Tonight at the Beveridge Place Pub… Two brewers, one ingredient, and only one rule. You be the judge at the first-ever Beveridge Place Iron Brewer competition. The fun gets started at 7:00.
Television’s Iron Chef matches two world-class chefs against each other in a battle royal of cooking skills. Using the theme ingredient, the two chef prepare a series of dishes for a panel of expert judges. The winner is crowned the Iron Chef; the loser humbly backs away in disgrace. That’s all great, but it has nothing to do with beer. Well, the folks at the Beveridge Place Pub decided to take the same basic format and turn it into a battle of two skilled brewers.
Tonight will feature a face-off between brewer Pat Ringe (Diamond Knot Brewing) and brewer Matt McClung (Schooner Exact Brewing). The theme ingredient for this battle is orange. The only other stipulation is that the beer cannot be a Witbier. The crowd will vote for the beer that they prefer and the winner will be crowned the Iron Brewer.
