Cheshire Brew Crew

Post by DethApostle » Tue Feb 09, 2016 11:23 am

Hi all!

As some of you may already be aware for the last couple of years I have been a part of two homebrew clubs, the Chester Brew Crew and Brewdoo Homebrew Club. Both clubs were based in the Chester/Frodsham area so it made a lot of sense (for my sanity) to merge the two clubs together and so this year... the Cheshire Brew Crew was born!

We meet every last Thursday of the month at Cellar Bar, City Road, Chester at (roughly) 7:30pm
If you've never been to City Bar you are missing out! It's a short stagger from the station and has rotating selection on their 4 cask pulls, the many keg lines and also an even more impressive fridge selection! We have generously been given the use of their downstairs function room/bar to hold our meetings!

Everybody is welcome whether you are a Kit, BiaB, Extract or All Grain brewer - we're not fussy! Or perhaps you are just interested in taking your first steps into home-brewing and are looking for advice on where to start!
Most meetups involve a general bottle swap where we get to try samples of everybody else's latest creations but we also run two annual club competitions and this year have many more special events in the pipeline!

If you are interested in finding out more you can get in contact with us on Twitter: @CheshireBrewCru, Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/hbc.chester/, our website: http://www.cheshirebrewcrew.co.uk and we have a post on most of the better homebrew forums! You can PM me here too of course!
Plus i'm sure you won't miss our new flyer!

I hope to maybe see a few of you down at one of meetings in the future...
Cheers!

Just 4 days to go until the March meet and the official judging of the Recipe Roulette club competition.
Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Malt Miller, iMake (the Grainfather lot), Brew UK (tbc) and our host venue Cellar Bar the prize pot currently stands at c. £100! Suddenly this competition is worth taking seriously!

Good luck to all the entrants!

No idea, I've been trying to spread the word online since the end of last year! lol
You're certainly welcome to join us though! Next meeting is Thursday 28/07/2016, Cellar Bar around 7:30 - 8pm start. It's a general bottle swap so just bring whatever you have (and don't worry about it if you haven't anything ready!)

Cheers!

Oops... so I don't appear to have posted here about our club since January! *pats on back* well done me... :oops:

So what has happened since January then... Beer. A lot of beer...

In March, we hosted our 2nd Recipe Roulette Competition with 16 entries from members of both the Cheshire Brew Crew and the Liverpool Homebrew club. The champion beer, as judged by our independent panel, was Cheshire Chris's "Grains of Paradise Wit" and part of his prize pot was to have this beer brewed commercially by our friends at Top Rope Brewing and for it to go on tap at Cellar Bar later in the year! Brilliant!

Fast forward 5 months and... that beer has been brewed and it ready and waiting to go on sale just in time for this months meeting!

Also, by way of a warning, this months meet is one week earlier than normal and we'll be meeting at Cellar Bar, Chester on Thursday 24th August at 7:30pm.
Everybody is welcome so if you'd like to join us please just pop me a message or turn up on the night!

Cheers
