Remember, remember! The 5th of November! Learn to Homebrew Day
Learn to Homebrew Day (LTHD) was established by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) in 1999 to encourage homebrewers to introduce their non-brewer friends and family to the most rewarding hobby, obsession and lifestyle since the beginning of time!
We will have brewing demonstrations, beer tastings (for those 21 and over) and guest speakers, best of all - IT'S FREE!
Tentative list of speakers:
Will Landry, Head Brewer at Chaos Mountain Brewing
Jeremy Kirby, Brewmaster at Sunken City Brewing Company
Frank Moeller, Founder and Brewer at Flying Mouse Brewery
Mike Pensinger, Brewmaster at Parkway Brewing Company
Bryan Summerson, Co-Owner and Head Brewer at Big Lick Brewing Company
And maybe more!
Uncle Toot's Bar-B-Que will be here selling their delicious BBQ sandwiches.
We have also put together an IPA recipe kit based on the Star City Brewers Guild's June IPA competition winner's entry. The recipe was developed and brewed by Brad and Alex Wyatt and they are calling it "Dinner in Roanoke". These kits will be available in All Grain and Extract versions, so anyone can brew them!
Proceeds from the sales of these kits from October 1st through November 5th will be donated to Carilion Clinic Children's Hospital and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to help provide equipment and services for our local NICU and Pediatric Units.
"The hallmark of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is that 100% of funds raised remain locally to enable our hospital to provide miracles of health and healing for babies and children of our local communities. Every dollar makes a difference!"
