November Club Meeting

The club will meet on Tues. Nov. 14, starting at 8pm at Benjamin's Restaurant. We'll be at our usual covered outdoor patio spot.

10th Anniversary Celebration

On Thursday, October 26, club members gathered at Levity Brewing Co. starting at 7pm to celebrate the club's 10-year anniversary. On hand were several beers brewed from the wort share, ranging from saisons and pale ales to stouts - quite a vast array from the same starting point that really showcased the talent and creativity of our members!

Also on hand was a sixtel of the barrel-aged stout collaboration. The best way to describe this was 'oaky Guinness', and we drank quite a bit of it. The remaining stout was taken by Levity to Beers of the Burgh the following weekend.

For a throwback ... here is an image of our announcement for the first even IPAs club meeting on Tuesday, October 23, 2007.
