ALE Club meeting June 2018

The next meeting is coming up quickly. It will be Thursday June 21, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30pm at Stone Arch Brewpub in the tap room.

The beer styles of the month are Cream Ales, Hefes, Wheat, Kolsch, Blond and American Light Lagers! I guess you could say it is the month of light, yellow, fizzy beer. Feel free to bring a homebrewed versions of these styles, if you have one. You are also welcome to bring a commercial versions as well. Any other homebrews are also welcome.

We came up with a menu of beer styles for each month, which are listed below:

June: Cream Ale and Hefes and Wheat and Kolsch and Blondes and American Lighter Lagers
July: APAs IPAs
August: Sours and Fruit
September: Oktoberfest, Scottish Ale, Brown Ale
October: Belgians and Saisons
November: Pumpkin and Spiced Beer
December: Food Pairing Party

We encourage everyone to brew the style of the month of their choosing then bring it to that month’s meeting.

Cheers

We are resurrecting the Iron Brewer Home brew competition. The ingrediant that you all must use is dried Elderberries. This is not a BJCP event. Throw caution to the wind, and get creative! The Competition will be held tentatively  in November. Date to follow. If anyone wants to host Please let Brandon or Cindy know. This is not limited to beer!! You can make wine, or cider or meade or beer. Have Fun!!
