QBC logoCongratulations to Tyler McSorley, winner of our first Quarterly Brewing Challenge! Tyler’s Middle Earth won using the White Labs 022 Essex Ale yeast in the only Golden Ale to be submitted to the competition.

Many thanks to our volunteer judges from the Wort Processor’s BJCP Study Group for their time and tasting acumen. And even more to our primary sponsor, John john-harvard_logoHarvard’s Brewery & Ale House. They will be brewing a version of the winning beer at their Framingham location and then trucking it to their Cambridge location in Harvard Square for the celebratory event!

Our next QBC is coming up soon! Try your hand at a “Continental Pale Ale” or brew a regular Pale Ale or IPA using Massachusetts-grown Cascade hops (purchased at your local Homebrew Emporium). We’ll get the full information up on a competition website soon!
