2017 Brewers’ Cup Info:
In 2017 Reformation Brewery (Woodstock), Blue Tarp Brewing (Decatur), Second Self (Atlanta), Abbey of the Holy Goats (Roswell), Pontoon Brewing (Sandy Springs) and Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta) were able to participate, even though there was a beer festival that day and all of them were ramping up for the September 1st change in laws affecting breweries. (Hooray! You can now purchase beer directly from the breweries!) The event was also live-streamed online.
The evening started off with a learn-to-curl class, followed by a mini-tournament, with broomstacking (tailgating) and awards immediately after. The winning brewery received the Brewers’ Cup trophy and became the Atlanta Curling Club’s official beer of the 2017-2018 season. A cooler full of their beer (purchased at retail locations) has been available every week at broomstacking for people to try.
Everyone had a ton of fun and we crushed 5 cases of beer during broomstacking (per the recycle bin.)
