July Brewday

July’s brewday was a warm one. Five club members came out and sweltered with me as I brewed a Berliner Weiss. This beer will be a quick turn around and will be entered into the Limbo Challenge. The 15 minute boil kept the garage below 100 degrees while Matt, Mike, Marqus, Jimmy and a couple of neighbors stayed hydrated under the tents. Brian stopped by earlier before the hydrating beverages were being shared. Our next brewday will be in September.

July Brewday at Walter Hodges Saturday the 9th

There will be a Brewday at Walter Hodges this Saturday. Starts about 9am and ends about 3pm. Walter is brewing a Berliner Weiss. Lunch will be provided. Come out and share your homebrew or favorite commercial beverages.

It will be hot so be prepared to sweat. You should also bring a chair.

Walter’s address is:
2203 Le Mans Dr, Carrollton, TX
