What is Op. Bravo?

Op. Bravo is a BJCP Sanctioned Homebrew Competition and Hero Recognition event hosted on 11/11/2017 by Homebrew 4 Heroes and Shannon Brewing. 

What better way is there to give back to our heroes than with a hand crafted brew? Op. Bravo allows brewers to pour their beer for heroes, get immediate feedback and provides them a chance to say thank you in person.

Heroes (current and former members of ANY branch of the military along with Police, Fire, and EMT) will be a beer judge for the day and will cast their vote for their favorite beer. At the end of the event, the brewer with the most votes will receive a People's Choice award.

 

Where and when is Op. Bravo?

Op. Bravo will be held from 12-5pm on November 11, 2017 (Veterans Day) at Shannon Brewing.

Shannon Brewing

818 North Main Street, Keller, TX 76248

 

How much does it cost?

Heroes can be a beer judge for the day for FREE (with credentials). If they wish, they will be able to purchase a tour at Shannon Brewing for a reduced price (Normal tour is $10) and receive a commemorative pint glass to take home with them.

Homebrewers can enter their beer in the competition for a $25 fee (includes a pint glass, tour at Shannon Brewing, exclusive offers on HB4H merchandise and eligibility for some AMAZING prizes).
