War of the Worts Judges
If you are a BJCP judge we want you! Go to, register, and join in the fun. All our steward positions have been filled, thanks to everyone who already signed up.

Keystone Hops Club Meeting: Thursday February 19
Come help us organize the War of the Worts entries and load them into the cooler at Iron Hill. Oh yeah, and bring some homebrew!

Apple Brandy Barrels
We are due to receive a fresh supply of recently emptied Apple Brandy barrels. These barrels can be used for fermenting or aging beer or wine which will pickup some of the apple brandy flavor imbued in the wood. (We used them with great success for our Fall big brew in Montgomeryville.) Additionally these barrels make great decorative pieces, rain water collectors, tables, planters (great for rhizomes, get 2 from each barrel), shoot fish in them, fancy trash can, add suspenders and wear it, keep your pet monkeys, you get the idea.

1 barrel for $95
2 -3 for $90 each
4 or more for $85 each
Supplies will be limited so reserve today!

Ferment on!
