Second Annual Midwest Brewers Brawl, July 27, 2014

July 19 2014 - 7:11 PM

Well, isn’t this quite the neat experience.  The Northwest Indiana Leaders Young Professional Network is hosting its second annual Brewers Brawl at the Pavilion in Washington Park in Michigan City, Indiana, on Sunday, July 27, 2014, beginning at 2:00 p.m.   Beautiful Lake Michigan will provide the backdrop for this beer-centric soiree which will feature regional beers from  northwest Indiana.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a brawl if there wasn’t  a little competition, and the main event will be a beer-judging contest among the regional brewers.  Judges will determine which brewer makes the best beer across several different categories, including the best stout, the best IPA, etc.  To spice things up even further (or, to really get things brewing – sorry), yours truly will be one of the judges for these sure-to-be delectable and intriguing beers.  I hope they provide  judges with Olympics-styled numbered placards.  I’ve always wanted to hold up a “9.5”, or some number, at a contest, and this might be my only opportunity, given that Sochi never reached out to me about judging.

Music and food will also be featured at the Brawl. Tickets for both VIP and general admission are still available, and you can obtain them at the link provided above.  I hope to see you there.  Who says that judging is no fun?
