Saturday July 24th, 2010 from 3-5pm, The High Dive on Morena Blvd. will be hosting their fourth annual Beer King Competition. Just what is the Beer King Competition you might ask? It’s a blind taste test of twelve beers, whomever identifies the most is crowned the Beer King (or Beer Queen as High Dive’s Chad Cline notes that the last two years a woman has won the contest).
The event is a fundraiser for Hearts United, a non-profit charity that helps children in Liberia. Entry is $25 which gets you a commemorative taster glass, twelve tasters and free appetizers. Each contestant will receive a list of the twelve beers and it’s up to them to guess which is which based on taste, aroma and appearance. Cline tells me that it will be mostly craft beer with a couple macrobrew curve balls thrown in.
Tickets can be purchased in person at The High Dive or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
