Girls Pint Out “House & Homebrew”

NC Girls Pint OutThe NC chapter of the popular social group, Girls Pint Out, is shifting their eyes away from the bars for their May event and taking the beer back inside the home.

The girls will be hosting a small homebrew festival/tasting event where you’ll have the opportunity to see what beers other girls (and boys) are making at home in the area, and ask questions about getting started brewing your own beer.  It’s a great opportunity to open your eyes to the world of homebrewing on a smaller, more intamate scale instead of attending one of the larger, more crowded festivals such as Brew Durham.

The event is scheduled to run from 1-4pm on Saturday, May 18th.  The cost is $20, but 100% of the ticket price is going directly to Hope for the Warriors.  Only 40 tickets will be sold, and they will definitely go fast!

Katy (my better half) and I will be there serving up a session IPA.  It will likely be the control version of a new experiment we’ll be working on – splitting a batch of IPA and doing a clean fermentation in one keg and a 100% brett fermentation in the other.  Maybe the Brett beer will make it out to some other events in a few months…

Ben and Dawnya from Haw River Farmhouse Ales will also be bringing some of their creations, as will a handful of other talented local homebrewers, so it is sure to be an excellent affair!
