Event description

Description

Create TC and 7 Monks Taproom are happy to kick off Beer Month GR in announcing their Inaugural Stout Challenge presented by MI LOCAL HOPS!

The stout challenge is a local competition between TEN Grand Rapids breweries. Each brewery will produce their “Best Stout” and submit it for the event. Approximately 200 beer lovers will have the opportunity to purchase tickets, be a judge, and choose their favorite brew anytime between 5-10pm. All tasting will be blind. Ticket holders will know the description of the beer, ABV, and other facts, but the brewery will not be revealed prior to tasting. At 10pm, an awards ceremony will take place. The winning brewery will take home a trophy and the privilege of saying that their brewery has “The Best Stout in Grand Rapids.”
