We’re teaming up with the Mamie D. Lee Community Garden are teaming up to host a home brew contest and how-to workshop this Saturday, September 18th at La Casa Community Center in Mount Pleasant from 7-10pm.
The evening will begin with two home brewers leading a one-hour workshop on how individuals can brew their own beer at home followed by two hours of home brew tasting. With their newly-informed taste buds, participants will sample the creations of numerous local brewers and vote for which brewer wins in the categories of Best Beer, Loveliest Look, Most Exotic, Best Back Story and Garden Fresh. Fresh, local crudités will be available as well.
Gardeners at the Mamie D. Lee Community Garden (located in Northeast DC) and NFI have seen their vegetable crops destroyed by deer grazing in the area. They hope to use the proceeds raised at this event to construct a permanent deer fence to protect plants for years to come.
A suggested donation of $10 will get you a seat in the workshop, a cup for sampling and a ballot for voting.
Hope to see you there!
