Brewers Ball Tier 1

Brewers Ball is a celebration and awards ceremony for the Florida brewing community. As such, we have depended on volunteers for setting up/tearing down the festival. This is a unique experience for the pro brewers since at a typical beer festival they are expected to do all of the work (supply, beer, setup/teardown draft boxes, pour beer for the public). As the event gets bigger, this is becoming a bigger challenge. Growth of BFB resources and volunteers will be necessary to keep up with the proliferation of the industry and the event.
