2014 Homebrew Competition Recipe Winner Tapped at the Eccentric Café

The tapping of the 2014 Homebrew Competition’s winning recipe kicked off with a ringing of the bell and a toast to winning homebrewer Matt VanNatter by Pub Brewing Manager Zeke Bogan.

Matt recently had the opportunity to help brew his winning recipe at Bell’s original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo, which debuted at this year’s Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison, Wisconsin earlier this summer.

A California Common style beer brewed with coffee, Coffee Mustache (6% ABV) is a deceptively pale beer with distinct roasty, nutty, coffee notes created by aging the beer on whole coffee beans from Kalamazoo Coffee Company.

Matt will soon head to the 2015 Great American Beer Festival in Denver as a guest of Bell’s and compete alongside one of our brewers in the Pro-Am Competition.

The 6th Annual Bell’s Homebrew Competition Kick-off and Expo will be held this year on Sept. 19 at Bell’s Eccentric Café in downtown Kalamazoo.
