May Big Brew Recap

Taking a break from a work conference here in Minneapolis and I can’t help but wonder how the little batch of all-grain Belgian Tripel I brewed at our May 15th Big Brew is doing at this moment. I’m sure it’s almost completely done fermenting and I’d bet it has developed some nice flavors to sip […]

May 6th, First Friday @ El Segundo Brewing Company

Hey PG! Who else had a great time at the Malloy’s place for April’s meeting??  Tumby’s Pizza was exceptional, Scott’s Belgian commercial tasting was perfect, Greg’s [sneaky] Pliny exBEERiment was eye opening, and the LABBC award ceremony was really fun. I probably owe Terry an apology for staying a lil’ too late, sorry about that […]

March Club Meeting Recap

Hey hey! So who else had a REALLY good time at our club meeting last Thursday?!     In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap. Michael Patterson brought out another round of off-flavor examples, one pitcher of “solventy” beer and another with “fruity” notes. The latter can be a good thing in certain […]

Is it April yet??!

Hey everyone, These past couple weeks have been such a wild ride and on behalf of the board I thank you all for coming along for the journey.  We had a sold-out Monsterbrew with Smog City Brewing Company, Rives, Barbara, Tania and I ran a home brewed soda booth at Phantom Carriage’s first anniversary party, […]

February Club Meeting Recap

Couldn’t make the meeting last night? Here’s what you missed! Michael Patterson and Greg Foster were at it again on the educational side of things at the start of the meet. Michael brought with him some great [sic] sun-soaked beer to give us a solid example of skunked, a definite off-flavor unless you work at […]

In case you missed it, here are a few photos (care of Lloyd) and a recap. Founder Lynne and the team at TW were […]
