Monthly Club Meeting - June 2018
We had a well attended meeting this month with 6 new beers to try. New members in attendance included Paul, returning; Katie and Lee, new. Welcome!
Mary announced upcoming events Septembeerfest for home brewers and the Tampa Bay Homebrew Invitational at Rapp’s in November. Some of our members are entered into outsided Competitions, Wilds is finishing up this month. See the beer_calendar list on this website's Calendar page.
Rob, Pete, and Dean earned intra-club competition wins. Just submit 3 beers for judging over the next three months to participate. Get some expert feedback on your brews and who knows, you might even win a prize, like a gift card to Stein & Vine!
Obrien's, our meetings host, is having a beer dinner featuring Coppertail, Monday at 7pm for $45 per person. It's a multiple course meal with beer samples for each course!
Ryan presented his Munich brew and showed us his 2-cooler/pump brewing system. This is yet another excellent example of how inventive our club members are at designing, building, and brewing!
The six beers we tasted included Marys sours; a lingonberry berliner made with Good Belly, and a Guava gose with pink salt. My Fergalicious London Brown was well received with suggestions for minor changes in fermentation temperature. Robs American Porter made with a Grainfather was a treat! Andrew's Porter was just his 3rd batch and he's off to a great start! Joes American Stout was true to style. Yum!
Special invitation from Barley's Angels to join them Sun, July 15 on the Brew Bus at noon. Come along for a fun afternoon!
New to brewing. So much to learn. Grateful to have this club's help!
