24th ANNUAL

COMMANDER SAAZ
INTERPLANETARY HOMEBREW BLASTOFF

September 14 & 15, 2018

Commander SAAZ Interplanetary Homebrew Blastoff is the homebrew competition hosted by SAAZ every fall. Our competition features homebrewed beers, meads, ciders and rocket fuel from all over the country.  One of the largest competitions in Florida, and the one where you can have your entries judged by rocket scientists.

In September 2017, Hurricane Irma came through and aborted the Commander SAAZ 2017 launch, damaging the event venue so badly that the weekend festivities had to be cancelled.  Fortunately, SAAZ members were able to invoke their disaster recovery procedures to salvage the competition portion of the event.   This year, the Commander and his entire crew are looking forward getting back to a full weekend of competition and camaraderie with other home brewers.  The launch preparations are underway, and the countdown has begun!

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, feedback, pictures to share, anything Commander SAAZ related, please email our Mission Commander at cmdr.saaz@saaz.org.
