Meeting Media – Denny Conn Presentation

If you weren’t able to make it to our July meeting, you missed an excellent presentation by Denny Conn. Thanks again to Denny for taking the time to come visit us, talk to us about recipe formulation and take our questions. Another big thanks to Baron Jonathan Ettlie with Craft Meister for bringing Denny out to Milwaukee.

Here are the media files from the meeting for your enjoyment and education. Cheers!

Meeting Podcast – Usingers Sausage and Beer Pairing

Dave Mueller from Usinger’s Sausage will be our guest for our first ever “Usinger’s sausage and Milwaukee craft brew pairing.”  We’ll be sampling various Usinger’s sausages along with beers from Milwaukee area craft brewers.  The brewers at Sprecher, Lakefront, MKE Brewing Co., Brenner and St. Francis Brewing have been gracious enough to hand select the beers for this pairing.  In addition, Chef Don Walsh Jr. of The Blue Heron Supper Club in Big Bend, WI. and Chef Scott Mattfeld of Quarry Catering in Lannon, WI. are busy designing prepared sausage samplers around these beer selections (does chicken sausage wrapped in apple wood smoked bacon sound good?).

Meeting Podcast – Bill Tressler – Hinterland

Bill Tressler, owner of Hinterland Brewing & Gastropubs as guest speaker.  Hinterland Gastropub continues to be one of the most highly rated restaurants in Milwaukee and they have also been collaborating with local craft brewers and retailers recently so this should be a very interesting meeting. We’ll be sampling some of Hinterland’s year-round, seasonal and taproom-only beers.

Meeting Podcast – Dean Coffey – Ale Asylum

We keep the Madison brewery theme going when Dean Coffey, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of Ale Asylum joins to talk about the recent brewery expansion and all things Ale Asylum. Be sure not to miss this one as there might be a beer or two to sample which you won’t currently find on shelves.

Another great session with Dean as he talks answers our many questions about Ale Asylum and brewing.
