We have a winner!! 🏆 The final round of our Last Brewer Standing competition pitted Evan Bonsell and Kieth Caines against each other, and they were instructed to brew a Maibock. The final judging took place at the May Club Meeting, using a blind judging panel to select the winner. This was a long, fun ride that began last summer with 32 brewers, and we can finally announce that…
Kieth Caines has been crowned the Last Brewer Standing!!
Big thanks to Clayton Hoy and Rob Towle for organizing this fun competition! Thanks to their tireless efforts it was an outstanding success. We’re already looking forward to Last Brewer Standing #2!
Special thank yous go out to all our Last Brewer Standing sponsors!
