This event is in the past.
The club's February, 2015 meeting will be held at Pittsburgh's newest craft brewery - Spoonwood Brewing in Bethel Park on Sunday, February 22nd at 2:00 PM.
Please RSVP here if you plan to attend.
This brewery is so new, in fact, that they're not even open yet! But they will be opening soon, and business will be in full swing come February.
Spoonwood will be a brewpub and restaurant centered around a 15BBL brewhouse run by Brew Master Steve Ilnicki, known to many of us for his work as a brewer at Rock Bottom in the Waterfront.
The folks at Spoonwood are excited to be hosting us, and we're excited to get to check the place out. So come check out the new space, get a tour of the brewhouse from Steve, and come thirsty. Come hungry as well, because Spoonwood is building their kitchen around a woodfired pizza oven. There is no cover charge for this event, but please plan to buy some food and a pint or two to show our support and to thank them for hosting us.
As always, please bring homebrew to share with the rest of us - bottles, growlers, whatever. You'll be among fellow brewers who can give you whatever level of feedback you're looking for, but mostly it's just great to share your creation with others who appreciate it.
In addition to the normal club business portion of the meeting and the brewery tour and the homebrew sharing (and buying Spoonwood beer & food), we'll have a techinical presentation/discussion. Competition ringer Andy Weigel will be discussion how to brew beer for competitions. This information is useful to anyone looking to figure out how to brew beer to style, how to put your best foot forward in competitions, or just where to begin if you've never competed before. Not everyone cares about entering competitions or winning medals, but even those just looking to brew better beer for their own consumption will take away some useful pointers.
See you there!
