TRASH XXV Competition Awards Presentation Banquet

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 at 7pm - 11:30pm

Location: James Street Gastropub and Speakeasy - 422 Foreland St, Pittsburgh, PA 15212

This event is in the past.

Following the conclusion of judging and tallying of results from the TRASH XXV Homebrew Competition, please join us for a party and the announcment of the winners.  Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place of every flight as well as the Best of Show, Runner-up Best of Show, East End Sessionable Award, and Turtle Creek Award winners.  (Details of these awards are available on the competition web site.)  In addition to these opportunites to brew your recipe commercially if you win a major award, we are working on securing prize donations for the competition winners.

Dinner will be handled the same way we did last year: There will be no cover charge to attend.  James Street will provide a menu for attendees to order from at your expense.  The ballroom bar will be open to purchase beer by the glass. The food is tasty, so please plan to have your dinner here and buy a beer or two to thank James Street for graciously hosting us once again.

All leftover bottles from the competition (that is, every entry that did not earn a gold medal) will be available to open and sample.

Come on out, have a good time, cheer on your fellow brewers!
