DuClaw Brewing Company, a Maryland-based craft brewery, announced that the winner of the second Annual H.E.R.O. Homebrew Contest is a spicy and sweet Chocolate Chipotle Stout created by Vincent and Suzanne Powers of Nottingham, Maryland. The H.E.R.O. Homebrew Contest challenges novice brewers and beer aficionados to submit their own brews for review by an esteemed judging panel of DuClaw brewers and experts. The Chocolate Chipotle Stout will be brewed and ready for public consumption this fall.
The H.E.R.O. ’12 craft recipe is a silky-bodied stout boasting a spicy chipotle pepper bite perfectly balanced by smooth, sweet chocolate. It was chosen by DuClaw brewmasters over 54 other craft recipes submitted. H.E.R.O. ’12 will make its tap debut at a release event at the Bel Air, Bowie and Arundel Mills DuClaw Brewing restaurants this fall. Chocolate Chipotle Stout will be distributed in kegs and a limited run of 22 oz. bottles, available everywhere DuClaw beer is sold.
Just like last year, every single penny from the sale of H.E.R.O. ‘12 will be donated to charity, and now DuClaw Brewing Company is asking for help from the public in finding the charity, individual or organization most in need of a H.E.R.O. From now until June 30, 2012, DuClaw is accepting suggestions. Email your organization or individual’s story to email@example.com and tell DuClaw why they are in need of a H.E.R.O.
“We started this competition for the dual purpose of giving aspiring brewmasters a way to earn recognition for their craft, and as a way to give back to our community,” said CEO David Benfield. “Our mission is accomplished. Now it’s your turn.”
