Craft Beer Fest homebrew contest winner on sale at Joboy’s

By on January 11, 2017

If you didn’t have a chance to sample the winning beer at the sold-out festival in September, the stout’s now on tap at Joboy’s Brew Pub in Lititz.

Chris Harvey and Caitlin Miletto upgraded from homebrewing equipment and had their Morning Glory Royal Imperial Stout made on Joboy’s system before Thanksgiving.

“It’s a neat flavor combination,” says Kevin Shaw, Joboy’s brewer. “You get a little bit of everything in it.”

Dozens of beers were submitted to the festival’s homebrew competition. Festival organizers judged the beers and selected 10 to be poured at the event, which raises money for Lititz AMBUCS. People at the festival then voted for their favorite.

After the Morning Glory Stout, the voters picked a Yuzu Session Milkshake IPA made by Derek Wolf, Brad Moyer and Dean Pierce, followed by Goin’ Broke IPA made by Ryan Foltz and Sam Son.

The winning stout went on tap at Joboy’s just before Christmas. Since then, the 9 percent ABV beer has a 3.94 out of 5 rating on Untapped.
