Craft Beer Cartel Teams Up with Yoga Gangsters & Wynwood Brewing for the Second Annual End of Summer Brew Competition on Saturday September 19th, 2015

Because What Goes Better with Yoga than Beer?

Once Craft Beer Cartel opened with a plethora of home brewing equipment, supplies, and most importantly abundant parking…it only made sense to transition Riverside Market’s signature End of Summer Home Brew event to the new space.

Craft Beer Cartel then called in a couple of friends from Yoga Gangsters to add a new dimension, and dare we say, element of flexibility to the event. Yoga Gangsters is a Miami-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty such as limited education, addiction, violence, incarceration, teen pregnancy, homelessness and more using the practice of yoga, delivering messages of empowerment around self respect, self control, and self awareness. Yoga Gangsters serves under served communities by providing free yoga classes, teaching the practice of yoga to kids in crisis and at-risk youth in schools, jails, youth centers, homeless shelters, rehabs, foster centers and through other non-profit organizations.

The $25 entry fee covers the yoga class, entry to the home brew, and one coveted People’s Choice vote. For those less flexible, a $15 ticket scores you access to the Home Brew only.

As incentive for the Home Brewers to showcase their brews, the winner of the Home Brew Competition (Judge’s Choice) will have the opportunity to brew the winning craft beer at Wynwood Brewing. Home Brewers can sign up to compete online at by clicking here for $20 which covers 2 beer entries, with a $10 charge for each additional beer to be judged.
On home brew competitions past, Co-Owner Julian Siegel comments, “Reflecting on years and years of Riverside's Home Brew Competitions, it is no surprise that so many of our contestants and winners are now professional brewers and even own breweries! This year's winner will get to brew with Wynwood Brewing! Just think, fame, fortune, and getting to brew in a real production brewery…we’re making Craft Beer dreams come true.”

The End of Summer Home Brew takes place on Saturday, September 19th. Yoga starts at 4pm and the Home Brew Competition commences at 5:30pm. Craft Beer Cartel is located at 557 SW12th Avenue Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312.
