Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant is launching Brew with a Legend, a regional beer competition where homebrewers will vie for the opportunity to brew their signature recipe with craft beer pioneer and Iron Hill’s co-founder, Mark Edelson. Five winners will be chosen, one from each region in which Iron Hill operates, including Delaware, New Jersey, South Carolina, Central Pennsylvania and the Greater Philadelphia area. In keeping with Iron Hill’s tradition of community involvement, the winning beer will be available on tap with $1 per pint donated to the winner’s charity of choice as well as a dedicated Give 20, a fundraising evening where the selected nonprofits can earn 20% of food sales. In addition to bragging rights, winning homebrewers will receive a $500 Iron Hill gift card and a sixtel of their prize-winning beer.
Homebrewers must register online before December 20 and can find a comprehensive parameter of rules and regulations, as well as the registration link here. Entrants must submit four 12 oz. bottles for judging at designated regional locations starting on December 26 through January 8, 2020. Each homebrewer may submit up to three beer entries. Beers will be judged by a panel of Iron Hill regional brewers, Mark Edelson and celebrated craft beer industry guest judges. Regional judging will take place on January 11, 2020, where five finalists will be selected from each of the five regions. A final round of judging will take place on January 18, 2020. Winning beers will be brewed within the first few weeks of February in order to be on tap in early March 2020.
