Anyone who is attending the NHC is able to go to Club Night. If you are an ALEien, you will need to be available to pour beers for attendees.  We'll have a sign up sheet the night of Club Night for time frames of who is pouring at what time.  You'll all be able to pour beers to attendees and walk around and enjoy the night!

    • 3 Saisons
      • Past: 3-4.5%

Please sign up below, and let us know: 1) what you're brewing; 2) how much you're brewing (if it's not mentioned, we'll assume 5gal/entry).

Naked Brewing has offered to force-carb any kegs, so this is a great opportunity for some of you to get into kegging. All  you need to buy right now is a ball-lock corny, and we'll get it carbed for you.

I did drop off, just didn't know if this is the "official" list and did not see my name on there, then realized I was remiss in notifying anyone of anything I was doing.

Comment by Matthew Knuttel on June 19, 2013 at 12:11pm

i thought john did drop it off.  ill add it to the list though

Comment by Scott Mangold on June 19, 2013 at 10:57am

I've been bleeding the gas from the keg pretty frequently.  Hopefully it won't take too much longer to get it to its appropriate level. 

I will drop off the keg at NCB this Friday if all goes as planned. 

Comment by Jessica Streeter on June 19, 2013 at 10:46am

Scott - you can definitely fix an over-carbed keg pretty easily. If you still want to submit it, just let us know!

John - if you want to bring it, feel free.

And natalie lied a bit about the quality of the beer. There were a few that were so horrendous they need to be moved to my basement...for...containment..and eventual destruction.. The things I do for the good of this club.

Comment by John Yeomans on June 19, 2013 at 10:33am

Never posted here, sorry.  1 keg - Past Saison ~ 3.8% (if needed)

Comment by Jeff Louella on June 19, 2013 at 9:35am

Scott, just bleed the carbonation off.  Let gas out. Let some more out. until it is carbed correctly. Easy fix. 

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 19, 2013 at 8:40am
Great news, everyone's beer tasted delicious! We can't wait!!

Comment by Scott Mangold on June 18, 2013 at 10:03pm

I over-carbonated my keg, so I didn't bother dropping it off at either location.

It looks like the Cherry Tripel is out...

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 16, 2013 at 11:51pm
We are not allowed to bring food into the PACC.

Comment by Jeffrey Lewis on June 16, 2013 at 6:55pm

Is ALEiens providing food for energy?

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 14, 2013 at 6:19pm
Awesome Jeff. Yes, I believe we will need that much time to unload all the cars, put together the draft system, hang 4 banners, ice down kegs and system, gather all of the kegs, etc. A 12 tap system and 24+ kegs is a lot :)

Comment by Jeffrey Lewis on June 13, 2013 at 6:51pm

     Yes, the new 'member' is much better.  (A better one would be a flying-saucer ;)

     At this point it looks like I won't be starting a new career before the NHC so I'll be going to it.  This means that I will be there to assist with the set-up, pour, and break-down on Club Night (stop jumping up and down with joy...unless you record it and put it on u-tube).

     Do you really think it's going to take three hours to set up or are you just making sure we have enough time?

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 10, 2013 at 3:12pm

Jeff L- better? haha... trying...

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 10, 2013 at 3:02pm

It mean's you are a paid member.  Fancy, huh?  Trying to make it less obtrusive.

Glenn- you can drop off your cases at NCBC or Naked BC.  Please make sure to label EACH case with the NHC labels found on the "Labeling Your Keg" page.  Tape up the bottom of each case well and we'll tape the top after we taste one (you can just leave 1 bottle out and tape up the tops too if you want. 

Comment by Jeffrey Lewis on June 9, 2013 at 7:33pm

Okay, I'll ask: What's with the orange circle with the lightning bolt in the center?

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 9, 2013 at 6:01pm

Patrick, that would be great! Thank you.  

Arrival time at the PA Convention Center is 5pm for setup on Friday 6/28, Club Night starts at 8pm.

Comment by Patrick Costello on June 7, 2013 at 1:48pm

If still needed, I'm kegging a saison (present) tonight. I can drop off to naked uncarbed early next week. Also I can help with the setup just need to know where to meet up.

Comment by Natalie DeChico on June 7, 2013 at 11:38am
Neshaminy Creek Brewing: 909 Ray Ave, Croydon
Wed-Thurs 4-7; Fri-Sat 12-7; Sun 12-5; however, there are there brewing during the day M-F, so you can also drop off then, they'll just be busy brewing!

I'm waiting on an email back about the bottles, Glenn.

Comment by Steve "Brother Wheels" Wieland on June 7, 2013 at 9:40am

Sorry I meant I can have it over to NCBC.. not sure what the other N was for!!! BTW - is NCBC open SUndays?

Comment by Steve "Brother Wheels" Wieland on June 7, 2013 at 9:36am

I have 5 gallons of GLUTEN FREE IPA that I can force carbonate and have over to NCNBC on 6/16. Want it?? I'd love to help set up, but I am on crutches with a broken ankle :-) Steve
