Brewathon 2.1

This Saturday March 22nd, available members of Brewathon will be gathering to brew over 60 gallons.  How many point releases will it take before we actually make it to Brewathon 3.0 is anyone’s guess, but here’s hoping sooner rather than later.  Unfortunately, this step towards the next revolution will not be televised.  Stay tuned for future event announcements.

Cheers
