Unhopped Iron Brewer Challenge Tasting at Gathering Place

Gallo-Roman Cervoise

On June 29, 2019 from 3:00-6:00pm Unhopped Iron Brewer Challenge winner Jeff Enders’ Gallo-Roman cervoise, which was brewed as a collaboration between Gathering Place Brewing’s Head Brewer Corey Blodgett and Spike Brewing in River West, was served to 30-40 enthusiastic beer adventurers.

GPs Joe Yeado printed leaflets so patrons who were not present at the January challenge had some background on the well-balanced spices featured in this crowd-pleasing winner.

As a long-standing member of the Beer Barons of Milwaukee, Jeff is not exactly a novice and GPs Head Brewer Corey Blodgett’s assessment says it all: “Good body, some spice, different fruits, and complex. We naturally carbed it in the keg and the carb level is perfect. Have fun tomorrow. It is a beer I would be proud of.” Congratulations, Jeff!
