The Brewerie Presents the Eighth Annual Brewer's Cup by Alex Bieler

Craft beer is a wonderful thing. There is a certain joy to discovering a delicious beverage from a small, relatively unknown brewery, but how exciting would it be to be able to sample various homemade beers? Now, it would be a bit creepy to just enter someone’s house and demand a pint, but thanks to the Brewerie, you can sample several servings of homemade suds in a place well known for pouring pints for the public.

The Eighth Annual Brewer’s Cup will play host to more than 20 different amateur beer makers Saturday, Feb. 28, promising locals a chance to try some new concoctions that can’t be found in stores or be ordered at your bar of choice. What’s more is that the competing home brewers could provide a variety of delights, with potential drinks running from aggressively hoppy India pale ales to creamy milk stouts. The only way you’ll know what drinks are up for grabs (and sips) is by heading to the Brewerie and tasting for yourself.

The Brewer’s Cup is more than just an opportunity to test out some low-profile drafts; you and other pint purveyors can vote on what brews you found the most delightful, resulting in “People’s Choice” awards for the top offerings. For just $20, you can treat yourself to an evening of new brews and endless possibilities. – Alex Bieler
