Home brewers will have the opportunity to compete for prizes and bragging rights by entering their creations in the styles of Pilsner, Stout, Porter, IPA, Amber, Lager, Wheat, and Pale Ale.

Tickets are $15 per person in advance or $20 the day of the event, and those under 21 are free but must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets are available through the chamber of commerce.

In addition to the craft brews, there will be vendors and live music featuring the InstaGators and Taylor Corum in the square throughout the afternoon.
