Endless Possibilities

Welcome to the sign-up for the WORT WAR II Brewing Contest 2017!

We heard your battle cry from last year far and wide so we've decided to WAGE WAR!

With a prize this good (brewed/served at NXNW and competition entry to GABF 2018), and with the feedback from WWI, we're opening up more spots with tiered options to suit the needs of our awesome friends and homebrewers. This contest is open to anyone who homebrews.

If you're excited about the party, and not necessarily a brewer who wants to enter, there will be a facebook page after the wort give-away to keep you informed. The block party is set for November 11th!


The Debrief:

Certified BJCP judges along with local professional brewers will be at awards ceremony and block party to weigh in and announce the Wort War 1 Champion on November 11th.


Our unique approach to a Homebrew Competition starts with each contestant picking up 5 gallons of pre-made wort from the NXNW Brewery-Slaughter location on September 27th and 28th. The finished product is only limited to the contestant's creativity, knowledge and skill with the end goal of producing a quality brew unique to that individual. The winning recipe will be brewed and served at both NXNW locations and entered into the Great American Beer Festival in 2018.

The Victor will be announced at NXNW Homebrewing Block Party hosted by NXNW - Slaughter and The Beerliner, on November 11th, 2017

  • Price includes: 5 Gallons of wort, custom WWII T-shirt, custom tasting glass, 2 free beer tickets to be used at NXNW, and contest entry. *There are multiple tiers of entry incase you have too much swag and your partner is about to strangle you for bringing in more clutter to the house
  • Entries will be judged by a panel of BJCP certified judges and local professional brewers
  • Chance to brew your recipe on NXNW's 15 BBL copper brewhouse
  • Winner will be entered into GABF 2018

Contest package, including full list of rules and dates, will be emailed to each contestant upon completion of sign up and payment.

The option to participate in the people's choice is also available, where you will present and serve your beer to the general public on the day of the block party. All we need is you to provide a TABC certified pourer and some of your delicious beer. Participating in the people's choice is highly encouraged as the prize, a $100 gift card to NXNW and a filled growler of your choice to take home, will definately make it worth your while. (More details to come after wort give-away)

Wondering about the wort? We will be giving away a basic blonde ale wort for you to do almost whatever you want with...no IBU's this time.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail our brewers: Hayden@nxnwbrew.com or Brad@nxnwbrew.com
