We’ll also have an opportunity to discuss the homebrew you bring for the Brewers Hall of Fame. Bring at least a six-pack or keg or two-liter bottle. You may always bring a lesser amount to share informally, but it just won’t qualify for the Hall of Fame
We began this program at the November meeting, and here’s what happened there …
Quite a few folks gathered around a Barley John’s picnic table, and four brewers took turns introducing their beers and passing them around. Before we passed each beer, the brewer gave the audience a description of the recipe and process. While the group sampled the beer, questions and comments were shared.
- Jon Hunter brought a California Common brewed with Northern Brewer hops that Jon’s friend had grown.
- Heath Rhodes shared a Pliney clone. (don’t try to say that ten times quickly, and don’t confuse it with a pine cone)
- Max Brummel, who had JUST joined the club, passed around some of his very first homebrew, a dark mild.
- Chris Smith had us sample two of his creations; the first was a German Alt made with all Styrian Golding hops, and the second a wheat wine.
Each brewer will receive credit for the category of beer shared. Soon we will have a special page on the website where you can see who has received credit for which styles. There is no minimum quality requirement–just a minimum QUANTITY requirement, and that’s so that we have enough for everyone at the meeting to get a good-sized sample.
