She joined the club several years ago after attending several meetings as a guest. She started with a desire to learn more about wine making, which she still enjoys doing today. A natural progression to attempt brewing beer was soon to follow. With much pressure and assistance from the club’s President, Missy was convinced to enter her first adventures into homebrewing in last years Sunshine Challenge where she was proud to except a Gold Medal for her first beer ever (a collaboration) and a Bronze Medal for her second attempt (solo). Continuing to learn more about the beer making process and improving is still a priority.After getting settled from relocation to the Mount Dora area, the brew kettles will soon come back to life for another year of brewing, competing, and drinking better beer!She has also volunteered for several club functions through the years and joined in to help out with various duties at the regular meetings.
