Crew SC Supporter Beer Taste-Off – Round 2!

LG_Crew2

A few weeks ago, we called on Crew SC Supporters to join us at the taproom and help us taste-test 4 different test batches of beer (two gold and two black), and the American Wheat won big. We also asked for input on each style of beer, and we’ve taken those recommendations seriously. Join us again on Saturday, August 22nd (leading up to the home Sporting KC match) and grab a flight of 4 variations on the American Wheat. Cast your vote, and the winner heads straight for the production, and will be debuted at Mapfre Stadium when the Crew take on Portland, September 26th.

We’ve got a ton of tickets to give away, and if you missed out on the limited edition Crew/Land-Grant glasses (pictured below), this is your chance to get your hands on one.

Tasting sets include a flight of all four brews, a commemorative Crew/Land-Grant glass, a full pour of the non-Crew Land-Grant beer of your choice, and the chance to win tickets to the Crew/Kansas City match. The tastings start at 2pm, and at 6pm, we’ll open the taps for full pour of the supporter beers (we want to make sure everyone has a chance to taste all four). If you’re not headed to the stadium that day, we’ll have the match on with audio at 7:30pm.

Crew Beer Taste-Off: Black vs. Gold

Saturday in the taproom we hosted a tasting party to determine the beer that will move forward as our Crew SC supporter beer. We brewed up four test batches (two black, and two gold) and asked the supporter community to cast their vote. Participants picked their favorite beer, offered up feedback, and even threw in a name suggestion or two. In the end, the American Wheat (CB02) was crowned champion and will go back to the brew lab for further recipe tweaking. Look for the beer later on this summer.
