  • Blue Ridge Brew-Off

    As the organizers for the BRBO competition are still trying to get their sea legs back from Covid, it has been decided that although it was historically held in the fall, it was felt the additional time will allow for recruiting volunteers and additional planning; so, the event will be moved to Spring, 2023, held tentatively on the last Saturday of March.

    The spring is usually not as busy a time for competitions and this event will be marketed as a pre-cursor to HomebrewCon, allowing interested participants to get some early feedback on brews that they might be considering to enter at the National level.

    The drum will be beaten for volunteers which will include organizers, judges, stewards, as well as visionaries who can take this competition up to the next level.
