Tippybrew 2017

On April 29th, the Tippecanoe Homebrewers’ Circle held their 1st BJCP certified competition.  We had 127 paid entries, with over 87 entrants, judges, stewards and organizers participating.

The grand prize (a Blichmann Engineering Hellfire burner donated by John Blichmann himself) was won by Jarrod Doucette of THC, with a wide selection of Indiana and national homebrewer clubs and homebrewers winning or placing in 14 judging categories *(full results can be seen here).  The judging was overseen by Nationally ranked judge Linda Swihart, with Jason Cooke leading the charge for stewarding.  Several other THC members helped run the event, and it was a great occasion for the club to show our can do spirit in pulling it off.

We also had a lot of help from our sponsors, including Blichmann Engineering, Great Fermentations, Final Gravity Homebrew Supply, Lafayette Brewing Company, People’s Brewing Company, The Pint, and Village Bottle Shoppe. Thanks to all who assisted in making this a great event.

We plan for this to be an annual event, and will post details for Tippybrew 2018 on this site in the future.

Opportunity for volunteers for Bloomington Brewfest 2014

BIG (Brewer’s of Indiana Guild) needs volunteers for the 2014 Bloomington Brewfest on April 12th.  Here is the invite letter I was asked to share:

Hey folks

 If you’re getting this, then you’re on our list to volunteer for the Bloomington Craft Beer Fest.  We’re still working out assignments and logistics, but I have a favor to ask.

 Call your friends!

 Right now, we still need loads of hard-working beer lovers to help us out.  It’s perfectly OK if they’ve never volunteered before.  We’ll even do our best to pair you up to work together.

 Thanks a million!
