About this event

Attention homebrewers! We’re organizing a homebrew competition and we want you to participate so get your tickets now!


We’re going to create a batch of wort on Saturday, June 12 and split it up among a group of homebrewers. Those homebrewers will take the wort home to boil, ferment, bottle, etc. They’ll return with finished beer on Saturday, July 24 for judging and a tasting of the contest beers. There will be homebrews, Labyrinth brews, food, and cool prizes!

Interested? Keep reading…
