Default National Homebrew Day! Your Plans?

Well, it figures.
National Home Brew Day just happens to be on my sons First Communion day.
Or vice versa.
No chance of getting over to the LHBS to partake in any of their activities.
The name of the store is Adventures in Home Brewing and I believe they are having a BBQ, and brewers there, brewing some recipes and serving samples of others throughout the day.
Figures.
My first batch isn't even in bottles yet either, so I can't even enjoy one when we get home from the hall, as the LHBS will be closing by then.
The hall we have does not allow alcohol being served either.
Figures.

Very much looking forward to my sons big day, but was hoping to make my way there after hall, to partake in some brewing and sampling.
Hope your day allows a bit more time to enjoy the hobby.

Bummer--I really need to brew...the last batch I brewed has been bottle conditioning over two weeks now: I really need to start filling up that pipeline!

Hey Hopjedi,

Whereabouts in Dearborn Heights? I grew up in Dearborn--near the corner of Telegraph and Carlisle. (A long time ago.)

We are holding a club brew-in, brewing 125 gallons of beer, pblic and press invited. Doing a 12 noon toast to home brewers and then having a BBQ dinner. Then I am off to get another tattoo.

I am glad to hear the tatoo isn't a drunken after thought: "I thought a bottle cap tattooed on my forehead was a good idea at the time..."

...or that beer label your friend has so that when he's pulled over and asked if he's been drinking he can say, "Nope (pointing to his forehead), I'm on the patch"!
