2013 Summer Bottleshare Blowout
Thanks to everyone who attended the clubs first Summer Bottleshare Blowout on Saturday August 13th. A special thanks to Ken Duffy for hosting the event and Keith ‘Chico’ Primeaux for organizing. The event had an excellent turn out with over 25 members and guests sharing excellent food and sampling over 60 different commercial beers.
Single Hop Brew Project
At the group brew in July several brewers decided they would like to brew the same single hop beer recipe with the only difference being each brew would use a different hop. The base recipe has been chosen and we’ve had 16 brewers sign up. The plan is to have the beers available on tap at the annual club gumbo cook off in December
If you haven’t signed up and would like to participate let us know.
