Familyhood Reunion Anniversary Party!

What do you think when you think of Home?

We think of you.

 

Another year has flown by! As we reminisce on the laughs, the support and all the beers. We would not be where we are today without you. With our glasses held high and shout “Salute” to you all who have made our brewing dreams possible, we have a jam packed weekend planned just for you!

Think of this as a mini brewery conference weekend if you will…

Friday: PAR-TAY time! All day we will be releasing thrown back favorites of the brews that bring us joy. Jacob will be releasing some new brews that he saved for this special occasion.

Saturday: Getting down to the nitty gritty and do some good ole’ fashion learning, with copious amounts of beer of course.

10:30a – Intro To Homebrewing Workshop: Saving the universe through homebrewing!

12:30p-3p – Wort Day IPA: Collect your wort and make magic happen at your own home. We will meet Thursday, July 2nd for a Wort Day Bottleshare.

12:30p – Malt Workshop: Exploring various malts through malt teas and discussing how and which malts will make your home brews stand out above the rest.

2p – Hop Sensory Workshop: Partnering with Yakima Chief Hops, we will have ourselves a hop blending party. Experience first hand how brewers create your favorite IPAs. Pick your favorite hops and blend with other hop profiles to create the sensory experience that you’ve always wanted. The winning hop blend will featured in the next IPA!

Sunday: Arts and Crafts and Beermosas: We’ve had all the fun we could possibly have in one weekend. Let take some time and relax with a drink and good company and make something fun.

Along side with limited edition merchandise and raffle prizes, what more can we possibly do?! We hope you will join us on our very special Familyhood Reunion.

Hop Growing 101 & Rhizomes

Hop Growing Class – Includes Rhizomes!

Local homebrewer and hobby hop-grower, Sean Gardinier, will walk us through the entire hop growing process — from rhizome selection to harvest, to root maintenance.

You will walk away with your choice of several rhizomes from his own farm, so that you can plant hops this year as well.
The evening will include an 8oz pour of your choice from Home Brewing Co, samples of hops to taste/smell.

Includes: class, rhizomes to take home (2-3 per person depending on availability), and samples of hops.

Dry-Hop Experiment

Jeff from Mash Heads, a homebrew club in San Diego proposed an experiment in which we dry hopped bottles of beer with different varieties.

We had a keg of Mission Brewing light lager to work with, an ideal base for our experiment. We filled 15 22 oz bottles using a ratio of 1/2 oz per gallon, many higher gravity IPAs use 1 oz per gallon.

Jamie and Tricia from Mash Heads were kind enough to host the tasting at their house. There were about 12 Mash Heads present.

For info about the hops we used, and some tasting notes check out Jamies blog at The Cask & Barrel.
