**sorry, this should have been in the local gatherings forum*** mods feel free to move...

I've been trying to get my fellow New Jersey brewers to engage in some real, in person, camaraderie; whether brewing, drinking or just hanging out, for at least a year now. Not a week goes by that a new HBT'r doesn't come introducing themselves with a "hi from new jersey" thread. Ok guys, HI....now come hang out and brew. Maybe it's weird to meet strangers or you're afraid of getting chopped up and used as a lampshade (yes I stole that one).

As a member of The WHALES home brewing club here in central NJ, I've offered to host this year's Teach a Friend to Brew day. Now the catch is that Nov 3rd coincides with the New England Cider Day so we've postponed it a week to Nov 10th.

The turn out should be great just counting the brew club members but I'm extending an invitation to any HBT members that are interested as well. You can come to brew or watch. If you're brewing, bring a food contribution. If you're just watching, bring food and some of your homebrew for everyone to share (or at least a 12 of commercial as a thank you gesture).

We usually pull off about 100 gallons of brew between a few 10 gallon all grain and a few 5 gallon extracts. There are a lot of all grain guys willing to teach extract brewers by splitting their 10 gallon batch.

PM me for more details. If we don't get a single HBT member (besides me) at this event, I'll officially declare the NJ contingent of HBT a bunch of lame closet brewers.



Here's a short video of a similar event last May:

Like I said in PMs, I'll try to be there and to the next WHALES meetings. NJ homebrewers seem to be reclusive. Let's get together people!

I'm bumping this one more time since I'd like to get a total headcount by the end of this week. Anyone who's never attended a big group brew is strongly urged to get out from behind your computer and see what other people are doing. I'm not saying online reading (especially HBT) isn't extremely valuable, but there's NOTHING like seeing people brew and talking techniques in person.

Bump one more time. I'd appreciate an RSVP on this ASAP if you're planning on coming. If you're in the central Jersey area and are not planning on coming, I'd love to hear why not. When is the last time you've had the chance to take 10 or so personal brewery tours in one place? Even if you think I'm a complete tool based on my HBT posts, you still stand to learn something from all the other veteran brewers in attendance. ;-)

Philadelphia is 1:20h
NYC is 1h.

I know that the_bird and those Yankee guys drive 1-3 hours to get together for a brewout!

WTF people?
