Our next meeting will be held Tuesday, August 25th at 7:30 PM. Please RSVP here and we'll send you the Zoom link.
Style Deep Dive: 29A: Fruit Beer
Style Deep Dive: 26D: Belgian Dark Strong
Education session: Panel Discussion: Brewing with Fruit
Style Deep Dive: 21A: American IPA
Style Deep Dive: 27: Historical Styles: Gose
For the Style Deep Dives, it will be helpful to have a sample of the style to taste alongside the description. We are suggesting three beers that use the same fruit, blood oranges:
Belgian Dark Strong: Fegley's Orange Black
American IPA: 21st Amendment Blood Orange Brew Free Or Die
Gose: Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose
The beers can be found at Tanczo's (Bethlehem) and other stores. Fegley's beer will have to be purchased directly from them. Larger supermarkets should also have these or options in these styles. If you can't get these specific beers look for other fruit forward beers.
Future Meeting Locations:
September 29th @ TBD
Meetings are open to anyone (21 and older) who home brews (beer, wine, mead) or is interested in learning about home brewing. Our club has over 30 certified judges and several members who have "gone pro" by opening their own brewery, meadery, or distillery! - So bring your latest craft creation and get some constructive feedback and/or accolades!
Thanks to Joe Kalinosky, Bryan Hoke, and Dave Barber for leading the educational session on brewing with oxygen and the style deep dives at the July Meeting! Joe's presentation is located here:
