This month’s activity: Brewers-In-Arms Beer Tasting
This month, we’ll be tasting the results from each team project! Remember that in November, we assigned teams based on five countries or regions to our panel of 20 intrepid brewers. These masters of malt then set out in teams of four to execute their mission: to brew the “perfect” indigenous Pale Ale – basically, following the 10A American Pale Ale style guideline, and using only (1) Base malt, (1) Crystal-type malt, (1) specialty malt of their choosing, plus hops and yeast, all of which are native to their assigned region.
Join us next month to hear more from Teams America, England/UK, France/Belgium, Germany, and Southern Hemisphere — we’ll learn what ingredients they chose, how they sourced them, and we’ll get to taste the final result from each team! Many of the teams are bringing more than one variation of their beer!
Whose beer will reign supreme? Your vote will decide!
But wait – There’s more!!!

THANK YOU to all of our officers, and especially our 2014 Club President, Britt Weiser, for your service! The Lagers celebrated our 21st year as a club with a bang! We executed a highly successful first-year homebrew competition, showed great representation in other important regional homebrew competitions, meanwhile we all gained access to a rich depth of technical instruction and knowledge at our meetings throughout the year. We commend you all for a job well done! Also, a tremendous thank you to Brian & Janet Allison for opening their home to us and hosting the Pot-Luck again this year, we are truly lucky to be welcome there & hope that the clean-up wasn’t too tough!
