RALEIGH: Homebrew competition

Posted by Pop The Cap on March 20th, 2007

The CARBOY homebrew competition is almost upon us (happening Saturday, March 24), and I want to make sure all on this list are invited to enter beers and volunteer as judges or stewards. Please sign up on the website. Registration has begun and runs through 3/17. We need all the local judges and stewards that we can get!

If you haven’t been involved in a competition before, they are interesting, fun and semi-educational. History would say we should expect about 300 entries.

RALEIGH: Big Boss Cask Ale

Posted by Pop The Cap on March 20th, 2007

From the Big Boss (formerly Edenton) Brewery:

Alright, so here’s the deal. We’ve got this beer called the Horniblows Tavern. It’s an English ale. Some of you may be familiar with it. So about a month ago we decided to put it in a cask with some hops and some other things. And then we let it sit. Haven’t touched it, just stared at it a lot. Well we think it’s time to drink it now,and we we’re hoping to get a little help. So I was wondering,is there anyone out there willing to help us drink this beer? If so, be at the tavern on Thursday. We’re tapping the cask promptly at 6 p.m., so be here, ready to drink. For those of you who came out for the last one, you know how quick the cask will kick. 1 hour, 15 mins for the last one, if i’m not mistaken! So come out this Thursday and get yourself some real ale! I’ll see you then!
