Coldone,

Welcome to the party! I'm currently brewing a batch right now. Heating the sparge water. I'm glad you found this thread.

So far each home brewer I have met in the area can make some great beer! I get the feeling there are quite a few of us but we just need to get a little organized to make it easier to share and meet up.

If there is a day and time you want to meet just pick it and post here. We can go from there about trying to get together. Thursday's seem bad for two of us. I can do Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

Tim

Ditto,
Coldone welcome to the forum.
I would be down for setting up a meeting. WE can meet up at a local eatery and have an exchange or brews or something.
I would be down. any one have any ideas?

Thanks guys. Sorry it's been a few days.... been on vacation and now trying to catchup. Just got a new kegerator Fridge... so setting that up as well. Most weekdays evenings and some weekends I could meet. Does anybody know a eatery where we can bring our own? I don't bottle mine ....but could bring a growler if they allow that sort of thing.

Cheers

I've never asked anyone if we can bring our own to drink. In the past I have always just swapped beers and sent texts later about my experience.

Weekdays are best for me. Thursdays are not so good for others in the area.

I try to let everyone know when I'm brewing to give them the chance to come over. I've made a few brew days at Kevin's as well.

I'd love to meet up. If we can get everyone together for a dinner that would be cool. Especially if we can drink what we bring. That would allow an open discussion of each.

Tim

How y'all doing? I stumbled on this thread and just wanted to shout out. I'm about 2 hours north from you on I-79. I don't think there's many brewers up this way.. But I'm still stoked to learn that there's a scene down in C-Town! If you get a meet and greet together I could try to make it... Although I'd have to find a nearby hotel. Wouldn't wanna drive home after plenty of meeting and greeting!

Is the 'common ground' still open? I think it was on Summer street.. I saw some killer metal and punk shows there back in the day.

Two hours north as in Fairmont? There's a Fairmont Area Society of Homebrewers (FASHists) and Morgantown Area Society of Homebrewers (MASH), both with a big presence on facebook.

Hi TJ! Yeah.. I'm around Bridgeport. I'm a noob and just trying to make some contacts. Really appreciate the links. Are you active in the clubs?

I checked the Fairmont page. Looks like there are some events coming up. I might have to register and show up at one of em.

Hey 707, I'm not active in the clubs, just follow the facebook groups. I know a few people in the clubs, and there is some cross-pollination of course.

My Christmas beer is about ready. How many others here made a seasonal beer this year? It would be cool to set up a meeting or dinner where we could sample everyone's brew. How many would be interested in that? If you want to meet in charleston post here and I'll pick a day in December. That's still enough time to brew up a beer if you haven't already.

Tim

That sounds fantastic! I have recently gotten back into homebrewing after taking a couple years off. In fact, what lead me to this forum was this particular thread.

Right now ive got a paw paw wheat beer fermenting in the secondary over top of the paw paws so it will definitely be ready in december and im also going to brew a chocolate peanut butter porter soon, which i guess is slightly more seasonal.
