The TC Ale Trail, MI Local Hops, Drink My Brewcast and Create TC are happy to announce the Inaugural Traverse City Stout Challenge!
The STOUT challenge is a local competition between 10 Traverse City area breweries. Each brewery will produce their “Best STOUT” and submit it for the event. 200 beer lovers will have the opportunity to get tickets and be a judge and choose their favorite brew. All tasting will be blind. Ticket holders will know the description of the beer, ABV, and other facts, but the brewery will remain confidential. At 10pm an awards ceremony will take place. The winning brewery will take home a trophy and the privilege of saying their brewery has “The Best STOUT in the Traverse City area!”
Troy Daily, organizer of the event is excited about the event “I have produced the IPA Challenge for the past two years and it has been a great success. With this success and overwhelming feedback from attendees, the Stout Challenge was born. It's a great way to get all of the area breweries together during a usual slower month of the year."
The 10 Traverse City area breweries that are participating in the event include; The Filling Station Microbrewery, The Workshop Brewery, Brewery Ferment, Old Mission Beer Co.(at Jolly Pumpkin), Brewery Terra Firma, Right Brain Brewery, Lake Ann Brewing Company, Hop Lot Brewing and Short's Brewing Company. Rare Bird Brewpub has a limiting license and will be collaborating with The Filling Station to brew a STOUT just for the event.
Unique to this event, there will be VIP tickets available. This will guarantee you a seat, table service, snacks and other amenities. Limited seats are available!
