Spring is here and so is an update on the Barley Grail Brewing Cooperative. Hope everyone is getting over the long Winter and ready for some sunshine.
April 2 Event
Our first event was a learning experience, but a success nonetheless! Even the snow was falling, over a hundred people from Northeast Ohio showed up and drank beer from the area’s best local craft breweries.
The band “Celtic Rush” was great, the Final Four match ups were exciting, the home-brew competition was informal but fun, and we raffled off some great prizes. All in all it was a great evening, and both charities featured at the event- Nicki’s Gift Foundation and Brilliant Minds Unleashed benefited from the thirsts for craft beer from all the attendees.
Special thanks to Bob Hernandez from Aqueduct Brewery and all the volunteers.
The Barley Grail also welcomed 5 new member-owners into the cooperative after BrewMadness, bringing us that much closer to launching and owning our own brewery! We have more fun events planned so be sure to check back often!
