Greetings from Keystone Homebrew!
Philly Beer Week starts tomorrow! Our events are listed below, with some changes and new information, so be sure to check them out:
Friday, June 4, 7:30 PM at the Independence Visitor Center (6th & Market Streets)
First, the bad news. Although it would be perfectly legal for us to do so, we will not be allowed to serve homebrew at this event thanks to purityrannical ideas and overzealous law enforcement. However, we will have some cool shirts for sale and great coupons to give away, plus it will be a KisE event. In other words, we will give you $5 store credit just for showing up in a Keystone shirt!
SIERRA NEVADA HOMEBREW CUP
So far we have received only a few entries. That means greater odds of winning the Grand Prize, which includes two nights at any Radisson Hotel or Resort worldwide!
