Default The Official Metro Det. Natl Homebrew Day brewing @ Cap N Cork May 7th 2011 Thread.

Although we have a couple threads discussing this in the Michigan Masher's section I know not everyone from Metro Detroit goes there, so I started thread here as well.

The usual gang of the Michigan Mashers will be there .

Saturday, May 7, 2011
10:00am - 4:00pm
Cap and Cork Homebrew Shop (in parking lot behind store)
16812 21 Mile Road
Macomb, MI

The event sponsored by Cap and Cork, and the Clinton River Association of Fermenting Trendsetters (CRAFT) homebrew club has grown larger every year, with over a hundred brewers, and several hundred gallons of beer to taste (and even more brewed onsite), great food, and folks eagerly sharing their love of the hobby with visitors.

I will be there from about 10 am until the event ends, as you can see by the picture we will have a table set up usually in the middle, with a sign labled "Homebrewtalk.com/ Michigan Masher." There will be at least 4 of us brewing, and more hanging out. And Drinking!!!

If you're planning to brew let us know. If you happen to have a tent canopy thing like that we could use one.

Or folding tables.

If you have beer you want some brewers to taste, or just want to share, bring that as well, I usually bring a few things and this year I'll have a couple of bottles of Brochet (burnt Mead) and Habenero Mead.

Here's some pics from past events.

I'm excited. My grain's milled, my beer is chilled, and my starter's started. All I have to do is load my car in the morning and we're off to the races.

Looking forward to having folks try some of the Habanero and Burnt Honey mead.
