ET Barnette Brew Competition

Several Mobile area brewers have been entering the E T Barnette Brew Competition in Fairbanks, Alaska for a number of years.  This is a relatively small contest and a few of us have won on occasion. The Wine Smith subsidizes the UPS air shipment of the samples to Fairbanks for $25 per entry (Three 12 oz. bottles) for our customers.  This year's deadline for the shipment is July 6th. Contact Dennis Smith if you are interested in participating

The Wine Smith has pin lock Kegging Kits available for $229.  Kits include a reconditioned keg, 5 lb. (filled) CO2 tank and dual gauge TapeRite pressure regulator, plus the appropriate hoses, fittings and a squeeze tap. A kit without the keg is $185. A BYO Kegging Guide is also included with each kit.
