Countdown to ARToberfest: Thirsty Thursday

Just a few weeks left till ARToberfest! We are excited to see everyone on October 5th and enjoy some wonderful beers. By far, the highlight of the night will be the Homebrewer Competition, where our local brewers will compete for a $500 grand prize! The winner will be decided by popular vote and be crowned "King" of the event!

Some of the brewmasters who will be participating have already been featured on this blog, and we will introduce you to more in the coming weeks. This year the competition will be sponsored by local business Devine Wines and Spirits, located at 2653 S Service Road West in Ruston.


Devine hosts wine tastings and and provides a wide selection of wines, spirits, and brews to the area, so it is no surprise that they wanted to be involved in ARToberfest.
