Master Crafters, presented by Grimm’s Fine Foods, will be returning for #WVBF2019 and this year the future is looking hazy. Choice breweries will bring their best hazy brew to this blind taste test competition, where all the fancy branding will be stripped away. Equipped with only tasting notes, alcohol percentage and IBU, attendees are encouraged to try a sample (or two, or three) of each unidentified hazy beer throughout the evening before casting their vote for their favourite. At the end of the night, we unveil each brew and crown the winner. DJ Stache will be playing the platters at this cannot-miss event.
