Sorry History Fans!  If you're not interested in this event, please skip
it.  We will have pre-prohibition styles on hand though.  Read on...

Time is running out to register for the activities associated with the
Second Annual Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing (MCAB) which will be
held in St. Louis from March 24 through March 26.  The St. Louis Brews who
are hosting this event are pleased to provide the final agenda for all
activities taking place.  

For a $50 registration fee, you are free to participate in all activities. 
In addition, you will receive a commemorative pint glass which can be put
to good use sampling the real ales, pre-prohibition and modern styles that
the Brews have homebrewed for this event.  It is a bargain and there will
be no shortage of beer or food available.

As I said though, time is running out and we have limited remaining space
available.  If you would like more information, visit or register at the
St. Louis Brews and MCAB websites, www.stlbrews.org and www.hbd.org/mcab,
or contact Bob Boland  at president at stlbrews.org, 314-654-6170 (w), or
314-725-6668 (h).
