John Palmer speaking Monday / Table Beer Sign Up / AHA Rally this Sunday

At about 8 this Monday, John Palmer, author of Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers and How to Brew, will arrive to talk about Water and more!

Sign up is open for the table beer competition, happening at our Monday, May 5 meeting.  To participate, please add your name to this google spreadsheet by 10am Friday.   Beers should be no stronger than 3.5% ABV.  I wasn’t at the last meeting but think that’s the only rule of the contest.  We’ll start the contest pretty close to 7.

Also, this Sunday, May 4, the American Homebrewers Association is having a rally at Finback Brewery in Ridgewood (or thereabouts), just down Metropolitan Ave from north Brooklyn. John Palmer is also speaking there.  RSVP is requested, and AHA membership is required, but you can join for a discount at the rally.  Membership is normally $38 and includes a subscription to Zymurgy magazine and discounts (most locally, these include a free token with each visit to Brooklyn Brewery).  RSVP at
