May Meeting

The May meeting is Tuesday, May 13

Something a bit different for the May meeting. Since it coincides with American Craft Beer Wee. We will gather at  Filmscene to watch the Beer Hunter Movie. The evening begins with a Beer Tasting on the roof-top garden hosted by 7G Distributing (at 4:30) followed by the movie at 6:30. Contact membership@thirstyhomebrew.org for information.


May is Mild month

May is designated as Mild month by CAMRA. Mild Ales can be categorized as Pale or Dark in color and in general are an average of 3.5% ABV. The BJCP categorizes Mild Ales (11A) in the English Brown Ale Category (11).

Both import and domestic versions are commercially available. I know Kalona Brewing Company has a mild on tap or maybe it is now on their handpump.

If anyone is interested in exploring this style, brew a mild and bring it to the May meeting (Tuesday, May 13)

April Meeting

The April meeting is Tuesday, April 8 at 7pm.

Nathan will be presenting a discussion of Scottish Ales.If you have a favorite commercial Scottish Ale, or your own brewed version you are welcome to bring it to the meeting to share. Susan will be the hostess.  Contact membership@thirstyhomebrew.org for directions.
