CINCINNATI (Feb. 23, 2022) – The People Working Cooperatively (PWC) Emerging Leaders Board and the Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom invite homebrewers of Greater Cincinnati to brew their best for a good cause during the first annual Boards & Brews Homebrew Competition. Teams are encouraged to register by March 13 to compete for a chance to have their beer brewed and released at the Taproom during the Boards & Brews main event this summer.
“The PWC Emerging Leaders Board is a group of dynamic individuals that are dedicated to helping others in the community,” said PWC President Jock Pitts. “We are excited to collaborate with Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom for the inaugural Homebrew Competition as an innovative way to engage the community and grow the awareness of PWC’s mission to provide critical home repair and modification services to neighbors in need.”
Registration is $150 per beer entry and includes a $50 stipend for brewing ingredients, as well as entry for up to five team members to the kickoff event on March 13 at the Taproom (1727 Logan St., Cincinnati). Attendees of the kickoff event will have the opportunity to meet with Sam Adam’s Head Brewer Chris Siegman and tour the Taproom brewery facilities.
“Cincinnati boasts a vibrant brewing culture – one that we happily support through unique collaborations, like this one with our friends at PWC,” Sam Adams Cincinnati Taproom General Manager Keith McEly said. “This homebrew competition is the perfect way for us to celebrate our city’s love of innovative beer while providing meaningful help to the community.”
Registration for the Homebrew Competition is open through March 13 and can be completed online at http://www.pwchomerepairs.org/brew. Teams are allowed to submit more than one entry but must pay the registration fee for each. The winning homebrew team will brew their recipe with Head Brewer Chris Siegman on-site at the Taproom for release at the Boards & Brews main event to be held Aug. 7.
