Oct. 7th -Central Florida Top Brewer

October 7th- Lake Concord Park Casselberry

Central Florida Top Brewer is a Beer Fest unlike any other. It is designed to showcase the talents and creativity of our local Florida breweries. 


In the past few years, Central Florida breweries have grown exponentially and proven there is a lot of talent here in our own back yard. The beer festival will be a take on a"Top Chef" style competition. Brewers will draw one grain, one hop and two miscellaneous ingredients. Brewers must brew a beer that includes all ingredients that were drawn.

 
Along with their competition beer, breweries will be bringing along some of their favorite and special beers to share with you. Come out and see what the best of Central Florida has to offer!  

The Competition

On July 24th, over 20 of Central Florida’s best breweries descended upon Bowigens Beer Company to participate in the inaugural drawing for Central Florida Top Brewer. 


Through four rounds, brewers drew a list of ingredients consisting of one hop, one malt and two specialty ingredients. The rules are simple; you must brew a beer that includes all four ingredients. There are no other limitations on style, process or ingredients. The combinations ranged from very complimentary to extremely challenging. At the end of the day, each brewer walked away with their list, tasked to brew a great beer with what was thrown at them. 


This will be a beer festival unlike any other. A panel of judges as well as YOU, the crowd, will determine the title of Top Brewer. Upon entry, you will receive three tokens to vote for your favorite beers.  Along with their competition beers, breweries will be bringing along their favorites, as well as some special beers to share with you.  This is one beer festival you won’t want to miss!
