Recap: Homebrew Harvest Fundraiser 2014

Chelsie at Homebrew Harvest

This past Sunday I spent a beautiful fall afternoon at the first annual Homebrew Harvest held at the Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey. I was there to help setup the event, check-in homebrewers as they arrived and assist my husband, Derek, pour his two brew creations: ‘Lime Seeing Red’ Saison and Citra Session IPA.

I was blown away by the 47 entries not just because there were so many beers but they were all so very good. And, the efforts of all helped raise $$$ for the Four Diamonds Fund.
