With Commander SAAZ in the books we can now look forward to Best Florida Beer. We have the opportunity to capture our first homebrew club of the year title and our second homebrewer of the year so you won’t want to miss the suspense and possible celebration. The awards night is October 8th, 6pm at Coppertail brewing and everyone is encouraged to wear their best halloween costume! A number of members of the guild are planning to stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in Tampa and UBER to / from the event. We encourage all members to make plans to safely get to and from the event.
BFB can use a few volunteers to help sort and label entries. See the details here.
If you can judge or steward for BFB please be sure to sign up here.
Because we expect a large number of members to steward, judge and attend BFB the October meeting will be moved to 2pm Sunday, October 9th at Rapp Brewing.

We will be LIVE September 17th at 7pm! Because SAAZ will have a stream via uStream we will be testing Youtube Streaming for the first time. This should provide commercial free and hopefully a higher quality viewing experience.
