• RRBC will not be at Extreme Beerfest 2015
    Well, there will undoubtedly be RRBC members attending the festival, but we will not be representing by pouring our beers there this year.  Due to the increase in the number of commercial breweries being squeezed into the same space, the festival will be far too tight for us to represent in the manner we like to.  Rather than draw straws and see which of us can go, we decided to skip it this year.  The festival is moving to a larger venue next year so we'll return in full force then.
