Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition

The Doug King Memorial Homebrew Competition is an annual event hosted by the Maltose Falcons Homebrewing Society every January, to honor their fallen compadre and creative brewer extraordinaire Doug King.  The competition is open to homebrewers from all over the country, and focuses largely on lagers and specialty beers (including an “Imperial Anything” Category).

This year, we’re proud to announce that the winner of the competition will get to brew a big batch of their beer right here at Eagle Rock Brewery!  It will be interesting to see how creative the competition gets this year, and also challenging to re-create one of those specialized, small recipes on a large scale.

My dad and I have a few medals from past years of this competition, so it’s really exciting to be able to give back to this event, and to the cause for creative brewing.

Good luck to everyone, and we look forward to sharing the results…Cheers!

  1. This is Incredible! I wish I would have brewed an “Imperial Anything.” I will be entering my higher gravity Pumpkin and Christmas Ales though. Good Luck everyone!

  2. Looking forward to joining you guys on the 22nd…this will be our first homebrew comp for my dad and I after brewing for a year.

    Like Kip, we’ll be entering a pumpkin ale as well as a “imperial anything” belgian dubbel. 🙂

    Thanks for hosting Eagle Rock Brewery!
