Both experienced and aspiring home brewers as well as beer aficionados will gather at NoDa Brewing Company (2229 N. Davidson St.) on Saturday, April 27 for its inaugural Top of the Hop Pro-Am Competition.
(Sure, it's another NoDa Brewing event, but what can we say? They're doing good stuff over there.)
Happening from noon to 10 p.m., Top of the Hop is a home brewers competition. The Best in Show winning beer will be recreated with NoDa Brewing's brewery system and entered into the Great American Beer Festival Pro-Am Competition.
Other awards will be given to:
- King or Queen of Wort
- Steward's Choice
- Most Creative Recipe
- Most Creative Name
- Most Creative Ingredient
Members of Carolina Brewmasters, the Cabarrus Homebrewers Society (Cabrew), and the Iredell Brewers United (IBU) will act as judges and hosts for the event.
This is a great educational opportunity for both aspiring and seasoned homebrewers because of the wealth of homebrewing knowledge that will be shared during the event. Entrance into the competition is currently closed with over 90 brews entered, but the public is welcome to attend.
