The WSB Cask Fest is Saturday April 25th from 2-6pm at the McCloud's Grill House in East Bremerton. We will have the side room all to ourselves. Hope to have the brewers set up their kegs/casks starting at Noon-so everything will be in place by 2pm for the tasting. Please bring towels and small buckets to place under your kegs/casks-will make for easier clean-up. Info of different ways for dispensing your cask conditioned ales are in the Newsletters. There will be no outside food or commercial brew allowed-please have lunch or dinner at McCloud's or order food during the event. A big Thank You to McCloud's owner, Andy Graham, for allowing us to use the room. We will be taking donations for the use of the room. Brew up any style you like. Please bring your own taster glass.
The following Saturday, May 2nd, is Big Brew! It will be hosted by our president, Jack, at his place near Brownsville. The brewers can set up their brewing equipment on the driveway starting at 9am. A few pop-up tents will be available. There is plenty of parking across the street at the church. The world-wide Toast to Homebrewing is at 10am. There are a few recipes on the AHA website or use your own. A few brewers will be making Mojito beers and that recipe will be in a Newsletter. Please bring your homebrews, commercial brews and snacks to share and a taster glass. Maybe a few chairs and pop-up tents. Be prepared for any weather. Big Brew usually lasts until 6 to 9pm.
Seattle Beer Week is May 7th through the 17th. Silver City Brewery was chosen to make the official SBW beer and it is a lager. Brewmaster Don Spencer is our club's first president.
