Tap that Topeka
« on: June 30, 2013, 07:34:10 pm »
There was a beer fest put on by a group called "Go Topeka". They are a group that looks for ways to enhance the city's image, attract businesses, etc. I thought the admission was a little steep at $30. And for that you only got a plastic sampling cup. For $75 you got a souvenir glass and an extra hour. But other than that it was pretty well organized and well run. There were 39 breweries there. Half a dozen from Kansas that I had never heard of. One of them had a really good IPA called Cellermans. This place for each beer had a listing of the grain bill, hops used, and OG. I looked at the grain bill and told the guy it was very similar to the one I use for my IPAs. He then went into great detail about how to brew his IPA. He did no bittering additions and started putting Amarillo in at the 15 minute point (hop bursting) then he put Summit hops in after the whirl pool then later dry hopped with them. The stuff was really good. I took some pictures while I was there.
