I really love having our local home brewers join us on the Friday BeerBuzz….after all, the home brew clubs are the genesis not only for some amazing beers, but also for some future professional brewers. We’ve had the Wyoming Valley Home brewers join us before, so I was excited to welcome back Chuck Yarmey, but it was also fun to have Sean & Christina Wolfe from the Scranton Brewers Guild as well….and of course EVERYONE was in costume for Halloween!
The guys were with us to support the upcoming Teach a Friend to Brew Day, Nov 5th from 10AM-4PM. The event will be held at the new Breaker Brewing Co (Northampton & Lehigh St—Wilkes-Barre) and it will feature home brewing demonstrations, and all sorts of great info from the Scranton Brewers Guild, Wyoming Valley Home Brewers, Waldorf Beer Club, Tunkhannock Homebrew Club & Saaz Scranton club. Don’t forget, if you stop by you’ll also get a peek at the new Breaker Brewing facility in Wilkes-Barre Twp.
Speaking of Breaker Brewing, it was also a LOT of fun to break out the news about their new beers Coal Cracker, Susquehanna Sudds, Goldies Extra and maybe even Phoebe Snow…BUT perhaps the big breaking news of the day is that Breaker Brewing is aiming to have their Tap/Tasting room OPEN by the end of the year! Congratulations guys….I can’t wait!
We had a great time sampling the Pumpkin Stein Beer the guys brewed as well as the other home brews. Stein (German for Stone) beers use hot rocks to boil the wort, and how perfect is it for our Halloween show that the stones they used to brew this pumpkin beer are from head-stones. Cheers to everyone in the clubs that joined us today and helped brew the beers we sampled. I cannot repeat it enough that these guys brew great beers, and you should definitely come out and see for yourself on Nov 5th (10AM-4PM).
to Sean Wolfe, Chuck Yarmey (congratulations on your 3rd Friday BeerBuzz appearance!), Christina, the local home brewers, Nancy, John, Joe, and Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
