February Q&A and Strangebrewary

The next WSB Q&A Session is Thursday February 15th from 6:30-8:30pm in the sideroom of Sound Brewery in Poulsbo. Our guest speaker is Alan Moum of Sound Brewery and longtime club member. Alan will be discussing judging and evaluating beers with a BJCP form. This info will be well suited for club members who are entering their homebrews in the National Homebrew Competition this year. All homebrewers should learn how to evaluate their own brews - Alan can help you. Please come by early to have dinner or order at the bar before you attend the session.

Our fifth annual homebrew Strangebrewary Meeting is Saturday February 17th from 1-6pm west of Silverdale. Brew up something unusual - something outside the usual style guidelines. We will be voting for Strangest and Tastiest brews. Please bring a growler or 3 22oz bottles or the equivalent of your strange homebrew. Club members who do not brew may bring a commercial strange brew and other club members may bring any other homebrew to share while we wait for everyone to arrive. At 3pm we will start tasting the Strangebrewary homebrews, take notes and then vote for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the Strangest category and the Tastiest category. We will announce the winners about 5:30pm. Please bring a potluck dish to share and don't forget your taster glass and bottled water.
