November/December Lehigh Valley Homebrewers Newsletter


Greetings Brewers!


Happy Holidays to everyone from LVHB! We wish you and your loved ones a safe, healthy and happy holiday season.


Thank you to all who tuned into our November Zoom Meeting on 11/ 24.


With cider season in the autumn, we talked a lot about cider production with LVHB alumni Andrew David and Brian Williams. They'll be opening their craft cidery, Five Maidens, on the south side of Bethlehem in 2021. You can check out their plans and ways to support them on their website, instagram and facebook pages, including their kickstarter campaign. We'll be posting their presentation in the forums.


Future Meeting Locations:

December 29 - Holiday Zoom Party (see details below)

January 26 - 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!

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS


LVHB Holiday Party - Tuesday, 29 December

Even though we can't get together in-person, we'd like to do the next best thing and have an expanded virtual tasting. For a $10 contribution per person, we'll pick out and purchase 4-6 (or more) special selections that we can enjoy together via zoom on Tuesday 12/29. The number of people participating will help determine the total number of bottles each person receives, but the club will kick in some funds to ensure the number and quality of selections.


If you're interested, please sign up on the event page by Friday, December 11th. We'll work out the details for distribution/pick up and have more info available later. The $10 will be collected via PayPal payment requests to those who RSVP.



Learn to Homebrew Day - Saturday, 07 November

Thanks to all of you who joined us at the Becker's place for Learn to Homebrew Day. The weather was great and we had a nice crowd of folks brewing and/or enjoying the day. And of course, as expected, things were set on fire.


Many thanks to the Beckers for hosting! We hope more of you can join us in May for our Big Brew event.
