Hello Treefort (and specifically Alefort) fans!

Introducing "FortFort" an adult fort building competition that you can do at home! You have the whole weekend to work on your fort and post your picture on the  Boise Beer Buddies  Facebook page for it to be voted on.

Please also share what local beer you are drinking whilst building your fort!

Specific Details:

+Fort building: Friday, March 27 through Saturday, March 28

+Participating breweries will vote on their favorite Sunday, March 29

+The 3 finalists' pictures will be reposted on Monday, March 30th and be voted on by 'likes' to determine the winner

+Winner Announced Tuesday, March 31st!

+Each participating brewery is sponsoring prize items so it is worth your time!

+No hammer and nails!... be creative and have fun! Let's see what ya'all can come up with.
