September 2021 Lehigh Valley Homebrewers Newsletter

Greetings Brewers! Happy Fall everyone! Time to finish off those light summery beers and fill those kegs with pumpkin beer! (or not!)

This month's meeting is this Tuesday and we'll be visiting Andrew and Brian, our own "graduates" of Lehigh Valley Homebrewers at 5 Maidens Urban Cidery in South Bethlehem. I was blown away by the diversity of flavors and overall quality of their offerings. And I'm not generally a cider drinker!

Lehigh Valley Homebrewers made the residents of Easton a little happier last Sunday as they poured their craft creations for the 7th Annual Clam Jam festival. Congratulations to Larry Anders who was crowned the People's Choice winner with an English style Pale Ale. Congratulations to the judges's picks too, more on that below!

This month is the next event in the Homebrewer of the Year (HbotY) competition featuring sour and wild ales. Please RSVP so you can be assigned an entry number and bring your entry (2 bottles/cans) to the meeting on Tuesday. Depending on the number of entries, we'll judge on site or designate a separate judging event within the week.

Another opportunity to pour for the public is coming up on October 2nd with the Lehigh Valley Brewers Guild, 12-4PM in Emmaus Community Park. Unfortunately, as of right now we do not have enough interest in this event to participate. We need at least 5 brewers to represent the club. Please RSVP by the September meeting so the officers can tell the organizers if we are able to participate.

Finally, the club has been asked again if anyone can participate in the D-Town Brew Down beer festival and competition. Please see below and reach out to the organizers if you'd like to pour and compete at their charity event. I hope to see everyone on Tuesday.
