Cache Brewing Society Softball Tournament

This Thursday the 27th CBS plays in the softball tournament to end it's first season.  We play at 6 pm at Willow Park against the Clock Tower Plaza team, which we beat earlier in the season 9-6.  If we win we will play again at 7 pm and then again at 9 pm if we win again.
We would sure appreciate it if our thirsty Cache Valley fans came and cheered us on and joined us at Andy's house for a post tournament celebratory beer or two.

AHA Rally in SLC

     Last night the Cache Brewing Society made a the trip to Salt Lake City for the American Homebrewers Association's Rally.  It was one helluva a good time. I was blown away as we entered and found out that everything was free. All beers were free (in Utah!) and they even had high ABV beers on tap for samples. (In Utah only 4% beers are allowed on tap.)We were given free run of the brewery and Charlie Papazian was there for a meet and greet. The Beer Nut, a SLC homebrew store, gave away tshirts, stickers and bottle openers.
