The Zymurgists of the Ozarks, a community of homebrewers based in the Ozarks region, recently made a donation of $125 to Rare Breeds Youth Services. The donation was made possible through the proceeds raised from the Rare Breeds Home Brew competition organized by the club.

The Zymurgists of the Ozarks is a group of passionate homebrewers who share a love for the craft of brewing beer. The club is known for its commitment to using locally sourced ingredients and promoting sustainability in the brewing process. The Rare Breeds Home Brew competition is an annual event organized by the club to showcase the creativity and talent of homebrewers in the region.

This year’s competition saw a record number of entries, with participants from all over the Ozarks region submitting their best brews for judging. The competition showcased newer styles that are less prominent in the traditional home brewing competitions. Included were historical beer styles, local styles and styles that are lesser known. The judging panel consisted of experienced homebrewers and industry professionals who evaluated each entry based on factors such as aroma, flavor, and overall quality.

However, the real winners of the competition were the youth served by Rare Breeds Youth Services. The organization provides crucial support and resources to young people who are facing challenges such as homelessness, poverty, and unemployment. The $125 donation made by the club will help to support the organization’s important work.

The donation is a testament to the generosity and community spirit of the Zymurgists of the Ozarks. By organizing the Rare Breeds Home Brew competition and donating the proceeds to a worthy cause, the club has demonstrated its commitment to using its passion for brewing to make a positive impact in the community.

In conclusion, the Zymurgists of the Ozarks’ donation to Rare Breeds Youth Services is an inspiring example of how communities can come together to support important causes. The Rare Breeds Home Brew competition is more than just a showcase of brewing talent; it is a celebration of community, creativity, and generosity.
