Giving Back to the Community

Each year, the Urban Knaves of Grain Homebrew Club likes to give a little back to the community. This year, a portion of the competition proceeds will be donated to America's VetDogs® Service Dog program.

Americas VetDogs

The service dog programs of America’s VetDogs® were created to provide enhanced mobility and renewed independence to veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, allowing them to once again live with pride and self-reliance.
