Those of you who were there know: this weekend’s first annual CGE-GTFF Civil War Brew-Off was a complete success. The beer was great. The music was great. The people were great. Basically everything about the event was great, except for the fact that the GTFF took home the best brew and best local awards (CGE did manage to capture best beer name with “Harry Porter and the Deathly Swallows”).  You can find photos on our Facebook page.

A final reckoning of the event goes something like this:

  • People in attendance: more than 200 (we had a good deal to drink and thus had trouble keeping an accurate count; we figured this out based on the proceeds)
  • Food collected: over 250 pounds (this goes to Food for Lane County, since the GTFF won best beer)
  • Proceeds: $577 above the total cost of the event (this will go to the Linn-Benton Food Share)
  • 120 commemorative pint glasses given away within: 30 minutes of opening the doors
  • 11 batches of home brew consumed by: 9:00 (a large beer run was made at 8:45 to fuel the event until 11:30)

This all exceeded our wildest expectations.  Thanks to all who came out and made the event a great success!
