Hello Homebrewers! Exciting happenings are happening this spring at the RI Brewing Society. This weekend we will have a booth at the Newport Craft Beer Fest so if you are attending make sure to stop by and say hi. We had a tremendously well attended April meeting hosted by Morgan at Buttonwoods Brewery a few weeks ago. The brewery really has the space we are looking for to accommodate our growing membership.
May 6th is National Homebrew Day! What better way to celebrate than hosting a Big Brew Party? We will have our event at Green Acres Farm (51 Farm Street, North Smithfield, RI) and will be part of a worldwide celebration with homebrew clubs from around the globe coordinated through the American Homebrewers Association. The Big Brew is FREE and open to the public. We’ll have brewing demonstrations, food, games, and of course homebrew samples for the 21+ crowd. Hope you’ll come check it out, the first Saturday in May 10-6!
In addition to the Big Brew we distributed kegs from a bulk buy members coordinated, planned a beer and food pairing dinner, discussed a club discount for Brew Your Own magazine, took home fresh hop rhizomes, ate delicious snacks, and of course, sampled homebrew! Our spring homebrew competition is May 11 after the regular meeting items, featuring Saisons and Witbiers. If any of that sounds like a good time to you, feel free to join our mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and hopefully we’ll see you at an event sometime soon.
