It’s OK, its not a bad word. Some wear the title like a badge of honor. If you’re one of them, come by on Monday night to see if you’ve got what it takes to be THE Philly Beer Geek. The Philly Beer Geek competition is now in it’s 5th year. This Monday at 7:00 pm the Barley Legal Homebrewers will be here to MC a 2012 preliminary round. Two winners will advance to the Philly Beer Geek semi-finals on Wednesday the 23rd at Manyunk Brewpub. In addition to the chance to advance to the semi-finals we’ll be awarding the winner their choice of a $50 Iron Hill gift card or a 55 pound bag of Weyermann pilsner malt, the first runner up a $50 gift card or bag of malt (whichever the winner doesn’t take!) and the second runner up a 750 ml Iron Hill reserve bottle of their choice. The grand prize for the final round is pretty sweet, plus you’d get to flaunt the title of Philly Beer Geek ’till you get dethroned in 2013. See you Monday, and good luck!
