The night is dark…

Here we go again. June club meeting is on this Wednesday, June 19 from 7 pm at The Wheaty. Our guest will be Dermott from BeerCo. He’s making the trip over from Melbourne with a suitcase full of samples to guide the theme of the night which is, where is homebrewing going and how does the Australian market fit into the worldwide picture when it comes to getting new and fresh ingredients and the latest brewing equipment.

Have your questions ready about how you get your hands on all the stuff you read about and what are the trends at the moment.

A few weeks ago BeerCo also supplied us with one of their all grain porter kits with a new variety of hop that’s just hit the market that is purported to impart coconut flavours. We’ve got that beer brewed and ready for tasting.

If anyone else has a beer they’d like to share, let us know. If you’ve just got one bottle, bring it along for beer bingo and leave with someone else’s beer.

We’re also welcoming your friends this month, so if you’ve got a friend who’d be interested in coming along please invite them.
