Topic: Virtual Brew Day
The Yeast Wranglers invite you to celebrate Canadian Homebrew Day by joining us for a “Virtual Brew Day” on Sunday June 7th at 11:00 AM. (For more information on Canadian Homebrew Day, visit the Canadian Homebrewers Association website at https://canadahomebrews.ca/canadian-homebrew-day.)
The “official” beer style will be a Cream Ale, but feel free to brew your own favourite lawnmower beer (or any style for that matter).
