It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that we cannot hold the 6th annual Santas of Swig Homebrew Competition and fundraiser benefiting the Matt Urban Center's Hope House Homeless Shelter for Women and Children this winter. Circumstances will not allow us to hold the event as we have in the past. Our goal is to hold a version of it in the spring and then resume regularly scheduled programming in December. We are extremely proud of where we have come over the past 5 years. We have raised over $13,000 and 900 toys that go to make the holidays for those in need that much better. We will keep this going but it will need to be rescheduled!


Just because we cannot all get together and raise a pint does not mean that there is not something we can do. Especially in these extraordinary times, the needs of the community are great and we all need to help where we can. Only by coming together as a community can we continue to get through this.

With the help of several sponsors and homebrew clubs in the area, we are having a donation and fundraising drive. Below is a link to the Matt Urban Hope Center's Donation Page.
