The Debrief on the Competition:
Certified BJCP judges along with local professional brewers will be at awards ceremony and block party to weigh in and announce the Wort War 1 Champion on November 11th.

Our unique approach to a Homebrew Competition starts with each contestant picking up 5 gallons of pre-made wort from the NXNW Brewery-Slaughter location. The finished product is only limited to the contestant’s creativity, knowledge and skill with the end goal of producing a quality brew unique to that individual. The winning recipe will be brewed and served at both NXNW locations and entered into the Great American Beer Festival in 2018.

Entries will be judged by a panel of BJCP certified judges and local professional brewers
Chance to brew your recipe on NXNW’s 15 BBL copper brewhouse
Winner will be entered into GABF 2018
