Join us for the second annual Nucleate Beer Festival.  We are bringing together a bunch of our awesome brewery friends from near and far to help us celebrate our anniversary.  Tickets will include 20 beer samplings and Nucleate Beer Festival tasting glass, as well as one bottle of Nucleate 2019 beer.  This year we brewed a 3-way collaboration with Speciation Artisan Ales and Transient Artisan Ales.  The beer is a fruited, mixed fermentaion sour that each ticketholder will be able to pick up at HOMES the week of the fest.   Profits from the fest will again be donated to our partners at A2A3 (
