Beer and the Stone Aged Man, Homebrewers Contest and the Upcoming Mountaineering Film Festival!November 9th, 2010
Homebrew Contest Alert!
The Bruery based out of Placentia, California sent out the details on its third homebrew competition today.
In celebration of The Bruery’s continued growth, the incredible support from our fans across the country and our humble beginnings as homebrewers ourselves, we will be holding our third ever homebrew competition; this one set to determine our 300th batch.
The first place recipe of the competition will be brewed as our Batch No. 300 and the winner will have the opportunity to assist us in brewing the batch on our system if they so choose. The first, second and third place winners will also get various forms of swag.
Along with the chance to have one of your very own recipes brewed and distributed, you will also be helping us raise money for those in need, as the entire $10 entry fee will be donated to Lestonnac Free Clinic, devoted to providing free, comprehensive medical care to the poorest of the poor in Orange County, CA.

In other news:
Today, Gawker highlighted a LiveScience report in which some archaeologists claim the rise of agriculture during the Stone Age–and ultimately, civilization as we know it–resulted from humans’ desire for beer, not food.
According to Brian Hayden at Canada’s Simon Fraser University, “Signs that people went to great lengths to obtain grains despite the hard work needed to make them edible, plus the knowledge that feasts were important community-building gatherings, support the idea that cereal grains were being turned into beer.”
