Beer Quest is partnering with the Beer Army Foundation scholarship program. There will be a silent auction at the festival. The Beer Army Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit community outreach organization that promotes education, volunteerism and economic impact. In 2015, the Beer Army Foundation awarded 13 scholarships to aspiring degree seeking students and the foundation plans to give away at least 15 more this year. Contributions through the silent auction are deductible in accordance with current tax law.
