The Ultimate Brewer 3
Tampa Bay Beer Week presents The Ultimate Brewer 3, the official kickoff to TBBW 2018! This brewing challenge tests brewer's skill, creativity and probably their nerves. Pairs of unusual ingredients were randomly drawn and 25 participating breweries chose the beer style that best demonstrates those ingredients. Garlic, Wasabi, or Hazelnut might test a brewer's creativity, but combine one of those with pineapple, coriander, or chives and now you have quite the challenge. These ingredients are kept secret and the beers are tasted blind on March 2nd 7-10pm. The winner will be chosen between a balance of two votes: Consumer Choice as chosen by you, and the Pro Panel chosen by the participating brewers. The brewery with the most votes wins The Ultimate Brewer 2018, will have their name etched on the trophy, and will be presented with the opportunity to brew the official beer of TBBW 2019. The trophy currently resides at Brew Bus Brewing, two-time champion and brewer of this year's official beer of TBBW 2018. Will they be champions yet again? You decide.
Ticket price includes a commemorative sampling glass, samples of each of the 25 contestants, and a 16oz Brew Bus beer (you know, the kind without the garlic).
