This is how I’m going to begin this post: DO NOT MISS THIS FESTIVAL.

To help celebrate that history of brewing, the always eager guys at 2nd Shift Brewing are putting on their third annual summer beer festival in New Haven, MO which they’ve dubbed the 2nd Shift and Friend 118th Annual Beerfest. The most important part of that title, with the exception of the “Beerfest” part, is “Friends.”

Being a craft brewery means being in a community of brewers that works together to create some great beer. So, 2nd Shift invited out a bunch of great breweries to have a party on July 5th from 1-5PM.  Here’s a list of breweries and vendors who plan to attend:
