As I’m just getting back from a weekend trip to sunny San Diego, it seems like the perfect time to mention this year’s National Homebrews Conference. The event will take place from Thursday, June 11 through Saturday, June 13 at the Town & Country Resort & Convention Center in San Diego. If you are an active homebrewer and have never been to San Diego, this would be a great opportunity to visit the city and enjoy all the great beer available down there.
More details follow in the press release below, but please check out the website for full conference information. The registration window opens tomorrow, February 18 and runs through February 24.
