Benefiting Kymari House
The dust has settled, and Kymari House’s third annual Battle of the Brews is over. HHH was lucky enough to be able to lend his judicial skills to the judging in this epic conflict of home brewer skills.
Kymari House sold out the event this year, and was able to raise over $23,000 for their charity. That’s gonna help them to help a lot of families.
There were more things going on in this event than I could keep up with since I was involved in it, so I don’t have a lot to report. The Missus was on hand to take pictures fortunately, so this article will be heavy on the pictures this time.
I’d like to mention some of the food that was there:
1) Deezie’s Food Truck
2) Muay Thai Tacos Food Truck
3) Buttermilk Sky Pie Factory
Finally, here’s the list of home brewers that participated:
1) Cedar Glade Brews
2) Mos Alesley Brewing
3) Panther Creek Brews
4) Vitruvian Artisan Ales
5) The Emerald Abbey
6) Mid-State Brewsters
7) The Green Dragon Pub and Brewery
8) Smackdab Brewing
9) Steel Barrel/Mantra
Every one of them was a winner in my mind, but each judge had to pick one favorite. Mine was a white chocolate cream ale by The Emerald Abbey. I picked them because this was a brew that ordinarily I would not have picked, but out of left field it surprised me. I am friends with nearly every brewer here, and knew that I would love anything they put out. This ale surprised me by making me like something I normally wouldn’t. Well done Emerald Abbey.
That’s my story for this event and I’m sticking to it. Enjoy the pictures!
