Dillsburg Homebrew Fest Winners

It was a sold out event for the 2014 Dillsburg Homebrew Fest where local home brewers competed for a great cause and cash prizes. The event held at Noonan’s Tavern in Dillsburg, PA from 2-5pm on Saturday, April 19, benefited the Dillsburg Relay for Life, “Team Heroes of Hope”, and the American Cancer Society.
