Coconut Cup is Open

The Coconut Cup competition is now open. This is the first competition of the year on the Florida Beer Circuit. As a CASK member the club will pay for your first two entries.  You can register your beers on Reggie. This competition has a 400 entry cap with an $8 entry fee per entry which you will be responsible for after your first two entries.

We don’t have confirmation of a railroad yet. Hopefully we will have a volunteer who can drive the beers down or at least half way to another club to be taken to MIA Beer Company in Miami. If you are interested in driving the beers down the club pays for your gas, lunch, and a beer. Fresh MegaMix!
