Bent River Brewing Company and the Dwyer & Michaels Morning Show are hosting a huge and unique homebrewing competition in the Quad Cities.

We're inviting 30 home brewers to showcase their brews and compete to be the Quad Cities Brewmaster. This event is limited to 300, 21+ adults, and will be FREE. Only the first 300 people will receive a taster glass, homebrew samples, and be able to cast their vote for their favorite brewer. Anyone in line after the 300 capacity point will not be able to participate.

So far we have 22 brewers registered from all over the region including Quad Cities, Cedar Rapids, Peoria, Chicago, and St. Louis. Registration is still open and homebrewers can email for more information on registering.

The TOP TWO voted brewers will both get to formulate a recipe with a Bent River brewer and brew on their pilot system. Both of these beers will be kegged and bottled in 22 oz bomber bottles. They will be released at Bent River at the same time at another event with a second head to head people’s choice vote.

Winners will get to help name and design the label for their beer. They will get full credit as the brewer of their beer on the label! The grand prize winner will also have the opportunity to talk about their beer on the Dwyer & Michaels show.

The grand prize winner will get to brew their recipe on the production scale brewing system at Bent River. This beer will then be kegged and distributed wherever Bent River beer is available.
