Just a shot in the dark to see if there are any other home brewers in the Scranton/Wilkes Barre area who would be willing to meet up and/or exchange some brews and discuss brewing. Feel free to post or PM me. Hope to hear from you.

Hi. Your post caught my eye. I'll be in the area August 1st through 5th. Flying in so I won't be able to carry any brews with me but will gladly try yours.

Going to a family reunion on the 3rd but pretty much free the rest of the time. I'll be traveling with my 21 y/o son. Maybe I can get your number and give you a ring when I'm in town. It's still a ways off but time tends to fly. Would be nice to get away from family for a bit and hang out, talk brew talk. I brew at least once a week and big into experimenting, for better or for worse. Mostly just beer, I love beer. And my son takes after me.

Wyoming valley homebrewers meetings are held the first Monday of the month at 7pm, unless that Monday falls on a holiday then they meet the following Monday at Sabatini's in Exeter.

I have yet to attend, but maybe July will be my first. I will be out of town tomorrow.

BobbiLynn,

we have a meeting the night of August 5th. Not sure when you're leaving town, but we would love to have you there. Let me know.

What time? We were planning on taking the late night flight out on the 5th, but still early enough to change plans. Might even be cheaper to fly back out on a Wednesday. I'll have to check the flights and see if the minor change is possible. Any guess how many miles the meeting is from the scranton/wilke-barre airport? I haven't even ordered the tickets yet, watching prices and they seem to be going down. As soon as they start going up again, or hopefully before, I'll snag them.

Just spotted this thread. I'll be moving to Hawley in a few weeks and know nothing about the area. How far is that from Wyoming Valley club meetings?

Sorry, been awhile since I've been on here. 7:00 PM is the meeting. I'd say its about 20 minutes from the airport. Maybe 25.
PM me if interested, as the PM's go to my phone. That way I'll get the message quicker.
I just mapquested it. Through town...6.9 miles, 20 minutes.
