The dynamic duo behind Grainmother Brewing Supplies and UVA Technologies is set to bring an event the likes of Griffith nor the Riverina have ever seen before with a Homebrewing Competition and Craft Beer Festival on April 16 at Griffith Community Gardens on Coolah Street.
In what is sure to bring a certified boost to the local economy, the inaugural event will provide homebrewers the opportunity to have their creations judged by an accredited panel from across the country.
And if homebrewing isn't for you, there is still plenty of fun to be had on the day with a number of independent brewing companies including the likes of Thirsty Crow, One Drop, Tumut River, Ekim Brewery, Pioneer Brewery and Six String providing attendees the opportunity to taste rare beers from heavy hitters to hyped breweries.
Organiser Adam Gaffey said now was the 'perfect time' to launch such an event in Griffith and the Riverina at large.
"We have seen a large increase in interest in the craft beer and homebrewing movement," Mr Gaffey said.
"Homebrewers now have the opportunity to better technology and ingredients, accessibility to information has improved so quality of homebrews is improving greatly and evolving so the quality is much better.
"Now more than ever people are understanding how to make their homebrews better at the lower level."
