Cider Buy & Learn to Brew


Event Details


All MHBA club members are encouraged to BRING A FRIEND who might want to Learn to Brew to this event. We will have 4-6 brewers using all different types of homebrew systems, and we will have a drawing for COMPLETE brewing setups! COME EARLY to buy a slice of Barley John’s famous Egg-Bake-Thingy ™.

The weather is getting colder, the leaves are starting to fall. That means it’s time to make Cider! Once again MHBA members are able to purchase fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apple cider from a local orchard and pick it up on November 2nd at our AHA Learn to Brew Day / Club Cider Buy event at Barley John’s. The quality of the juice is amazing and has helped numerous club members produce some amazing award-winning cider. Live demonstrations of cider making, cider evaluation and homebrewing will be going on throughout the event. Barley John’s will be making their annual “Cider-Buy Eggbake” that is soooooo delicious! Do yourself a favor and buy yourself a couple of pieces and wash it down with a pint of BJ’s beer – support our wonderful hosts!
As usual, initially the fresh-pressed cider will be available for pre-purchase only to MHBA club members. As we get closer to distribution day we may open that up to non-members. The cider is available in 5-gallon quantities and runs $25 for 5 gallons. The MHBA members can purchase it on the club website here: https://mnbrewers.com/cider-payment/
