Polar Beer Festival 2002

The Royal Oak BreweryThe Royal Oak Brewery, for the second year hosted the Polar Beer Festival 2002.  This year there were some changes, but all-in-all the gig was a success.

According to the information that The Royal Oak Brewery handed out, there were 14 micro-breweries, with over 30 beers to choose from.  The Polar Beer Festival had 2 sessions, each ran for 2 1/2 hours. During a session you received a complementary glass, free food buffet, and all the beer you can drink.  Roughly 150 people were let in for each session, and besides getting a complementary glass each vendor had some sort of free coaster, key chain, sticker, or pamphlet to handout.

Like last year, there was a single recipe tasting contest.  All participants were asked to brew one barrel of the same beer.  The amount and style of malt and hops was identical for each brewery.  The only difference was the local water and yeast used at each brewery.  The goal was to brew a Sweet Stout with a target of 1.048 original gravity (12░ Plato) and a target bitterness of 25 IBU's.
