April 2017 Recap and Upcoming Events

Recap

We started the month as we do with a Taproom Takeover at Urban Growler. Turn out was low but its still good to have people come out to support our local businesses.

Rahr and BSG invited us out to Rahr Malting facilities for a tour. We had a few beers at the Stube and then toured the campus. It was amazing to see acres of barley going through the malting processes.

March 2017

Recap

We held our March meeting at Northern Brewer Minneapolis. Thanks to Northern Brewer for hosting us, and thanks to everybody that came out. We had a full house and that is really great to see.

 

BSG and Rahr teamed up to teach us about the history of Rahr and how brewing malts get from barley in the fields, to the bins at our homebrew shops. We really appreciate them coming out and I want to give a big thanks to Chris and Ilya for presenting.

 

The Club business discussions covered several topics as we progress through 2017 and approach the National Homebrew’s Conference here in Minneapolis. Remember to get your swag; for the conference and our other upcoming events. We currently have t-shirts @ $10, hats @ $15 and brewer’s shirts @50.

AHA Wort Rally

On Feb 12 we took part in the AHA Wort Rally at Surly Brewing Co. in Minneapolis. The Wort Rallies are always a good time, but this year had something a little extra: the wort given away this year is the  base wort for the 2017 HomeBrew Con Commemorative Beer.

We had great time meeting brewers from across MN, WI, IA and ND. There were some great ideas from different yeast strains, to fruit, hopping, and souring processes.
