Tomorrow is Groundhog Day, and Baltibrew will meet at Jon Blair’s house to brew several beers (Chocolate Milk Stout, Ned Rye-erson IPA, and an Mexican-American Lager).
Mike Pietropaoli will be doing the Rye-PA Brew-In-A-Bag style. If you’re unfamiliar with that unique process, this would be a great opportunity to learn all about it.
Jon has also invited members to bring their own rigs, and brew alongside him.
As usual, bring food and beer to share. Brew day starts at 10 a.m. sharp.
AHA Philly Conference (a.k.a. the National Homebrewer’s Conference, June 27–29) tickets go on sale Tuesday afternoon (February 5th), and hotel bookings begin that morning. To register, you must be an AHA member. Sign up if you haven’t already, and intend to purchase tickets.
Much like our own Guild Holiday Party, this will sell out incredibly fast. Baltibrew, and many other Maryland clubs plan to attend the event. Philly is reputedly woefully under-represented on the homebrew front; the Free State intends to take up their slack.
We will send out a reminder prior to opening of sales to buy your tickets, but we’d very much like to have an idea who from Baltibrew plans to go so we can organize rideshares, hotel roommates, etc. Sound off in the comment thread of this post if you’re planning to go, please.
Barley Legal III
Last but not least…
In conjunction with Wootown, Baltibrew has agreed to participate as co-organizers of the Barley Legal homebrew competition to be held March 23rd. More details on that to come, but keep it in mind for your brew scheduling.
