The Urban Knaves of Grain are proud to announce that registration for the 2012 Drunk Monk Challenge homebrew competition is now open.
The competition will be held March 9-10th at Two Brothers Roundhouse located in Aurora, IL.
The Drunk Monk Challenge is a qualifying event for both Midwest Homebrewer of the Year and the Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing.
The Menace of the Monastery competition is a competition unique to the Urban Knaves of Grain. The Menace of the Monastery celebrates beer styles which can be traced back to the monastic brewing traditions of Belgium and Germany. In other words - stuff monks would have brewed back-in-the-day. This distinctive competition is judged separately from the Drunk Monk Challenge. A special award is made for the winner of the Menace of the Monastery.
