We are resurrecting the Iron Brewer Home brew competition. The ingrediant that you all must use is dried Elderberries. This is not a BJCP event. Throw caution to the wind, and get creative! The Competition will be held tentatively in November. Date to follow. If anyone wants to host Please let Brandon or Cindy know. This is not limited to beer!! You can make wine, or cider or meade or beer. Have Fun!!
