Monterey Autumn Brewer's Comp and Fest: A Beer Charity to benefit Wounded Warriors
Through several weeknight planning sessions and brewdays we had settled on the idea of a BJCP sanctioned homebrew competition and a homebrew festival to top it off and announce the winners. The festival would have to be a non-profit affair because of alcohol public serving laws; so we thought of creative solutions to this requirement. Charity seemed a natural fit to help the community. The proximity of Veteran's Day made the choice of charity fairly easy; Wounded Warriors is the benefactor of the festival which will take place next Saturday!
On a personal note, I also recently received my BJCP Tasting exam scores and have become a Recognized Certified Beer Judge!
This post is dedicated to all the volunteers for these great events and more importantly every American Veteran out there. Happy Veterans' Day!
