BrewRiot 2014Ahhhh – the event that kicked us into high-gear.

2104 was the first year we entered BrewRiot, having only attended the year before. Before this, we had only entered 1 other competition – Deep Ellum’s Labor of Love in 2013 – where we had a pretty good crowd response to our beer.

Going into the event, we had no expectations whatsoever. All we wanted was some formal feedback on our beer to help guide the refinement of our recipes.

In fact, it was the first time we ever brewed our Streets Run Red Ale, and the first time we added the lavender to our Baby I Like It Raw Wheat Ale.

And man, were we ever surprised! We took 3rd Overall in American Ales for Streets Run Red (and 2nd in the Amber Ales category), and the Lavender Wheat took 3rd in Wheat Ales.

ZennieBut better yet, there was a palpable buzz around our beers, and person after person kept coming up to our booth saying “We have to try this lavender wheat” or “My friend told me your Red Ale is so good!” It was really rewarding to see and hear all these beer fans loving our brews.

BrewRiot 2015 is just around the corner on May 17th – not like we’re counting down the days or anything. We’re looking forward to another great showing. Get your tickets here. If you come, stop by our booth for a few brews and say hi!
