Sepetember 2015 – General Meeting: BJCP 4-7

Lager-CloseUpThe Beer Barons of Milwaukee invite you to attend our upcoming member meeting, Wednesday, September 23rd at our usual location, Cliffords Supper Club in Hales Corners.

The September meeting will be a homebrew meeting ($5) featuring more lager beer deliciousness. Our own Brian Joas will be talking European lager BJCP categories 4 – 7.  We’ll have ten different homebrew examples from these categories for you to sample including some styles you may have never tasted before.  Each brewer will talk a little bit about their beer so make sure to ask any questions or provide feedback.  We’ll be providing placemats and sampling cups for anyone who would like to do a side-by-side evaluation of each style.  We want this to be as interactive as possible so I encourage anyone who is interested in these styles to read up on them before the meeting.

This month we are specifically looking for a couple of non-malt-forward homebrews for the meeting.  If you have something hop-forward, barrel-aged or otherwise non-European lager like we would encourage you to consider bringing it to the meeting. As alway we’d like each member who brings a keg to talk a little about the beer you’re sharing. This allows you to better showcase your homebrew as well as receive constructive feedback from the club.  If you bring a keg (or enough bottles to share) to the meeting and email the board in advance to let us know what you are bringing, we will give you $20 for your ingredients.  Please e-mail officers@beerbarons.org  and let Josh know directly at stru0087@gmail.com so we can have adequate serving equipment on hand.
