Brübakes IV

Brübakes is returning again this spring! Join us on Sunday, April 23rd 2-4 PM at the Duckpin Room at Union Craft Brewing for a competition that pairs homebrewers and bakers to celebrate spring, sustainable brewing practices and the DIY spirit!

Attendee tickets are available at

Competition Overview

  • Brewers must design a Belgian-style Saison ale to be served with a baked good. The catch? Bakers are required to use spent grain from the brewers' mash (at least 5-10% by weight) to create their counterpart.
  • Those who are up for the challenge may act as both brewer and baker.
  • Competitors need to bring at least 5 gallons of homebrew and about 120 baked good samples (Expecting about 60-80 attendees).
  • Recommend freezing your spent grain after brew day.
  • Baltibrew will provide ice. Dump buckets and water pitchers will be available.

Attendee Overview

  • Must be 21+ years old to attend.
  • All you can sample homebrew and baked goods.
  • Ticket includes a Baltibrew Brübakes Belgian-style sample glass.
  • Ticket proceeds will be used to fund future Baltibrew events, gatherings, and charitable donations throughout the year.
