Beer/Mead Exchange

Attention all brewers, vintners, and imbibers! We will be conducting our SECOND ANNUAL Rivenvale Brew Exchange. Anyone (21 and over) who wants to participate should bring 12 bottles of their favorite brew, whether made yourself or purchased. Ideally, please select a type that you enjoy but isn’t an everyday drink, so people can leave with new drinks to try.

All participants will select one or two of each type (depending on the number of participants), and so will leave Fall Bransle with twelve varied brews.
