Brewmeet #2 went well, we had 8 members show up at the People’s tasting room Saturday the 5th. We talked about keeping barleywine for several years, barrel aging beers, and a little bit about the new BJCP style changes.
Our next Brewmeet will be Friday July 11th, 6pm at Lenahan’s in downtown Lafayette. Show up wearing your THC shirt if possible and have some beers with friends and talk about beer. If you are not yet a THC member and are interested about in homebrew, stop by and meet us.
