Meatball Con 2017

What is Meatball-Con? To break it down as simply as possible, it is a celebration of all forms of balled up meat. If you can dream it, you can ball it up in meat form. Meatball-Con will be held at the brewery and Mispillion is asking that you bring a can of food for the Food Bank. Will Crust & Craft repeat their “Number One Baller” status this year? That is up to you.
