Bluebonnet Commercial Beer

One of the activities after Bluebonnet is returning kegs to all the breweries who donated beer for the Big Thirsty. The beer that is remaining in the kegs cannot be served by the brewery so will get dumped unless any homebrewers want these before they get returned. Marcus has several of kegs that will be returned later this week.

  • Hop And Sting – Red Velvet Cookie Ale, English Ale
  • Hop And Sting – Frigid Underworld, Espresso Imperial Stout
  • Toasty Bros -Earl The Orange Alien, Dessert Stout
  • Twin Peaks – Drop Dead Redhead, IPA

If you have any empty kegs and would like some of this beer, contact Marcus Burleson at 972-464-6496. He is in Carrollton.

Also, a few other commercial beers have been pulled off to kegs and will be on tap at the next Big Rig Brew. Stay tuned ….

Bluebonnet Homebrew Showcase Beer signup list for 3/18

A signup list has been create for NTHBA beers that will be on tap at the Bluebonnet Homebrew Showcase on Saturday night. If you have volunteered to bring a beer to put on our kegerator, please signup at the following link.

NTHBA will have our 12 tap kegerator on site to serve homebrew from our members. Our goal is to have as many of our taps filled with high quality beers as possible. Your contribution does not need to be a full keg, partial or smaller (2.5 or 1.75 gallon) kegs are fine. Our kegerator is setup for ball lock kegs. Please indicate in the signup list what style keg you are bringing so we can accommodate if you have a keg that is not ball lock.

Thanks for all those that are contributing. If you have any questions, please contact me, Terry Olinger, at 214-310-2494.
