5 Star Bulk Buy– Items have been ordered and will be available at the Yappy Hour Brew In on Sunday, August 6th. HAVE CASH/CHECK IN HAND when you pick up your stuff! Cash is preferred, so if you can accommodate paying in cash please do so!

Yappy Hour Brew In– August 6th at Apocalypse Brew Works. Start time will be 8:30 AM– bring your brewing rig and be ready for a great time. Your recipe should have been submitted if you registered to brew, if so your ingredients will be on hand and ready for you. We will have a grain mill and a scale available if you need to crush grain.

Chili Cook Off– this used to be an annual tradition with the LAGERS and we would like to see it become an annual event again. Make a pot of your best chili and bring it to the Brew In to be judged. Judging will be people’s choice for all attendees, so even if you aren’t brewing, come out and have some chili and BRING A KEG OF HOMEBREW TO SHARE.

KSF Competition Beer turn in — If you have any entries for the KSF comp, Wednesday August 9th is turn in day at the Fairgrounds from 10AM to 6PM. Guys be sure you read the rules and make certain your bottles are labelled correctly and meet all requirements!
