It's that time again for Lagerpalooza Utah's pro-am home brew competition that focuses on the art of lagering beer. This year, organizers have added a public event to go along with the actual competition. The Bohemian Brewery will be opening up their back lot for a food and drinking area where the public can enjoy not only the regular Bohemian fair, but also try the winning recipe from last years Lagerpalooza winner. This beer will also be canned by Bohemian and sold at the brewery.
Lagerpalooza also coincides with the National Homebrew Day and the Lauterday BrewersHome Brew Club will be there for the Big Brew event. The public can take tours of the Bohemian, but also see how home brewers accomplish the same thing on a much smaller scale.
This will probably be the biggest event in the area to celebrate National Homebrew Day - a real fusion of the amateur and professional brewers coming together to celebrate making beer.
If you have a lagered beer that you'd like to enter, there's still time. You have until April 30th to enter. Here's the info page.
