It's that time of year when the entire town begins to look forward to The Piedmont Center's Artisan Brewing Competition!  This year's event (the Seventh Annual!!) will take place on Friday, October 6th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm at The Center.  Featuring amazing bratwurst and sauerkraut again provided by your beer-loving friends at The Piedmont Grocery as well as a lively band out on the lawn, the Brewing Competition needs your brews!!

Brews will again be accepted in all categories:  lagers, ales, flavored ales, porters, gluten-free; maybe someone could brew an alcohol-free beer this year!!!  There will also be a label competition.  It would be of great assistance to know in advance those of you who plan to enter a beer, and what type of beer it will be.  The popular "Bender Beer" (a hoppy ale) will be a contender this year as well as a chocolate porter.  Prizes to be awarded in all categories after the judging by our esteemed celebrity judges, Paul Benoit and Dave Larson!  Please email your brewing intentions to  All brewers of all levels encouraged to participate!
