Big Brew for National Homebrew Day

  • 05/05/2012
  • 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • FH Steinbart Co

In honor of the AHA’s Big Brew on May 5th, homebrew clubs from around the country will all be getting together to brew in groups and we are doing ours at FH Steinbart Co.  You can participate by simply showing up because we will have many curious onlookers who would love to talk to real live homebrewers.  It would be even better if you came out and brewed a batch of beer though, and FH Steinbart has offered to give those brewers a 50% discount on their ingredients.   Our club’s standing policy is that any beer brewed as a demonstration qualifies for full reimbursement if you agree to bring half of your beer to a club meeting.  Effectively, your ingredients will be free if you take advantage of both these offers.


The AHA suggested recipes for the event are here.


Feel free to bring along some of your latest homebrew to let others sample and the club will be firing up the BBQ as well.


FYI: To get your 50% discount with FH Steinbart just let them know that it is for Big Brew when you make your purchase.  Save your receipt for OBC reimbursement if you decide to bring half of the beer to a meeting. 


FYI deux: If you plan on brewing, make sure to bring everything you will need.  FH Steinbart will only be providing access to water and electricity.



Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.


Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!


Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @ Brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org


Please support your club and plan on attending! Guests and visitors are welcome at all "In" Meetings!
