Reinheitsrevolt! Homebrewing Contest

Reinheitsrevolt_Poster_Proof-1Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace Presents


Homebrewing Competition

During Madison Craft Beer Week 2014 Tex Tubb’s went out on a limb and collaborated with five local breweries to produce six amazing brews using unique ingredients once forbidden by the German Purity Law known as Reinheitsgebot. Tex Tubb’s is now challenging the Greater-Madison Homebrewing Community to brew with two or more of the ingredients we used in our 2014 brews.

Judges will choose a Best-in-Show entry based on adherence to base style and proper incorporation of one or more of the special ingredients. The Best-in-Show winner will then go on to assist Next Door Brewing Company Lead Brewer Bryan Kreiter in brewing a three barrel batch of the winning beer.

The winning beer will be released at Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace Friday May 1st during Madison Craft Beer Week 2015 and subsequently on tap at Next Door Brewing Company while supplies last.

Beer Tasting with Vintage Brewing Co

This video is from a beer tasting I hosted at Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace featuring Vintage Brewing Company. Brewmaster Scott Manning hung out all afternoon and shared his awesome beers with our customers and folks in the neighborhood. I think Scott makes some of the best beers in Madison, WI and would recommend a stop at the brewery to anyone passing through town.

His Flur de Lune Hibiscus Saison inspired me to experiment with hibiscus in my own brewing. I wound up making an interesting Raspberry-Hibiscus Stout that I will probably never brew again. Sometimes it is best to leave these things to experts like Scott.
