Don’t miss Beerfest 2011. You’ll meet your friends pouring and have the chance to mingle and exchange notes with other beer aficionados. Tickets are available at West Pierce Liquors and the College of Fine Arts and Communication, 117 Browne Hall.
The PAS thanks the sponsors of Beerfest—West Pierce Liquors and The Forum of Macomb, IL. And we can’t do it without the help of our distributor MarketPlace Selections of Peoria, IL.
