November 2022 Lehigh Valley Homebrewers Newsletter




Greetings Brewers! The club officers are trying to finalize our planning for the rest of the year. It would be really helpful if you click on the following events and RSVP for each you plan on attending. Particularly for the Holiday Party, we need to get some idea on group size and how many would be interested in adding on a premium whiskey tasting at Red Stag. Please click the event for details.


1. RSVP here if you are entering the "Belgian" HBotY challenge (we need to know your beer style):

2. RSVP here if you plan on attending the Keystone event this weekend. (we need to know if you plan on serving beer; it doesn't have to be an HBotY entry.)


3. RSVP if you are able to attend the Holiday Party so we can get a headcount:



This month's meeting will be on the 29th - We'll return to one of the OG craft breweries in the LV - Hijinx!



I'd like to thank everyone who came out for Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day on Saturday - we had great weather, great food, and one hell of a beer share. Special thanks to our hosts, Chris and Tiffany Becker and to our grill master, Joe Kalinosky!


We've been invited to two beer festivals in January, so plan out that brew schedule to include some crowd pleasers. See below for more information.


Finally, a reminder that officer elections are slated for the November meeting. If you are interested in running for an office, please reach out to a current club officer. See you on the 29th!



Brew on!


John Litak

LVHb Club President




Future Meetings:






Meetings are open to anyone (21 and older) who home brews (beer, wine, cider, 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!
