April Meet: Guest Speaker Announced

We're pleased to announce that for our third meet on Thursday 26th April, a brewing contingent from Ilkley Brewery Co. will be joining us. In contrast to the last meetings Barley Wine master class, the subject matter of Ilkley's talk will be on brewing low gravity, hop-forward beers, and for those who want to take part to then go away and put it into practice.  In a similar format to the Revolutions Brewing Co. competition, the brewer of the best beer (judged by Ilkley) will be invited over to their brewery for a brewday.

If you would like to join us, and for those of you who plan to bring beer, please can you let us know by commenting on this post.

They venue is Mr Foleys and I'll post a runnning order nearer the date, although it will read much the same as last time, be there to start for 7pm.

April Meet Up: Call For Dates

This is an advance call for dates for our April meet. Thursday's 19th or 26th are the preferred dates, and we have another interesting guest lined up. I know April is a way off, but if you could respond with your preference then we can confirm with the guest.

Similar format to the other meetings - 6 people presenting their beers to the group, with the option of bringing along bottles to try after the more structured bit of the night.

So, if anyone has beers that they'd like to bring along to present to the group, let us know below. We'll use the same format of first come first served, but if the number of beers goes beyond 6, we'll draw lots on the night.

Venue: Mr Foleys.

More details to follow nearer the date.
