Jack Russell is planning to host a brew day and bbq for Lockdown Brewing and Pro-Am competition winner, and hop head asst organizer Derek Smith. Watch Derek brew and slave over a 7 barrel batch of his awesome rye pale ale that will be served at Sacramento Beer Week under the name of Rail Rider RyePA. It will be pretty entertaining watching Derek empty 1,200 pounds of spent grain from the mashtun by himself! Brewing will begin around 11 am and continue until 4-5. We have arranged a BBQ lunch (Tri-Tip or Chicken) and Pint of Beer Special for $10. Additonal pints are always available as well.

We will be cutting off the RSVPs on January 26, 2011, since the folks at Lockdown/Jack Russell would like to get a head count and idea for tables and bbq. This will be a family friendly outing and hope to see you there.

    What a blast! I met some awesome brewers/brew lovers and look forward to more Hop Head events. I got a sneek sip of Derek's rye beer (not from Sunday's wort) and it was pretty good. Good Job Derek!!! Also, the brewery's Vanilla Stout and BBQ was yummy.

    Good times and thanks to the folks at JRB and Lockdown for hosting a killer day and event. Great to see Erik working with Derek, GCBA, and the hopheads and teaching us a little more on the all grain brew.

    Just to clarify, there will be no wort shares. All wort will be maintained by Lockdown.
