Our First Brewery Event and Silent AuctionOn December 6th we held a brewery event at Accomplice Brewery and Ciderworks in West Palm Beach, FL. We filtered water from Lake Okeechobee and Everglades Stormwater Treatment Area STA-2 and then Accomplice brewed hard cider. We had LAKE O NO YOU DIDN'T a kiwi white chocolate cider and POUR ME A RIVER OF GRASS a traditional red hard cider. It was a lot of fun and we were encouraged to do this type of event again so keep watching facebook for announcements for our next brew event.
Our silent auction at the SFWMD headquarters will be held December 13, 8AM-2PM. We have over $6,000 worth of donated items on the auction block. We will post a list of the items and offer phone in bids the day of the event.
