GrowlerWerks sponsored the 2017 Oregon State Home Brewer of the Year Award. We know that many uKeg owners are also homebrewers. Homebrewing is the foundation of the house that the craft beer industry was built on. Many GrowlerWerks staff members are homebrewers and we're proud to support this community. This year Jeremy Jalabert took home the belt.

Jeremy not only produced the best beer, he created a wide variety of great brews in numerous style categories. Congrats Jeremy! Keep brewing, keep brewing!
Here in Portland, The Oregon Brew Crew is a legendary homebrewing club with an active membership of great people who also happen to be fantastic brewers. Like Rob Widmer for example. At OBC 2017 GrowlerWerks was honored and humbled to accept the Purple Bung Award for beer entrepreneurial innovation. The beer being served at the awards dinner was top-notch.
In 2018, Homebrewcon will be hosted in Portland, Oregon by the American Homebrewers Association. If you plan to attend, please stop by our booth and say hi. The uKeg can be used to force carbonate up to one gallon of brew, experiment with fresh hop and firkin flavors, or as a mobile serving device for your hopped up creations. Cheers!
