If any FOAM member would like to attend a class and lend us you expertise on either the beer styles or technical topics being discussed, you are more than welcome! Our students can really benefit from your beer making and style knowledge.
We will also need a few extra hands for the off flavors session on October 18 and to help during the actual exam itself on October 24 (location to be determined).
