This is the last summer meeting as the Fall Equinox inexorably approaches (9/22). So come celebrate the end of summer and embrace the fall. And well, if there is one plant that loves long days, and is sad to see them go, it is hops! Yes, those lovely plants know to yield their bounty to us as the days shorten. So our great and mighty Overpresidemporlord has declared a meeting to focus on these beautiful gems. Whether it is growing, drying, pelletizifying, storing under C02 or liquid nitrogen or any other hot hop topic, rest assured, it will be covered in scintillating detail.
This also from the divine Overpresidemporlord: Umm, yeah, Beer-on-the-fly Guy/Gal, like don't forget to bring your beer, or else! Or else what!??! There will be less beer.
Featured brewery is Wingman Brewers out of Tacoma. I enjoyed a few of their beers this summer. I am totally in love with their can art, being a bit of a WWII aviation buff. I am hoping for awesome swag, but will be pleased with just beer and getting to hear what they have to say.
The heart of the Overpresidemporlord cares not just for us, but for all folks. So we will be doing a "fill the keg" event to collect non-perishable food/toiletries/... to donate to local charities to help those who may have to choose between beer and eating or brushing.
The Style Sherpette will edumacate us and supply samples, I do hope it is some ridiculously hoppy styles...
As always, bring your amazing fermented creations, snacks, food and smiling sparkling selves and let's have a great meeting.
When: Friday, September 19th, 19:00 - 21:00
