El Paso Home Brewing Competition
The first annual Ale Paso Home Brewing Competition, an AHA/BJCP Sanctioned Competition, where brewers will compete for a chance to have their beer produced and distributed commercially carrying the Ale Paso Trademark Name and contain artwork from a locally featured artist each year. The El Paso competition is set to occur in April, and to be brewed at a Texas Facility.
Our judges are made up of professional beer judges, professional brewers, certified cicerones, as well as a few hand selected members of the local beer industry. These are the people that brew, buy, drink, talk, and live for craft beer. Brews are judged not only on style, but with a focus on commercial appeal and wow factor.
Two recipes will be considered each year and one finalists will be selected by the judges to brew a limited batch of their beer at the sponsoring Brewing Facility.
The winner of the 2017 Ale Paso Homebrew Challenge will be invited to brew a production sized batch of their winning beer sponsoring facility (while maintaining rights to their recipe). Their beer will be launched to the public during the week of the El Paso Beer Week and be may be featured at the Sun City Craft Beer Festival and most importantly will be available on tap at select bars and restaurants, as well as in kegs at local craft beer stores regionally.
