September’s session took a slightly unexpected turn as we were graciously invited to attend the new Brewhouse & Kitchen pub in Chester (http://www.brewhouseandkitchen.com/venue/chester-2/) on their soft opening night! In the place of the old Lloyd’s pub The Forest House now sits a brand spanking new pub complete with a very shiny microbrewery downstairs! We were lucky enough to spend an hour or so chatting with the Head Brewer from the Southbourne site about all things brewing and having a nosy around at the big boys toys all whilst drinking some of the beer that will be brewed on it in the future! Brilliant!
Once all the fun was over and the beer was drunk it was back to Cellar Bar for this months homebrew tasting!
- Ben (S): Smoked Chipotle Porter
- Top Rope Brewing (Ben J and Neil): Rye IPA
- Guy: Green-hopped Pale Ale, Cascade Pale Ale
- Charlie: Limoncello Wheat Beer, British Summer Fruit Ale
- Andy: Coopers Cerveza Kit
… and that was September sorted! We didn’t get chance to discuss a winter competition so hopefully we’ll pick that up next month. In a change to the normal schedule though, we’ll be holding our October Meeting on November 3rd at Brewhouse & Kitchen to coincide with their first homebrewers evening. It’s a 7pm start too so don’t be late!
