Saturday, Nov. 7th: Brewing Beer, Pressing Cider

Greetings Homebrewers and beer enthusiasts,

The Grad Homebrewer’s Guild is hosting a “Brewing All-Grain” Beer and Pressing Apple Cider Brewing Event this Saturday.

When: Saturday Nov. 7th, 10AM to 8PM?? (come anytime, quick visits welcome or help all day)
Where: 13 Teagan Ave., Hanover, NH  (just north of the Hockey arena)Directions to brewing

Directions from the Green to 13 Teagan

No experience necessary! Come drink beer, cider, eat some food, and learn about brewing beer and pressing cider.
We’ll conclude (or supplement?) the brewing with a lively dance party.

This is a joint event with The Dartmouth Beekeeping Association’s Honey Bottling and Candle-making session. Come for beer, stay for honey?

Brewing will happen outside, rain or shine, so dress appropriately for standing around outside… or dance for warmth.
Please share, all are welcome!

Brewing is fun. Brewing smells good.

Pressing apples.

BrewHaHa 2015: Sat. May 16th

BrewHaHa 2015 -- Saturday May 16th

BrewHaHa 2015 — Saturday May 16th

Join Guild members at the Organic Farm for food, music, and homebrew this Saturday May 16th from 1 — 4PM. We’re proudly featuring 3 Craft Brews:

Who’s Got That Good D IPA (Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine Clone) — 7.5% ABV

Germany Boy Weiss (German Wheat Style) — 7 % ABV

Spring Fox Pale Ale (floral Cascade hops) — 6.2 % ABV

Last year 15 gallons of homebrew were consumed in 30 minutes! Food disappeared so quickly that even Guild members serving beer didn’t get fed. COME EARLY!

This year we’re better prepared with 3 batches of homebrew and extra Harpoon kegs. The Guild is not responsible for the food, but we’re told that supplies have been increased from last year.

Spring Brewing (finally!)

Brewers and Beer Enthsiasts

Join us at 13 Teagan this Saturday and Sunday for a Learn-to-Brew Weekend!

Once again, Guild members are providing beer for BrewHaHa and we need to brew as soon as possible in order for the beer to be ready.

Over the weekend we’ll brew a total of 3 beers at a rapid pace, so come prepared to help clean and learn on the fly.

Event: Feb 6th – How to Brew an ESB

Have you been wanting to get into homebrewing, but don’t know where to
start? Well then come over to Uncle Jim’s Cabin, 18 Rayton Rd in Hanover
tomorrow night (2/6) at 7pm, where I will be teaching how to brew a
simple beer without much headache and work (let’s be honest, would you
rather spend time brewing your beer or drinking it?). I will be brewing
an extra special bitter (ESB), and will go over the basic chemistry of
what is happening, how to follow a simple extract recipe (no kit beer
here!) and how to relax and enjoy a homebrew. If this appeals to you
please sign up using the following link, so I know how many to expect
(my kitchen has limited space, so I don’t know if 20 people will fit):

Come and hang out for as much or as little time as you like. Feel free
to bring a beer or two to share. If you choose to drive, please park on
the even side of the street so as not to block the plows.
