The Heart of the Valley Homebrewers are excited to announce open registration for the 35th Oregon Homebrew Festival begins this Saturday, April 15th. Register your beers and judging intentions!
Saturday, February 18th, Joel will be teaching an all-grain brewing class here at CBS. Start time is 9:00 and we should be done by 2:00. Besides covering the process, we will have a discussion on malts and how equipment varies and why a brewer may want to choose one system over another. We will be brewing up a batch of McRea's Sip o' the Sea, an Irish Dry Stout with oysters, which will be served on Friday, March 17th, which happens to be St. Patrick's Day!
Cost is $15 and there are a few openings as I do limit class size to 10 people. Drop in to pre-pay and reserve your spot!
Members of the Heart of the Valley Homebrewers hard at work!
The Harry Oyster Irish Dry Stout is a Valentine's Day brew tradition for me and yesterday's batch was no disappointment!
