Another great announcement this week: the MontreAlers Homebrew Club announces the Christopher Needelman Memorial IronAler 2023 competition, which will take place on February 4, 2023.
Twenty teams of up to 4 brewers (all must be MontreAlers members in good standing – click here to become a member) will compete to showcase their beer brewed from a mystery box of ingredients given to them at the end of November. Details of the rules can be found here.
Beers will be judged by a panel of homebrewers and experienced judges. The public will also participate in judging the beers in the competition.
So get your team ready! And watch the forum: registration will open this Sunday, November 13, at 7:00 am.

WHAT IS IRONALER?
This fun and creative competition format has become very popular in recent years. If you’re not familiar with it, each contestant or team is supplied with a box of the same ingredients and given a fixed amount of time to brew 20 litres of any style of beer they like – using those ingredients and those only!
It all culminates in an awards night, when the brewers present and promote their beer, and then everyone (official judges and the general public) votes on their favorite. The winners are awarded some great prizes from our generous sponsors!
Without great sponsors this competition would not exist. We would like to thank our sponsors for their generosity! This year we have the biggest mystery box yet!
