Big shout out to the one and only Doug Finke – brewer extraordinaire – for sealing the deal on our Lincoln Lagers Big Brew Challenge contest. He took on 13 other brewers’ creations – all of which were brewed using the Ploughshare Brewing Co. Farm Boy base wort – and his bad-to-the-bone Honey Braggot dominated the competition!
He has since brewed his scale-up batch of Braggot with Matt Stinchfield – and they report that, after adding 36 Lbs. of Hickman, NE honey – it clocks in at a whopping 11.5% ABV.
Look for Doug’s Braggot on tap at Ploughshare Brewing Co. during the Sower’s Cup weekend! Cheers!
First, a big ol’ congratulations goes out to AHA Big Brew/Lincoln Lagers Challenge winner Paul Breitkreutz! Paul’s variation of the AHA Bucksnort Brown Ale will be brewed by Blue Blood Brewing Co.
The whole club will be invited to help Paul on brew day, so stay tuned for the date and time.
