How exactly does this support home brewing? (since they totally remove the "home" from the "brewing".)
Like many brewers, Trevor at Thunderhead began as a home brewer himself and he's been very supportive of our club. It's also nice to be able to see how it's done commercially for those aspiring commercial brewers. He's supporting the club and generating interest in brewing today and we'll support him next September by helping pick hops. Maybe mutual aid isn't the way things get done elsewhere, but it's certainly typical for this part of the country.

We're doing this on June 6th here and I can't freakin' wait!!! Ours is $20 a share. Not too bad for 5 gal of microbrew IMHO.

The local here near smAlbany gave the ingredients for the SS Minnow for extract or AG free if you brewed in front of the shop on big brew day. How can you beat 5 gallons of free beer? I think there were close to 30 batches being brewed between noon and 5 that day. I did an AG of SS minnow two weekends ago, and an extract at the LHBS on the 2nd. Racked the AG from two weekends ago to a keg with half a bag of priming sugar and it tastes pretty damn good. Can't wait until it's ready. It's going to be very difficult to leave that keg alone for 3 weeks.

Wish I had a LHBS that was cool and did big brew days like this.

Get your local beerclub to band together and build a BugBrew system. Wew have a rig that can do about almost 100 galons at a time, and fire it up at club events, and everyone goes home with Wert.
