AWARDS & FESTIVAL!
5:30PM on Feb 17 at the Peterson Club. $9 for Peterson Club members, $12 for everyone else.
This is the fun part! Homebrew entrants, judges and stewards get into the festival for free!
We are asking that all entrants bring some of their brew to share with other brewers and festival attendees. Those who bring to share get a guest in for free! Recommend you bring at least 24, 12oz bottles, a couple growlers or the keg equivalent to share on Feb 17, 2012. Ideally, it would be some of the beer you entered in the competition. You’ll be serving next to some of our local micros. All brewers will be responsible for dispensing their beer to festival guests. Size of pour will be no more than 2 oz. The Peterson Club will provide booth space for each entrant to serve their beer – call the Club to let them know that you need booth space.
