(NMHC)New Mexico Homebrewing Competition (Formerly ProAm). Biggest Competition in NM. Entries Due September 9th, Judging September 16-18th

The Dukes Of Ale Club invites you to create and enter your beers, ciders, and meads. For several reasons, we'll be only hosting amateur homebrewers, and will be using the BJCP 2015 guidelines this year, so there's several new categories you can enter. We're planning on an awards event, as well as some other events you'll like, so we'll let you know details as they firm up. Mark your calendars and start designing your brews!

Dukes' Raspberry-Hibiscus Saison Win Judges' Choice at Tractor's "Battle of the Beer Geeks"!

Well, there were a lot of good beers to go against but we narrowly edged out the others to take home bragging rights for the judges' choice portion of the competition. Babes in Brewland won the most votes from patrons, and their pineapple saison was delicious! Seriously, all the beers were very good, so must have been tough choosing! Thanks goes to Ben and William Hamilton, Shannon Dyke, Scott Carpenter, Scott Cadwell, Tractor Brewing owner, Dave Hargis, and the fantastic gang at Tractor!


Meeting: Thursday, Sept. 1st 6:30 Rio Bravo Brewery: "All About Aussie Sparkling and British Golden Ales"

The 2015 BJCP Guidelines Cat. 12 "Pale Commonwealth Beer" has two great tasting, refreshing ales for you to create. Jeff Jantz and Kevin Fleming will discuss the style, brewing techniques, tips & tricks for you to make an amazing brew. Also, we'll have some examples of the style to sample/evaluate. We'll have some snacks, in case you missed dinner.

Dukes Of Ale Big Brew Day Fun and Educational Too!!

The National Big Brew Day in May was a lot of fun, with some of our homebrewers setting up their equipment and making wort. Thanks to Broken Trails Distillery and Brewery for letting us hang out at their very cool place. This is a once-a-year event where guests and members can see up front and personal, the brewing process from grain crushing to the final boil/chill. Our thanks to all the members that helped make this event possible! Hope you had fun and picked up some great tips.
