Interesting concept, start sending in ideas! http://www.hopsandgrain.com/news/open-greenhouse-beer-recipe-contest/ Open Greenhouse Beer Recipe Contest OCT 30, 2012Do you often find yourself in the grocery store perusing the produce or spice rack and thinking “I bet that would taste great in beer”? Have you ever downed a delicious drink and thought “this would taste even better if it was beer”? Might you have visions of being a mad brewing scientist but lack the equipment or skills to fulfill your dream? Well look no further, for your friends at Hops and Grain have just the thing to make it all happen. Announcing the Open Greenhouse Beer Recipe contest, where you can “grow your own” in the friendly confines of our east Austin Brewery! Here’s how it works: 1) Submit up to 5 beer recipe ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org between now and Sunday November 4, 2012. Please include your name and email address so we can contact you if you win. Note: Include as much detail as possible, but minimally we need the base beer style (i.e. Brown Ale, IPA, Belgian Tripel) plus any additional ingredients (i.e. nutmeg, cherries, green tea, centennial hops, etc…). If you send us a recipe with things like saffron or civet coffee it probably won’t get chosen due to cost and well, someone else already did that! 2) We will choose the top 4 recipes and post them to the Hops & Grain facebook page where you can vote for your favorite. 3) The recipe with the most votes at the end of the voting period wins, and the creator will be invited to the brewery to participate in the brewing of their winning recipe on our Greenhousepilot brewing system. 4) The winning beer will be released in our tap room some time in December as one of the regularly rotating Greenhouse selections, and the winner can invite all of their friends and family to come try out their brew and brag about their concocting skills. We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with, so get crafting and good luck!
