    2017 “Pure Water Brew Competition”

     

    This highly popular competition is open to members of OBC only, brought to you by Clean Water Services, Carollo Engineers, and Black & Veatch.


    1.     Each Entrant will be supplied with 10 Gallons of Ultra Pure Water supplied by Clean Water Services. The Entrant must use this water to brew a 5 gallon batch of beer that is kegged and submitted in a standard 5 gallon corny keg.

     

    2.     Entries: There will be 40 entry spots available. Registration will take place online via the OBC website on Sunday May 14th @ 10:00 AM. Upon registration you will be asked to choose a strain of yeast and a style of beer.

     

    3.     Water Delivery Date  is Friday May 19th at F.H. Steinbart. Please pick up your water no later than May 28th. Volunteers will assist in loading your water.

     

    4.     Imperial Organic Yeast is once again providing yeast for all entrants the year. You can choose from the following nine strains. These will be available for pick up at FHS along with your water.

     Ale: Flagship, Barbarian, House

     Lager: Global, Harvest, Deiter

     Belgian: Napoleon, White Out, Gnome

     

    5.     Styles: The purpose of this competition is to focus of the water, therefore we don’t want beers that mask the water, I.E. CDAs, RISs, IPAs, Strong Belgians, etc.)

Although there will be a BJCP judge participating, many of the judges will be staff of CWS, volunteers, local celebrities and OBC members who will just be judging by taste and quality of the beer.

    No Adjuncts like fruit flavorings, spices (unless they are to the styles listed above), wood, etc. can be added to your beer. If you have any questions if your beer choice will be acceptable, contact me before you brew your beer @ brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org 


    6.     Reimbursement: In addition to free yeast and water, ALL PARTICIPANTS who brew an approved style of beer will be reimbursed $20 to offset their cost of ingredients.

    Greetings!

    We are coordinating another OBC trip to tour the Bull Run Watershed and have received our slot. This is a great way to learn about the primary water source for Portland beer and your drinking water.

     

    What is it?

     

    A private bus tour for the OBC of the Bull Run Watershed. There is a one mile hike (optional) to view the flora and fauna and learn how the Portland Water Bureau and US Forest Service work together to protect the watershed. You’ll walk through a dam built in 1929 and drive past one built in 1962. Lunch is on the shores of Bull Run Lake with spectacular views so bring a camera! Don’t forget to bring a sack lunch! (No alcohol allowed)

     

    There is a quick stop at the Columbia South Shore Well too.

    Learn about the source of Portland Water and why it is so terrific! Bring your questions and watch for bats at the ranger house near the 1929 dam.

     

    There are only 26 total seats on our tour, so sign up soon if you want to go.You must sign up before June 12 or they will open any remaining seats to the general public on the 13th. 

     

    Cost: $20 + $1.69 service fee
