Hola Amigos! 

We have had the awesome opportunity to participate in 2 of Chef Won Kim’s home brew events. If you have been in attendance to any of them, you know this guy knows how to put on a party! With that said, I present to you Kim’s next endeavor: Iron Brew, a home brew competition! 

What started as 40 brewers has been cut down to 20, those 20 will duke it out for a chance to win the grand prize of being flown out to Escondido, CA  to brew with Stone Brewing Co! Second and third place prizes aren’t too shabby either, second place brews with Two Brothers Brewing Co, and I think 3rd prize gets  a shit load of beer from both amazing breweries. I’ll take any of the above please! 

Come out and root us on as we will be pouring our homebrew “Porter Jumper”. We will also bring a couple other batches by for you all to sample. We wont be the only ones pouring, the other 19 brewers will be also so come get your fill!
