Description:  Although this will be the first Summer Homebrew Competition, it certainly is not the first competition we have run. We have taken part in another local competition for the last 3 years, and this year, have decided to do it on our own. We started this a little over three years ago in celebration of Mississippi passing Senate Bill 2183, aka The Homebrew Bill. As we have grown through the years as a club, we continue to push ourselves and our members to do great things. stay tuned for more… Kenny Roberts 2016...
