Brewmasters to compete in Hanover's Brewery Olympics

Something’s brewing in downtown Hanover. 

Four-person teams will be competing in various events Saturday as part of the 2nd Annual Brewery Olympics. 

From 1 to 6 p.m. at Center Square in downtown Hanover, the teams will compete in four events in their quest to gain the gold medal and win the ultimate beer lover’s experience — brewing a "made here" beer of their own design. 

Teams can register for the event at mainstreethanover.org or at www.eventbrite.com. The cost to enter a team is $80, with proceeds going to Main Street Hanover, which supports economic development in the township. The competition is limited to 24 teams. 

The 2nd Annual Brewery Olympics is on tap July 23 in Downtown Hanover.

Each team will need to supply their team name and will be asked for all four team members' names, T-shirt sizes and birthdates after registration. Games will not involve alcohol, but participants must be 21 or older to compete.

The teams will compete in events testing strength and skill in three main events presented by each brewery. The top scoring teams will compete in the final event, a team relay race featuring participants carrying different sized kegs.

Brewery Olympics is sponsored by the three breweries in downtown Hanover — Fat Bat Brewing Co., Something Wicked Brewing Co., and Zeichen des Pferdes. The businesses will combine their efforts to help the winning team develop a new brew from start to finish through the month of August. The winner’s beer will be launched for tasting in September.

The breweries are doing this fundraiser for Main Street Hanover as a thank you. 

“Main Street Hanover has done a lot for the three of us breweries, and the downtown area as a whole, so this is our way of giving back,” said Jon Sanders, manager of Something Wicked Brewery.
