Right now Yards Brewing Co. has 30 different beers lined up for next week’s Smoke ’Em If Yous Got ’Em fest, and with more to come, the annual celebration could be shaping up to become one of the biggest smoked beer festivals of it kind. That is if wasn’t already the only smoked beer festival held anywhere. Like its two previous iterations, this year’s Smoke ’Em will match traditional style rauchbiers and other smoky brews with smoke-kissed meats from some of the area’s premier barbecue restaurants. And if that’s not enough smoke for you, the festival will also pit amateurs against one another in a barbecue challenge.

The $50 ticket gets you all the smoked beer you can drink, plus barbecue from Percy Street Barbecue, The Smoke Truck and Brauhaus Schmitz. Outside the brewery, amateur pitmasters will duke it out for prizes with their own smoked specialties outside. Email Yards’ Director of Operations Steve Mashington for details on the amateur barbecue contest.

So far the list of smoked beers includes offerings from:

Yards Brewing Co.
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

Nodding Head Brewery
Ithaca Brewing Co.
Victory Brewing Co.
Caldera Brewing
Evil Twin Brewing
Dark Horse Brewing
