Hey beer lovers, slather that sunscreen on and come join The Philadelphia Homebrew Club for its Summer Sizzle. With summer in full heat, the club will be setting up shop to provide an afternoon of outdoor beer tasting that is sure to quench everyone’s thirst. On hand will be free unlimited samples of some of the most refreshing homebrews in the city, along with local brewery favorites and some homemade, non-alcoholic refreshments.
For all you parents, there’s no need to call a sitter, this is a family-friendly event! Complete with live music, a Bouncy Castle for the kids, and Dunk Tank for those who want to test their skills.
The entry fee will get you a commemorative PHBC tasting glass and endless supply of homebrewed samples to fill it. Be sure to sign up early and save yourself some cash, the price is $20 in advance and $25 at the door. You will also receive $5 in food coupons to spend as you wish at our food truck partners.
During the event certified judges will be tasting beers for the homebrew competition, with categories for IPA, Pale Ale, Kölsch, and Saison. The winners will be announced during the festivities and all are welcome to enter, just see the details below. In addition to the BJCP competition, all attendees will get a chance to vote on the beers served at the event to award the coveted Crowd Favorite honors.
