World Cup of Beer 1st and 2nd Place Win!

World Cup of Beer 2013

Ian, Heather and Robert with ribbons from World Cup of Beer 2013


We spent last saturday at the 2013 World Cup of Beer Awards celebration over at Linden Street Brewery in Oakland. The annual homebrew competition is hosted by Bay Area Mashers and this year took in over 600 submissions.

Earlier in the year we had submitted seven different beers for judging against some pretty impressive competition and we’re pretty pleased with the results.  We took home a 2nd place award in the spiced beer category with our New Mexican Green Chile Pilsner and we received 1st place in the dark lager category with our Schwarzbier!

It was a great day for us and we had a great time hanging out with so many other talented homebrewers and friends. Cheers!

SF Beer Week 2013 Events

Our SF Beer Week schedule is up! Euphemia Ales will be participating in two events this year.



Speakeasy’s Beer Week Brewery Blowout

February 15th 12:00pm – 4:00pm @ Speakeasy Ales and Lagers
Three groups of homebrewers will be brewing an upcoming unreleased Speakeasy beer on their homegrown systems. Swing by and try one (or all) of Speakeasy’s special brews on tap and learn to make beer too!


SF Barrel Walk – A Homebrew Walking Tour

February 16th 12:00pm – 4:00pm @ Mission District, SF
Home brewers are opening their backyards and garages. See how homebrew in San Francisco gets made, while we’ll all be brewing batches of the same beer so that we can fill a barrel and age it for next year’s beer week.

This is a private event. You will need to register in order to participate.  If you are interested in attending, please email us.

IDEX Fundraiser, Come Taste 6 Unique Beers

We’re completing with 5 other homebrewers for street credit at the IDEX Fundraiser at the Mission Cultural Center. IDEX identifies, evaluates, and grows the best ideas from local leaders and organizations to alleviate poverty and injustice around the world.

For the Fundraiser each of the six breweries was randomly assigned a region where IDEX is actively fighting poverty, and had to develop a beer around that region.

Expect to see 6 distinct beers using native ingredients and other standards. Euphemia Ales will be showing off a Belgian Wit with turmeric!

Drinks and appetizers are FREE! Of course, tips are encouraged to help support IDEX and our grantees!

Homebrewing Demo at Speakeasy Brewery

Where: Speakeasy Ales and Lagers (map)

When: Noon-3pm, Firkin Friday, February 17th

Ever thought about learning to brew but don’t know where to start? Come participate in our homebrewing demonstration at Speakeasy Ales and Lagers during Firkin Friday of SF Beer Week. The Euphemia homebrewers will be brewing up three homebrew versions of Big Daddy IPA along with Pine Street Brewery and Artisan Brewing.

Come ask us the hard questions and see the basics. We’ll have three groups brewing the same recipe on different systems. Artisan Brewing will be rocking the extract/mini-mash batch that can be done in any apartment. Euphemia Ales will showing off an all-grain brewing system.  Pine Street Brewery will have the big guns out with a three-tier gravity system. All three variations are great examples of what you can do in your own home!

The homebrewing demonstration will be followed by “Meet the Brewers” of the SF Brewers Guild and live music. So come on down and support Speakeasy with $3 beers!
