Return of the Third Thursday

Once upon a time THIRSTY people met on the third Thursday of the month. This gathering was to get out and sample commercial craft/import beer available in the area. The venue was ever changing and the single requirement was a tap list offering of craft or import beer. With Iowa City having a brewery (Big Grove Brewery and Taproom) and Coralville boasting 3 (Guildwurst (Boot’n Flute), Reunion Brewery and Backpocket), plus the plethora of Iowa beer on tap around town, it is time to renew this THIRSTY event.

  • April 19 7pm – Guildwurst Tavern
  • May 17 7pm Reunion Brewery
  • June 21 7pm Backpocket Brewery
  • July 19 7pm TBD
  • August 16 7pm TBD 

October Meeting

John P. will be hosting the October meeting Tuesday, Oct. 4
at 7:00 PM. He will give a brief talk about his experience with setting up a
full-size indoor electrically-fired boiling kettle using a 240 volt
induction cooktop. This may be of interest to anyone who is considering
building an indoor brewhouse with winter approaching.
