July Meet - TOMORROW! - Wednesday 25th July

Just a quick reminder that we will be meeting tomorrow, Wednesday 25th July, at The Brewery Tap, 18-24 New Station Street, Leeds, LS1 5DL.

As well as a talk from Andy Hamilton, we will have Ilkley Brewery popping in to announce the winner of their competition - an American Brown Ale - which will be going into production later in the year. The announcement will be at the start of the evening (we think!), so if you're in the running, please don't be late!

Also lurking in the shadows will be Stuart Ross of Magic Rock (not to be confused with Stewart Ross of Ilkley Brewery....), who very kindly supplied the yeast at short notice for the production brew of Matt Lovatt and Will Brigg's Possession Amber Ale, which will be on the bar tomorrow. Thanks also to Alex from Leeds Brewery for supervising the brew day.

As if that wasn't enough to drag you away from your mash tuns for the evening, Tom from Rooster's Brewery will also be in attendance with news of another collaborative experiment between the group and Rooster's Brewery. It may be in the guise of a competition, but that word makes it sound so, well, competitive, doesn't it?.....

See you tomorrow!

  1. Hi, I might come along to this, still pretty new to homebrewing and haven't progressed to all grain setup yet. I've got a chocolate stout and a dry hopped IPA made with the Design-a-brew kits that I wouldn't mind getting some feedback on.

    1. Cool, look forward to seeing you tomorrow Andy

    2. Not gonna make it now I'm afraid, got some unavoidable work stuff to sort out. Definitely try and make the next one though, hopefully with a couple of all grain efforts to bring along.

  2. I hope to get there. The only beers I have on at the moment are in kegs so I won't be able to bring any. TBF both the Abdij and Bock aren't that brilliant anyway, I didn't really expect the Abdij to be as good as a Belgian Brune but I expected at least a nod in the general direction of a brune!
