  • Aug 2022 - The Tripel Crown

    Needs a location

    Tripel night - go big, go Belgian!

    Pale, Spicy, Dry and Strong - yep, it's the chance to brew (and more importantly try) lots of Belgian Trappist style Tripel beers. Complex and hard to perfect, a real challenge. For a bit of an introduction, check out the (second, I think) episode of Beermasters....., or brew anything! Don't worry if you haven't brewed anything - tasters are always welcome.

    Note: most of our members don't use meetup, there'll be likely to be at least 10 people at the horse, regardless of signups here.

    If you're not in our slack group then send us a message with your email address and we'll send an invite out.

  • November 2022 - The Land Before Hops

    Needs a location

    Gruit/No hop night

    A beer without hops? It turns out once upon a time beer didn't have hops. Gruit originates (according to someone on the internet who put it on Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruit) around the 10th century. A truly historic beer.

    As mugwort (a traditional ingredient) is a foraged ingredient, we'll open it up to a no hop beer. But don't worry, no hops doesn't mean no flavour. All manner of herbs and spices can be used to make a truly unique beer.

    ......, or brew anything! Don't worry if you haven't brewed anything - tasters are always welcome.

    Note: most of our members aren't on meetup and there's likely to be over 10 people at the horse, regardless of signups here. If you're not in our slack group then send us a message with your email address and we'll send an invite out.
