Our Amber Waves of Grain (AWOG) homebrew competition is coming up with judging being held Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th. This is an all hands on deck event so we will need everyone’s help, no matter how small, to make this run smoothly. We will need judges, stewards, and general helpers for the event. The judging is followed by a wonderful banquet in the evening. The website is up and running so please check it out and sign up to judge, steward, or otherwise volunteer. http://awog.niagarabrewers.org/. We have not met the minimum headcount for the banquet so please get your tickets by April 4th as that is the deadline.
