The Lehigh Valley Homebrewers took home the prestigious Cup last year, but the Keystone Hops established an imposing 18-point lead following the War of the Worts in February. Be sure to indicate your club affiliation on your entry forms.

BREW NIGHT AT THE MERCER MUSEUM
Friday, August 14, 6:30 PM Join us at the Mercer Museum for the 4th Annual Brew Night program, bringing beer enthusiasts and history buffs together for a fun and educational evening. Philadelphia-area brewing historian Rich Wagner will discuss various brewing techniques across Philadelphia between the 17th and 19th centuries, the types of brews that were produced and the well-known brewers and drinkers of the time. A tutored beer tasting with Keystone Homebrew Supply and Yards Brewing Company (“Ales of the Revolution”) follows the presentation. Light refreshments are included. Cost: $27 ($23 BCHS members). Reservations are required: call 215-345-0210, ext. 123. http://www.mercermuseum.org/

TWO ADDITIONAL BEER EVENTS THAT ARE COMING UP:
The International Beer Expo on 8/15, www.greatbeerexpo.com This event appears to be undersold so it should be fun not having any lines to get beer.

August 22nd from 4-8, Beer Fest at McFaddens at the BallPark featuring the BEERamid Challenge. Good beer and sports, at a festival!

Ferment on!
