Home brewers get chance to brew with the pros at the Eldorado



RENO, Nev.The 16th Annual Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews & Blues Festival is searching for a brand new brewer — you!  That’s right, the Eldorado Hotel Casino and the Reno Gazette Journal are teaming up to find the next big beer and we’re looking for home brewers to share their recipes for a chance to mass brew and serve their own ale at the Great Eldorado BBQ, Brews & Blues Festival in June!

Whether it’s a bubbly pilsner, a sweet red or a hearty wheat, the Eldorado and RGJ want to hear about your best homemade beer.  To enter, submit your original recipe to Johnathan Wright, Food & Drink Editor at the RGJ, along with a brief biography about you and your beer.  Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, May 18.  A winner will be selected by Eldorado’s own Brew Master Greg Hinge.

Our 2011 Home Brew Contest winner will work alongside Greg at The Brew Brothers inside the Eldorado, hand-crafting the beer from start to finish.  The beer will be served alongside The Brew Brothers own specialty microbrews for crowds to sample at the Festival.  The winner will be contacted by the week of May 23.

What are you waiting for?  It’s time to get brewing!  To submit your recipes for the 2011 Eldorado Home Brew Contest send an email to [email protected] or mail to Johnathan Wright, Reno Gazette Journal, 955 Kuenzli Street, Reno, NV 89502.  For more details visit www.eldoradoreno.com or call 775-786-5700.  You can also find information and the latest updates on the Eldorado’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages or the iPhone and Android Apps.  Hop to it—it’s the 2011 Eldorado Home Brew Contest!
