White IPA wins Iron Brew competition


Holy City‘s second-annual Iron Brew homebrewing competition has come to a close and a winner has been crowned.

Of the 49 entries in the competition, Nifty Brewing’s Imperial Stormtrooper White IPA – brewed with lavender, basil and coriander – was the judge’s choice and won the chance to be brewed at HCB for distribution to the Mellow Mushroom pizzerias in Charleston, West Ashley and Summerville in the near future.

On top of that, $6,000 was raised for The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation, a group that awards scholarships for either the College of Charleston or Charleston Southern University for students with disabilities.

Homebrewers who entered in the competition were allowed to brew whatever style they wanted, but had to use a combination of coriander seed, basil, rosemary and lavender.
