6th Annual Home Brew Competition & Beer Festival

Whether you make beer or simply love it, the 6th Annual Home Brew Competition & Beer Festival on Saturday, April 24th, will be twice the fun!  For home brewers, it is a way to showcase their creations, get feedback on beer recipes, a chance to win some cash and a spot on LauderAle’s draft line just in time for the 7 year anniversary festival. For others, it’s an opportunity to try a variety of great, local beers they otherwise wouldn’t be able to taste.

Onsite food truck(s), live music, games and more will make this a festival for everyone to enjoy.

More than 15 home brewers are expected to compete in this year’s competition.
