May Beer Meeting - Pico Brew - May 15th

As always, the Joint Aler meeting will be chock full of Good Stuff (TM).

  • We will have Annie Johnson (2013 Homebrewer of the year) coming to talk to the club about the automagical picobrew zymatic brewing system. See the Aler Facebook page for a great pic of Angie using one of these bad boys.
  • The Euell Gibbons pine tree challenge edition of FeBr (Iron Brewer) is up.  What does a beer with spruce tips and pine nuts taste like? Well, come on down and find out!  And man up, umm, I mean person up and volunteer to take on the next FeBr challenge.
  • Word on the street is that His Mighty Emminence, The One, The Only, The Overpresidemporlord has frowned about the Style Sherpa's massive cost overrun last month on Sours (but also greatly enjoyed) and has given the lightly rebuffed Sherpa a budget of $13.98 USD for this month. So, we will be sampling light lagers and doing a taste challenge.  Can you tell the difference between Coors Light and club soda? Or Miller High Life and PBR? And while this is a much maligned style, it is very difficult to brew well. Hot tips on brewing this quaffable quencher so you can have some of your own light suds for the summer. Larryweizer anyone?
