HOMEBREW CLUB MEETINGS
Keystone Hops Meeting in Montgomeryville: Thursday, January 19, 7:00PM (tomorrow!)
Lehigh Valley Homebrewers Meeting at the Steelgaarden in Bethlehem: Tuesday, January 31, 7:30PM
Come to one of the club meetings at our stores, meet fellow enthusiasts and enjoy a variety of finely crafted homebrews. Montgomeryville brewers can compete in the club’s monthly informal homebrew competitions, and all attendees get to judge! This month, the style is Dark Lagers, and one beer will be selected to be sent to the AHA to compete in a national club-only competition. In November (our first time competing as a club), Aaron Fournier’s entry captured 2nd place! If you’d like to compete, please fill out this quick online form before the meeting: https://www.keystonehomebrew.com/2011/09/keystone-hops-club-competition-entry-form/
Entries should be submitted as either six 12-ounce bottles, four 16-ounce bottles, three 22-ounce bottles, one 64-ounce growler or a comparable quantity for the informal judging process. If you would like your entry to qualify for the national club-only competition, be prepared to submit two additional bottles to be sent to the AHA.
MONTGOMERYVILLE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: If you are available to help wrangle prizes for the War of the Worts homebrew competition, and have not yet gotten involved, please come to our Montgomeryville store tomorrow at 6:30PM (a half hour before the homebrew club meeting begins). Thanks!
