M.A.L.T. 2014

MALT 2014

Thanks to all the participants, the judges, the volunteers, and our sponsors!

The MontreAlers Homebrewing Club is happy to announce that their annual BJCP-sanctioned MontreAlers’ Ales and Lagers Throwdown (M.A.L.T.) homebrewing competition is July 12-13, 2014!

This year’s competition, part of the BrewerOfTheYear.com circuit, will be accepting all lagers and ales from the BJCP style-guide and winners will take home some amazing prizes from our generous sponsors. The Best of Show winner will not only walk away with a shiny medal to show off to friends but will also have the chance to have the winning recipe brewed at Benelux Verdun (Montreal, QC)!
