Beerstock 2014 Review in Pictures

16 Jul

Beerstock 5060-5 was a resounding success this last weekend. It may have been 90+ degrees but we all kept hydrated (we did have a keg-o-water) and drank homebrew for 12 hours before wandering around camp until we found our tents and collapsed. Anyone that loves homebrew, loves to talk about homebrew, loves to sample other’s homebew and share thier own needs to attend this event.

The CDBC’s second showing at Beerstock went very well. We had a new jockey box rig and were pouring four beers (sometimes 5):

1) It’s Raining Gose: An Artisanal American Lite Gose
2) Blonde Perdition: A Westvleteren Clone
3) CDBC Saison #1: Belgian Saison
4) CDBC Saison #2: Forbidden Fruit Saison
5) Old Skool IPA: An Oaked Belgian Sour IPA

We shared our beer, sampled plenty of good homebrew, made some new friends and got ideas on how to strengthen our club. There may be some field trips to other Seattle area club’s meetings.

At some point during the evening we started blending our beer. A mix of both saisons was delicious. Things then got a little hazy. Hopefully we can convince a few more to join us next year. I’m thinking we should rent an RV…

Beerstock 2014!

10 Jul

Ever wanted to spend the day at a lake, camp out that night and have an endless supply of homebrew?
Beerstock 5060-5 is this weekend, July 12th, and the CDBC will be there pouring some of our beers.

What is Beerstock 5060 you ask? Well, I lifted this from Washington Homebrewers Association:

“In the summer of 2009 Beerstock 5060 was the first, legal get-together of Washington homebrew clubs to taste each other’s home brew and talk brewing across home brew club lines. Yes, it’s like a homebrew beer fest!

Thanks to the passing of Bill 5060, after July 26th, 2009 it is now legal to have this type of event.”

Maybe we’ll see you there? Should be a fun day of homebrew tasting and sharing.
