Craft brewing club holds competition

Brasseurs a la Maison, a Baton Rouge craft brewing club, will hold its first Iron Brewer Festival at 6 p.m. Friday at Tin Roof Brewing Co., 1624 Wyoming St., Baton Rouge.

Ten groups of participants crafted beers from randomly chosen Louisiana foods like cayenne peppers, peaches, rice, red beans, pecans and strawberries. Each team then picked a style of beer, such as a Belgian stout or a Saison. Visitors will be able to sample each brew with admission to the festival, which is a non-perishable food item for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Food trucks will also be on hand.
