Two Events Going On This Weekend:
One at The Grumpy Troll: The Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild will conduct the Grumpy Troll
Challenge Homebrew Competition at the Grumpy Troll Brew Pub in Mount Horeb,
Wisconsin (about 30-45 minutes SW of Madison) on Saturday, 7-March-2009
Competition entry is open only to members of Wisconsin homebrew clubs, but
we welcome all BJCP judges to join us for the judging. The winners will
brew a batch of their winning beers with Brewmaster Mark Duchow for sale at
the pub. Yes, that was plural, winners. The judges will pick 3-5 winners,
but will not select a Best-of-Show winner. Customers will be the
collective BoS judges. The 3-5 winning beers will be brewed, be served at
the pub, and Best-of-Show honours go to the best-selling beer.
The other is the Arthritis Foundation FestivAle:
Saturday, March 7, 2009
12:00 - 4:00 p.m.
High Noon Saloon, Madison, Wisconsin
Join us for FestivAle! Try a variety of distinctive craft beers, all created right here in Wisconsin.
All guests will receive a souvenir pint glass. Enjoy snacks, music, and great raffle prizes!
