Brübakes V

Brübakes is returning again this spring! Join us on Sunday, April 21st 2-4 PM at the Checkerspot Brewing Company for a competition that pairs homebrewers and bakers to celebrate spring, sustainable brewing practices and the DIY spirit! Proceeds to benefit the Station North Tool Library.

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 10% of the dry ingredients or 5% of the total ingredients, 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 70-90 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 donated to the Station North Tool Library.
