Please join the CMAA group for the annual project tour at Brightwater. Details are still being confirmed, but please RSVP if you can make it on June 15th. We will meet at 2pm sharp, and will be wrapped up at the Brightwater site no later than 4pm that day. Happy hour will start shortly after, and perhaps that can involve touring the brewery as well. We encourage you to bring new folks to this CMAA event! A new face will equal a free beer!
