|Goes great with a cold beer. And since Inca Trail is BYOB, you can bring your favorite homebrew.|
|Just a few of the great beers we got to sample.|
BJCP 16A Witbier: Wes Glinsmann
BJCP 16E. Belgian Specialty: Nick Slepko
BJCP 18C Belgian Tripel: Ross Harper
BJCP 18E Belgian Dark Strong: Tony Tielli
In addition to the tasting, we also conducted a little business. Tony gave a brief presentation on the history and characteristics of Belgian beer styles. Wes reported that we're going to try to have an educational component at each of our future meetings. Next month, we'll be talking about proper sanitation techniques. So if that topic (or something else you're knowledgeable about) piques your interest as something you'd like to talk about, let Gail or Wes know and we'll make sure to plug you in. Also, Bricktown Brewery has given Gail an obscene amount of Perle hops. So if that's something you could use in a future brew, stop by The Brew Shop with a zip-loc bag and Gail will hook you up.
Don't forget--the July meeting (tentatively scheduled for July 21st) is our "pro-am" competition, at which we'll be sampling all the beers we brewed with our friends for the AHA's Big Brew Day last month. So be sure to bring your friends with you and introduce them to our club and the wide, wide world of homebrewing. We've got a good lead on a location for our July meeting, and we'll let you know for sure once we have that confirmed.
Hope everyone is able to stay cool this weekend. Happy brewing!
