2015 BEANS and BREWS
Due to many factors, mostly weather conditions and safety concerns in the condition of our outdoor location, we've decided to postpone this event until the 2nd Friday in April which is the 10th at the same time from 5pm - 8pm. A full refund will be issued to anyone not able to attend because of this change. If you still plan on attended you do not need to purchase another ticket.
We had a large number of homebrewers unable to fulfill the deadline with the rough week of snow and ice. As well we really would like this to remain an outdoor event and we believe a month delay will provide a safer environment overall.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and contact us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Andrew at 215.681.6862. Thank you for your understanding.
Attention Homebrewers: If you were able to drop off your entries we will hold them safely until April. New deadline is Friday, April 3rd.
Homebrew Judges: Please inform us as soon as possible if you can make it on April 4th at 10am.
***All Homebrew Entries are due by Friday April 3rd. Each bottle should be labeled with an entry form. The bottles can be dropped off at Pita Pit; 28 S. Market St., Elizabethtown, PA 17022 7 Days a week between the hours of 11am and 9pm. *** or at Lancaster Homebrew
