Big Brew 2017

Big Brew 2017 will be held on May 6th.

Big Brew 2017 bannerSpook invited us to brew at his place on that day, so we’ll meet there and brew up a storm.

This will be a club member only event (you may bring a guest, but we are not advertising the location.  All members are welcome, so if you need directions to Spook’s place, contact Chad or Steve and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Please RSVP if you can make it, so we can get a count for food and treats.  Click here to RSVP via Doodle.

We’ll brew a club batch of one of the Big brew recipes, and you are welcome to bring your equipment and brew outside of the garage.  There is plenty of room indoors for the club brew, but we won’t have a tent outside for other brewers, so plan accordingly if the weather is bad.

We hope to see you there.
