UW Craft Brew Competition

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Two lucky UW-Madison students will be brewing beer with Wisconsin Brewing Company.

It’s all part of the UW Craft Brew Competition. A class split up into groups and created their own American Pale Ale. To honor the Wisconsin National Guard, this year’s beer is named, “Red Arrow” after the 32nd division which served in World War I.

On Wednesday, five brewmaster judges tasted all the beer and picked one lucky winner.

"They're making beers that are a lot better and a lot more well made than a lot of the micro craft brews were made 20 years ago. They have a lot of potential. They're really into it. They study and research it very hard, and they do a great job,” said Kirby Nelson, Wisconsin Brewing Company Brewmaster.

The students will go to Wisconsin Brewing Company next week to plan to brew their ale for the public.
