Thirteen brewers participated in the competition, held at Hillsboro’s ABV brewery.
A Vox Max Belgian is the winner of the first-ever Tualatin River-water beer-brewing context.
The competition aimed to shine a spotlight on high-purity water systems and gathered home brewers from throughout the region. The winning brewer, Ted Assur, was so deemed by pro brewers from throughout Oregon and elsewhere.
Washington County Chairman Andy Duyck also served as a judge during the competition.
The event was backed by the Oregon Brew Crew, Clean Water Services and Carollo Engineers.
Some 1,000 gallons of water was pulled in June from the Tualatin River immediately downstream from Clean Water Services Durham wastewater treatment facility. The water was cleaned through a high purity water treatment system to clean it above and beyond drinking water standards.
Thirteen brewers participated in the competition.
Following Assur were Jeremie Landers, the second-place winner who brewed a German Pilsner, along with third-place winner Mike Marsh (for a Single Grain Saison) and Nick Dahl, who landed fourth place for his Kolsch.
