Competitive Brewing involves three rounds of brewing in each Brewing Competition Cycle, the Pilot Round, the Pico Round, and the Nano Round, with the following rewards for each round.



  1. Pilot Round For brewing an entered recipe on one of our 50L (13.2 gallon) Braumeister Plus pilot brewing systems made by Speidel in Germany, you will receive a $25 gift card to Pilothouse’s taproom plus a t-shirt showing that you brewed at Pilothouse.
  2. Pico Round If we invite you back, i.e., we select you as a winning semi-finalist, (based on your Pilot Round beer sales divided by time on tap relative to the other beers in the Pilot Round of a Brewing Competition Cycle) to brew your winning recipe on our 200L (1.7 barrel) Braumeister, you will receive a $100 gift card to Pilothouse’s taproom plus select branded apparel and merchandise, e.g., a Pilothouse trucker cap and sticker.
