Great Meeting Last Night

The September homebrew club meeting last night was a tie for the largest attendance - 21 of us showed up to the Coney for an enjoyable evening. In all, there were 7 beers, 2 meads, and a cider to try. John Cucarro was one of our new members last night, who is organizing the Oktoberfest for Downtown Indiana. This event will be held on Sat. Sep 29 on North 7th St from 2-6pm. Tickets are $25 in advance, and will get you a bratwurst sandwich, three beers from Church Brew Works, several small tastes of other Church beers, live music, and much more. In addition to the membership last night, we also hosted Heather from the Indiana Gazette. She stayed for almost two hours talking to several members about their homebrewing experiences, beer styles, etc. Look for her article in the Sun Sep 30 'leisure' section. See you next Month

June's Club Meeting

This month's meeting will be held at The Coney at 8pm. Our discussion this month will center around the pros and cons of traditional all-grain sparge methods (fly & batch) versus a no-sparge method. Reminder: The next club competition is set for the August meeting, where everyone is invited to bring a Scottish ale (any weight) ... but no Scotch ales.

Porter Competition

On Tuesday, February 21, the club met at PA BBQ for the porter competition. Eighteen club members came and over two hours we tasted 10 different variations of porter - from traditional, lighter brown porters (or London porters) to coffee porter to smoked porter to robust porter.

A big thanks to Ray for opening up his restaurant to us after hours and for providing some great barbecue and snacks to enjoy while tasting.

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, March 13 at 8pm at the Coney.

February's Club Meeting Moved to 21st

Because of conflicting schedules for many of our members due to Valentine's Day - our February club meeting (porter competition!) will be postponed one week. We will meet on Tuesday, February 21st at 8pm at PA BBQ (South 6th St.) to enjoy a host of porters.
