This last Saturday the club brewed up 11 barrels of Johnny's beer and every member that attended prepared, brewed, cleaned or helped out in some way. We used ove 900 lbs of grain. There were twenty plus members, friends and family. Rockyard will bottle and label some of this beer in 22 bombers with the brew club logo and website info. A few barrels will be barreled aged for a year and the rest will go on tap at the brewery some time in February where we most likely will go for the tapping. Rockyard was very hospitable, they provided us with plenty of samples, a great lunch, and had door prizes for some lucky raffle winners.

For more information on the BBoPP homebrew club, you can check them out on Facebook, or visit the Website which hasn't been updated in a while, but I'm a part of a team that's going to change that. I've been a part of the group for almost a year and I've had a ton of fun with this group. Also, just because the club is called Brew Bros. doesn't mean women can't join, there are some women in the group.
