There are several breweries in CT that might be able to help you find information and volunteers and what not. There's the Thomas Hooker Brewery in Windsor, the Olde Burnside Brewing Co. in East Hartford, the Willimantic Brewery in Willimantic, and I believe there's one in Woodbridge too. Oh, and don't forget BAR in New Haven. Just Google. Hope that helps.
BTW, I'd be happy to judge if I can make it. I don't have any judging experience, but I know how to taste and appreciate!
Girl, you thought he was a man, but he really was a muffin....
