Greetings homebrewing enthusiasts!
The DCHB BBQ was so popular last year that we're proud to announce a bigger and better event this year! We will host the 2nd Annual DCHB BBQ on August 24th, in partnership with Sam Adams and this year's charity, Common Good City Farm! We are moving outdoors and tripling our space to allow more homebrewers, family and friends to participate (this is a kid-friendly event). Be ready. If last year is any indication, this event will sell out quickly.
