North Greenbush, NY: Big Brew at Homebrew Emporium [#Homebrew]
Last weekend was the Big Brew event at homebrew shops all across the country to celebrate National Homebrew Day and I got to spend the morning at our local homebrew shop, The Homebrew Emporium. No brewing for me this year as I already had plans to to head to lunch at Crossroads but I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to check out the array of different hand-home setups, BS with the brewers and staff, and get my education on. (My first experience with homebrewing was *ahem* less than stellar.)
The beer they brewed on Saturday was Bucksnort Brown Ale and the ingredients for extract and all-grain were both provided gratis for all those who brought their own equipment to brew on site. Pretty badass. The recipes can be found here.
Nothing better than hanging out with a bunch of homebrewers to inspire you to get back into it after a little bit of a hiatus. Definitely going to go through the Brookyln Brew Shop Beer Making book to find an acceptable recipe to make and pick some ingredients tonight before they close at 7. See you guys before then!
