COFFEE & Iron Brewer Final Tasting
4/29/14 at 7:30pm
-Club member Garrett Williams, from Pour Richard's Coffee, will be talking about all things coffee! In his talk, he will discuss coffee origins and terroir, coffee roasting, and finally, preparation techniques and how they will affect a brew (beer). Drawing correlations between artisanal coffee and home brewing, he hopes to bring your next coffee beer to the next level! There will be coffee samples and we'll be infusing some brews with coffee using the DFH Randall Jrs. Garrett has been in the specialty coffee industry for over ten years. Currently, he is working as the director of Education and Events at Pour Richards Co. in Devon, PA.
-We will be judging the two final brews of our in-house competition, IRON BREWER! This will come down to a best-of-brew between the two finalists Mike Grippi & Jeff Louella. I hope you all like El Dorado hops & Kumquats!!

-REVIEW THE BREW: Is anyone interested in having their beer reviewed by the club? 3-4 bottles seems to be plenty to split between us all. Just bring them & we'll review your brew after the main speaker!
