One of our favorite homebrew events last year was by far the Humboldt Homebrew Festival. When we got the email about the festival this year we both agreed, we had to figure out how to make it work. We had started brewing again but not that regularly, the festival was that impetus to really get brewing again.
Last weekend Eryn, bill, and I all made the trek up to Arcata to pour some of our beer at this great event I discovered called the Humboldt Homebrew Festival. I had come across it the year before but not early enough to get any beers together to pour so this year when I saw it come around on the competition schedule we made a point of getting registered and getting some beer together. And now I am so thankful we did.
