The Hogtown Craft Beer Festival is Saturday, March 23rd at the Alachua County Fairgrounds.
C.A.S.K. will be participating again this year and we need to get a headcount on who wants to help pour and/or who is down to contribute a keg of beer for the festival.
Please e-mail Mike Lentz ([email protected]) if you would like to participate! If you plan to contribute beer, please let us know the style. Keep in mind, we need a minimum of 5 kegs!!!
Our goal is to follow up with the Hogtown Brewer’s by the end of February, letting them know our member’s names and their beer style.
We are looking forward to a fun event. Cheers!
