Beerstock 5060 Update
Member, Brian Tetreault shared new information on this year’s Beerstock event.  It will take place at the same location on Aug 5th.  The theme this year is based on the movie Strange Brew.   Clubs will need to start working on theme ideas for the booth.  The plan is to show up before noon to set up the booth and the event should kick off around 3pm.  Members can stay in a tent, bring a camper/trailer, or make it a day trip; Camping is encouraged especially if you do not have a designated driver. Any money made goes to the Rotary.  Any left over is donated to Polio Plus and those funds are matched by Bill Gates. Updates will continue to be posted on the Beerstock Slack channel.

News from the Shop

Chris is offering the opportunity to brew with a kit provided by him (no cost to you).  This beer is to be brewed on your system, at the shop.  You will be taking it home for fermentation. 

  • When finished, samples will be made available for Chris to evaluate. Given a favorable review, he would then consider brewing the beer on his system and making it available for sale in the shop. Chris is looking for 5 gallon sample batches to be brewed.  If you’re interested, let him know and he’ll hook you up with batch ingredients.  Chris is requesting that batches are brewed on Saturdays in the shop.
  • Focus will primarily be on extract batches with some specialty grains.  There will be some all grain batches as well.
