Ballast Point/SD Padres Home Brew Competition

I have been home brewing since 2010 and have found myself becoming more involved with the process and equipment in hopes of brewing the best beer possible. I learned a lot about the hobby from a few home brewer buddies and also devoting my morning and afternoon commutes to listening to The Brewing Network and all of their informative programming.

About two months ago, I finally made it to the Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits tasting room in Scripps Ranch and saw their poster for the competition.  Since I was set up to brew that weekend, I figured I would enter that beer.  Plus, entries were free.

The ball for the pitch!

Charlie Sheen showed up at the game that day too. He threw out a pitch.

I’m one of those people that seems to never win anything.

And here’s the pitch…low and outside!

The next step is to connect with Ballast Point Brewing to get this brewed on a bigger scale and I’m hopeful to have it entered at the upcoming 2012 Great American Beer Festival Pro-Am Competition in Denver this October 11-13.
