Specialty Brewer Zeke Bogan and homebrew competition winner Nick Rodammer toast the first pint of Manden Med Leen. Cheers and congrats Nick! His Black IPA is now available on tap at the Eccentric Cafe (while supplies last).
I hope this shows that you don’t have to have been homebrewing for years to make good beer. Anyone who is passionate about brewing and takes the time to learn about the art and science of the craft can apply what they learn and brew beer they are proud to share with others. — We’re tapping the winning beer from our 3rd Annual Homebrew Competition at the Eccentric Cafe tomorrow at 3 p.m. Read more about the winner and his beer on the Bell’s Blog.
