Rain or Shine!
To brew or not to brew, that is the question. After all; the empty vessel makes the loudest sound. Can one desire too much of a good thing? Of course not, and as good luck would have it, there are friends, Romans, countrymen who have lent us their beers!

Not only do we plan a night of tastings and revelry, but you’ll learn what’s in a name by attending demonstrations about the science of beer making. In case of rain, the event will be moved inside.
