The Best of the Bay 2015 is happening this weekend and we’re going to find out who’s making the best homebrew in the Northwest! As we’ve done every year, we’ll be following up the competition with a combination Award Ceremony and Homebrew Festival and all members of the Bellingham homebrewing community are invited. We’ll be holding it again in Boundary Bay’s Annex Garden on the corner of Railroad Ave and E Maple St and the weather forecast is looking fantastic! This year’s event will be Sunday, August 2 (day after the judging) from 11am to 3pm.
In addition to announcing winners and handing out coveted bung awards, BHG members will be serving homebrew and you’re welcome to bring a jockey box and keg if you’d like to share as well. We’ll also be having people vote on their favorite beers and awarding People’s Choice awards towards the end. There will also be non-alcoholic options and kids’ activities, so bring the whole family. The event and homebrew are all free, but this does also serve as a fundraiser for the club, so please consider bringing a few bucks to purchase a commemorative taster glass, T-shirt, and/or raffle tickets. There will also be food available to purchase.
Whether you entered the competition or not, this is a great opportunity to support the club and congratulate the homebrewers that manage to brew beer good enough to take home the coveted gold, silver, and bronze bungs! We hope to see you Sunday!
