Coming up on November 5th is our annual Learn to Brew day at Barley John’s Brew Pub in New Brighton. We will start the activities at 10am with various brewing demos including partigyle brewing, prizes and lots of homebrew to share! Bring friends who have never brewed and they may walk away with a homebrew equipment setup!
Also at the learn to brew event is our annual Cider buy…we are purchasing up to 500 gallons of fresh pressed, un-pasteurized cider. This cider is fantastic for fermenting and club members have taken home LOTS of awards using it. The Cider will be $4 per gallon and must be reserved and paid for in advance. Contact Dave Matson for more information. Look for the separate announcement in the next couple of days to pay for and reserve your cider!
There will also be a presentation by Jason Dayton, who is a homebrewer and Founder of Lionheart Cider titled “Home Brewing to Distribution in Six Months for Less Than $50,000”. In his presentation, you will learn how Lionheart launched their first alcohol brand in under six months while still going in college and for less than $50,000. Jason will cover the origin of Lionheart but also specific steps if any home brewer / future entrepreneur wants to follow in their steps. Jason will also be around for the afternoon if you have questions about cider or the beer industry in general.
Look for more information on Learn To Brew Day coming soon in the upcoming weeks but make sure to block off your calendar now!
