All – it is with great pride I share the most recent Braxton blog post regarding the current draft release of Blown Gasket. Many of you are familiar with this beer in it’s homebrew form. Hell, a large number of us have brewed our own versions of this beer with an enormous amount of success and even won medals with our own versions. This is yet another success for Dave and this beer. Congratulations Dave on seeing a beer that you developed full circle from homebrew to being professionally brewed and then put into a can!
In addition to congratulating Dave I wanted to share something that Braxton is doing for the homebrewing community at the release. From their release:
This Friday, along with the tapping of Blown Gasket, we’ll be giving away 50 Gasket Kits with all the ingredients (with the exception of the yeast) you need to brew a 6-gallon batch of Blown Gasket. These free Gasket Kits will be available beginning at 5pm while supplies last. They include all the malts, hops and directions necessary to brew in your own garage. Submit two bottles of your homebrew before Dec. 2nd and you could win the opportunity to be “Brewer For a Day” at Braxton!
So get down to Braxton on Friday, get a kit and brew it up to see if you can brew the best rendition of Blown Gasket! Also, don’t forget to show the love in return by having a pint or two. I hope to see many of you down there! BREW HARD!
