* Homebrewer’s Passport: In order to have enough beer from our contestants to facilitate a fun and fair People’s Choice Award, we will provide patrons a passport to use for beer sampling. You will receive a sticker from the brewer each time you sample a beer. You will only be able to visit that station once and we reserve the right to cut anyone off. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of beer to keep your cheeks rosy and your disposition jolly!

Pro-Am Homebrew competition started with each contestant picking up 5 gallons of pre-made wort from the NXNW Brewery-Slaughter location on September 1st. The finished product is only limited to the contestant’s creativity, knowledge and skill with the end goal of producing a quality brew unique to that individual. The winning recipe will be brewed and served at both NXNW locations and entered in to the Great American Beer Festival 2017.
