A special thanks to Hopunion and the AHA for sponsoring and putting this video together highlighting our club. We are so grateful to be acknowledged and chosen by our peers in the homebrew community for this award. We couldn't be more proud of each and every member and volunteer who make our charitable arm such a success. 

CBM Wins the NHC Radegast Award

Written by VP of Communications on . Posted in About CBM

On Saturday, June 14, the awards banquet was held at the 2014 National Homebrewers Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Several CBM members were present to pour our home made beers and represent one of the oldest and largest clubs in the country.

CBM expected a strong showing for the Radegast competition and so a committee was formed and headed by Rob Adams to put the clubs accomplishments forward. Our presentation caught the eye of an impartial panel of judges from the AHA Governing Committee and The Carolina BrewMasters became the first ever Radegast Club of the Year winner!

Congratulations to all of our members for this amazing win! Your hard work, diligence, and dedication not only to your finely honed craft of brewing, but also in support of our amazing community, has put CBM on top of all other clubs in the nation.

Be proud of this win!

PROST!
