On Saturday, August 10th, at The Rabbit Hole, The Indie Beer Show crowned a new champion of The Sore Eye Cup! Congratulations to The Original 40 for bringing home the victory with Juice Maze! Many members of The Original 40’s team were present to receive The Cup!
Juice Maze is the first hazy IPA to win The Sore Eye Cup, it comes in at 7% ABV and is double dry hopped with Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic. IPAs have now taken home the trophy 2 years in a row!
Located at 3117 University Ave. San Diego, CA 92104, this new tenant of North Park is the youngest brewery to ever win! They just added brunch, which I highly recommend.
A big thank you to Tim Stahl for taking photographs during the event; all of the images in this article are form him!
For all those that attended, thank you!
Let me express my extreme gratitude for those that donated food or funds to our Mama’s Kitchen food drive, we received 5 barrels of food and more than $650!
Thank you to The Rabbit Hole for being terrific hosts of the party!
The biggest thank you goes to our title sponsor, TapCraft Draught, thank you again for making this event possible!
One final, and gigantic, congratulations to The Original 40 Brewing Company! You have all the glory and prestige The Indie Beer Show can bestow upon an amazing indie brewery for one entire year!
