?This will be our third and very exciting year”A�says Kaitlin Vandenbosch- co-founder of Beer 4 Boobs. ?What is different about this years’ event is the introduction of a flavor theme to unify the beers.A�The 2014 brewing theme is ?Yeast Character?: brews that showcase the range of unique yeast-derived characteristics and flavours possible in beer”.
Attendees will have a chance to come and explore this rarely focused upon but intrinsic part of the beer experience. Creativity will again be the focus of this event.
