Summer Gathering of the Tribes on June 1 2019

Well it’s that time of year again where the Tribes will gather in Patapsco State Park on June 1 to celebrate the summer and great summer beers (like blood orange Wit). We will have a wheat beer competition with cash prizes.

There is no charge for the gathering but there is a small fee to enter the park (I think $2 per person). We are at the Hollofield Area Shelter 300. 

The park has a pack-in pack-out policy so if you can help the organizers by taking a bag of rubbish away, it’s a huge help.

What To Bring

  • Beer
  • Non-alcoholic Beverages
  • Some Food to share including hot dogs, appetizers, finger foods and salad.
  • Chairs or a blanket
  • Outdoor games (kid friendly) …no lawn darts at least no sharp ones
  • The Guild will provide rolls, ice and charcoal.

Wheat Beer Competition

American Wheat 6d, German Wheat 15a,15b,15c, or Belgian Wit 16a will be
accepted. The Competition will be pseudo-hedonistic, you will need enough beer
to fill one pitcher and you your entry will be judged by a few members of the
picnic (4-5 volunteers will be selected). The entry fee is $2.00 per beer. You
may enter as many beers as you would like. The top three wheat beers will win
prize money.

First Place  – $50.00

Second Place  – $25.00

Third Place  – $10.00

We usually kick off the competition around 2:30 PM.
