Sadly, I may have to stop blogging about our Backyard Brewing Society Sessions. Not because they aren't a lot of fun, but because it really is the same old thing.
We get together, we brew beer, laugh...a lot, and eat an excessive amount of great food. This past weekend was no different.
Blessed with temperatures in the 40's, we ditched the jackets and soaked up the sun. We also discovered the enjoyment of staggered brews. A total of five of us brewed, but we started off at vastly different times. (I worked up a pale ale and as a side note, put the primary in glass, something I never do. I'm looking forward to watching the "process".)
This minor schedule adjustment allowed the rest of us to have downtime and help out the others whereas historically, we would be too busy minding our own operation. It was a welcome change.
So, how do you find us? Easy, follow the bacon road:
We are talking about coming up with an emblem for our little society. It was Eric who pointed out the requirement of including a fatty in the artwork.
It seems fattys are as common at brew day anymore, as is the presence of beer. This day was no different. Not only did we stagger the brew start times, I also staggered the fattys. Number one was sweet onion and pepperjack cheese smoked in applewood:
Number two was feta and spinach. Put these together with Keith's chicken dip, Brian's wings and David's most excellent ribs and you have a bunch of beached brewers.
So, once again we have another sucessful brew day. Yes, 70 degree weather will be nice, but as long as we continue to have great food, great beer
and great friends, regardless of the weather, we will continue to have brew days.
Oh, and more than likely, I will continue to post about them too.
