    SMaSH Off with Bookcliffs Homebrew Club

    FROM BOOKCLIFF HOME BREW CLUB: We are holding a SMaSH competition between Bookcliff Home Brew Club and Black Canyon Home Brewers of Montrose! Using the grain and hops that were recently donated to BCHB, this is a FREE competition that will utilize one grain and one hop variety per competitor/team. The grain and hops Bookcliff Home Brew Club have available are as follows [NOTE: the below table is what’s easily available to Bookcliff – please see earlier posts for what’s available to Black Canyon – ds]:

    Crystal 60 – 25 lb
    Crystal 77 – 25 lb
    Pilsner – 25lb
    Vienna Malt – 25 lb
    Pale Chocolate – 24 lb
    Beech Smoked Barley – 25lb
    3oz Crystal
    6oz Cascade
    20oz Magnum
    6oz Chinook
    6oz Michigan
    3 oz Comet


    Message us with one grain and one hop variety from the above lists, including the amount you want to use. You will then pick up from an officers house (we will DM you the address). Brew your SMaSH beer and have it ready by the end of May. We will provide you with the drop off details. Judging will take place in June and we plan on having a dual club meet up and tasting of the SMaSH beers that were brewed as well as announcing the winner! Judging will be based on BJCP standards for whatever style is submitted.


    SMaSH stands for Single Malt and Single Hop. It’s a great way to focus in on one hop variety and one malt variety and see how each stand on their own as well as how they compliment one another within a single beer recipe. It’s a method that is utilized among both home brewers and professional brewers alike.

    This will be a first come, first served thing, so message us asap to get what hops and grain you want. Please message us if you have any questions! We look forward to competing with our neighbors in Montrose!

    Coming (very) soon…

    Keven, formally from San Juan Brews, is opening his own place called Pomona Brewing. He hopes to open on Saint Patrick’s Day! His address is 830 North Townsend Avenue – the corner of North Ninth and North Townsend. He already has seven beers ready to go and more on the way! So check out his website and facebook page. Better yet, stop in and have a pint!
