* The purpose is to reward those who brew on site in an effort to get more folks to come out and make this a great event. However, a VERY few number of exceptions will be allowed, for example, your electric brewing system is hardwired into your house. If you are granted and exception, then you will still be expected to attend the brew-in. Simply being unable to attend the event will not be considered as a permissible exception.
