BrewCon London is returning to Walthamstow on Saturday, 7th October, for a day of talks featuring expert speakers from across the world of beer. There will also be exhibitors from all areas of brewing, and a range of brewing competitions.
This year brings a number of firsts for BrewCon, including the BrewKegTap Club Challenger Cup and the Lallemand Pro-Am Trophy.
The BrewKegTap Club Challenger Cup is a new homebrew competition for BrewCon with a 300-entry limit. A new BJCP-sanctioned competition, it is open to all amateur homebrewers with a focus on, but not exclusive to, the UK’s many great homebrewing clubs.
The Lallemand Pro-Am Trophy is a head-to-head event between professional and amateur brewers. For BrewCon 2023, the beer style featured will be British lager. The competition will be hosted by beer writer Melissa Cole. British lager means any lager style that predominantly uses British malts and British hops.
“Every year we are very proud to hold BrewCon, an event which brings together hundreds of the UK’s amateur and commercial brewers alike,” said co-founder Simon Pipola. “We always strive to improve the event year on year.
“We’ve also (finally) managed to secure Jamil Zainasheff as keynote speaker. We’ve been trying to get Jamil over for years, and everyone who loves brewing, or even just loves beer, should make sure not to miss his talk as he, quite literally, wrote the book on yeast.”
