The February meeting’s topic will be all about HOPS. For anyone who knows me, this is one of my favorite subjects. I will be doing a presentation outlining hop varietals and characteristics, hop chemistry, different ways to use hops, and growing your own hops. I will also be serving different varieties of hop teas to evaluate hop aromas/tastes and giving away a couple ounces of hops from my private hop collection.
Review the Brew
We will be bringing back the Review the Brew segment back this month and I would like some volunteers to submit their brews. Since the theme is hops this month, I encourage anyone who has a slightly hop forward brew to volunteer (ESB, Pale ale, English and American IPA, American Amber or Brown). I’d like to showcase different hoppy varieties.
A couple of us will be working at the War of the Worts competition, so I hope to have a complete update of the ALEiens results and how the competition went.
