HERE'S SOME NEWS FROM THE CALIFORNIA HOMEBREWERS ASSOCIATION:
Happy Holidays CHA Members!
Even though the weather outside is chilly, you can keep yourself warm planning your homebrews for the 25th Southern California Homebrew Festival! April 30th is just around the corner, and we are about to start registration for the fest.
Starting Friday January 1, all 2016 CHA Members will be allowed to register themselves for the 25th SCHF. Only one registration per CHA member! Early registration fee is $35, and increases as we approach the festival.
Also starting January 1, we will accept volunteer registration. Any CHA member can sign up for volunteering. Volunteers commit to two (2) hours of work during the fest in exchange for free SCHF registration! If you sign up for Sunday cleanup, you will only need to do one (1) hour of work. Volunteer registration lasts through February 1, or until all spots are filled.
For the 25th SCHF, our Bragging Rights Only beer style is American IPA, 2015 BJCP Category 21A. Further details are available in the CHA Members Only section of the website.
Finally, the artwork submission deadline for the 25th SCHF is February 1. Calling all artists! Submit a logo to be used for the 25th Southern California Homebrew Festival. The winning logo will be used on all promotional material, including the commemorative glassware. Winners also receive complimentary festival registration (CHA membership must be purchased separately). See our website for submission details.
Hoppy Brew Year!
