#WINNING – Brew Your Cask Off Champion Lineup and Photos

From the Dirty Sanchez and Little Richard Simmons, to Tebow’s Tears and Tea Bags, this year’s fest definitely wasn’t short on tasty brews…or pun-tastic names for that matter! In its 3rd year running, Brew Your Cask Off was another sell-out shindig hosting nearly 2,500 guests with more than 120 casks on tap. Most of those delicious, a few not-so-much, but one thing was for sure good times were flowin’ on tap all night long.


A quick round up of the evening’s winners for those who couldn’t make it (or had too many samples and they can’t quite remember):


1st Place – Cask #62, “Nuttin’ Butter” from Charleston Beer Exchange, a brown ale with peanut butter, peanut butter extract, raisins, Concord grape juice and lactose – a beer that is as close to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as possible.


2nd place  – Cask #11, “Fred Juice” from Fred Bar, a hoppy pale ale with citrus fruits and apricots that’s aggressively dry-hopped with Cascade and Citra.


3rd place – Cask #12, “The Chubby Chocolate Bunny” from Taco Mac, a rich porter with marshmallow notes as well as a large chocolate presence.


People’s Choice Award – Cask #22 “The Elvis Peanut Butter Banana Porter” from Cypress Street Pint and Plate, their tribute to the King, a peanut butter banana porter!


We’ve updated our Flickr with photos of the event. Make sure to check em’ out and see if you can spot yourself…your friends…or even Elvis: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweetwaterbrew/sets/72157629212093016/


Thanks for coming out to raise a glass and drink your cask off. Looking forward to celebrating again soon at 420 Fest in April!
