2012 marked the birth of the Iron Brew Competition, and Iron Chef-style homebrew-off hosted by Mellow Mushroom and ourselves. In it, teams of homebrewers were each charged with brewing a beer using one common ingredient. The winning team would get to brew their recipe with us, on our full-sized system. Not too shabby!
The secret ingredient for 2012 turned out to be honey, and the winning team turned out to be a couple of Charleston boys calling themselves Steinhoist Brewing. Their honey-fied take on a Belgian-style Blonde came out on top of a few dozen competitors. The full-sized batch was made with a whopping 90 gallons of Savannah Bee Company honey. Look for it on tap in our tasting room, and a couple of Mellow Mushroom locations around town, for a limited time.
