Republic is at 112 N Nevada in Colorado Springs.
