Nice turnout! It was cool to talk to some new people in the hobby. Sorry for only bringing our old, long dead, black ipa and a green over-oaked RIS. I didnt want to bring any of our good stuff in case you all were a bunch of hipster d-bags. lmao j/k We are also a bit short on beer at the moment, but soon to have 28g of Brown Ale. We will def bring some of that next month, and maybe a vanilla bean RIS.

Steel Panther guy rules!!

I might be interested in checking out your club. Are the meetings still as posted above?

How did I not know there was a home brew club at Bigby's? I live in Addison. I've been going to Bigby's since before Ed owned it, and I have been bringing Mike, Ed, and Nick home brew for two years now. I will try to make your next meeting. How many brewers are usually there?

Our last meeting had 18 brewers show up. Apparently Bigby's will be closed the day our next meeting is scheduled. I will post when and where we decide to hold the next meeting.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday January 8th at 7:00pm. Our meetings normally take place at Bigby's Pour House in Addison, but Bigby's is closed on the 8th so we set up a tour and tasting at Church Street Brewing Company in Itasca. Normally we share our homebrew at meetings but Church Street does not allow us to do this, so after we take the tour there I am open to people coming back to my place to do some home brew sharing.

Here is the address to Church Street Brewing
1480 Industrial Drive
Unit C
Itasca IL 60143

I don't feel like posting my address on here so if you show up at Church Street I will give you directions then.
