July 2019 Club Shop Brew Session Sour with Jeremy

Join fellow Falcon Jeremy Stacy on Sunday, July 21 to brew some of his award-winning sour beer for the July Club Shop Brew Session. Jeremy will lead the crew in brewing a Catarina, a new provisional style in the BJCP style guidelines that is essentially a fruited imperial Berlinerweisse, if that was such a thing. It has its roots in Brazil, where a combination of German roots and an abundance of tropical fruit have combined to make an awesome tart style. This is a beer meant to be enjoyed fresh, with the fruit being added at the same stage a dry hop would be otherwise.

Drew's 45 IPA

Drew turned 45 and what better way to celebrate turning 45 than making a birthday brew. Together we created an IPA with a nominal starting gravity of 1.074 and 74 IBUs (to reflect Drew's 1974 birthday), the beer used 4 malts, 5 hops with 45% and 45% of the malts being two base malts. The hops include a special addition - hop terpenes of Citra and Columbus for the keg

FALCONRY & THE ORDER OF ST JOHN, the true tale of the MALTESE FALCON

In 1539, Charles V, co-King of Aragon, of which Sicily was a fiefdom and Malta a part, granted use of the island of Malta to the Knights.of the Order of St John along with the responsibility of garrisoning Tripoli. In exchange for this kindness, the knights offered to celebrate a daily mass for Charles. Or, in lieu of a mass, the emperor, an avid falconer, could elect to receive a prized falcon annually in tribute. He chose the falcon.

January Shop Brew Dortmunder Adambier with John Aitchison Sat. Jan. 19

Join John Aitchison, Chris Moon, and Roger Taylor in brewing this rare beer on Saturday, Jan 19 at the Home Beer and Wine Shop. Same recipe they used in Nov. 2016 and basically same recipe Figueroa Mountain used in brewing Deacon's Nightcap. See the attachment for details.

Be prepared to work--they'll be decocting over 100 pounds of grain in two kettles over two burners and they'll be using lots of burners to caramelize and concentrate wort. But you'll have fun and learn a lot and walk out with a unique beer. You will know decoctions when you leave.
