Our annual pre-party also serves as an annual meeting location for The Beer Spot community! They’ve helped us bring in breweries and get the word out in the past for this event, and we’ll be welcoming them back again this year. If you haven’t checked out their site, take a moment to do so as it is full of great beer-related information.
