Homebrew Club News and Information

@ Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company

  This month's meeting will be held at Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company, located at 909 Ray Ave, Croydon, PA. We will be joined by a few other regional homebrew clubs, including Philly Homebrew, Barley Legal and Pale Ales.

  We’ll have a panel of NCBC brewers speaking to the group, brewery tours, and of course some great Neshaminy beers on draft. Dos Hermanos Tacos will be serving food from their truck in the parking lot and you are also free to bring in your own food. (There are several restaurants and pizza shops in the area.)

  Note an earlier start time this month: The taproom will open at 6:00pm and the meeting will begin at 7:00pm.

Other News:

 - We picked styles for Iron Brewer VII at the October meeting, but if you still wish to sign up, please see Sean Sliwinski or another club officer at the meeting.

 - This meeting is the final drop-off location for entries to our Monk Melee competition, which is scheduled for Saturday, December 3, 2016. Please contact John Yeomans if you have any questions or if you would like to volunteer as a judge or steward.

 - Save the date for our annual Holiday Beer Exchange. Note that we moved up this meeting one week to Tuesday, December 20.
