Join us for our July meeting, Tuesday the 26th at 7pm. (RSVP on Facebook)
As you know, July’s meeting does not have a guest speaker and thanks to the encouragement of Eric and Cori, I would like to suggest a round robin style beer judging! If you’re interested in bringing a beer, please sign up here and let us know how many beers you’d like to include. The only limitation is time and number of judges.
If you’d like to participate:
Please supply 2 bombers of any beer you’d like judged.
Please join us for a fun filled evening of food, fun beers and a fantastic guest speaker: Brewmaster, Brian Lutz
Who is Brian Lutz you say?
Brewmaster Brian Lutz is obviously no rookie when it comes to brewing. The three time medal winner at the GABF has a passion for aggressive, big beers.
Brian did the recipe formulation for Dale's Pale Ale, which was the first beer at Oskar Blues (in 1998).
“Brian is one of those guys who has a 100% integrity rating in the craft beer business.
Troy from AC Golden will be our Guest Speaker (Thank you Dan R) he will discuss lagers
Coby will also be speaking about Wood Aged Beers. This is a carry over from last month.
come one come all, bring your friends and we'll have a great time!
Beer style of the month - IPA
The American IPA is a different soul from the reincarnated IPA style. More flavorful than the withering English IPA, color can range from very pale golden to reddish amber. Hops are typically American with a big herbal and / or citric character, bitterness is high as well.
