It is now Sunday afternoon. Home again after a wonderful weekend spent at the SCHF, enjoying beer at not only the Fest, but also John K's event and of course, the mighty Dead Palate's Soiree.
But best of all was being surrounded by fellow Falcons. Whether serving beer at all our taps (38 at one point), or going from club to club to try their wares, or dancing to the Mighty Maltose Falcons Brews band,  our members rock.

Brew With a Falcon 2016 - UPDATED WITH HOSTS!

Our annual Brew With a Falcon day is set for Saturday, June 25th! Here's the skinny: a few members of the club, will be opening up their homes to other folks to brew together. Most of these sites will be unlike a shop brew - there will be no wort for members to take home. Instead, brewers will signup and on Saturday, June 25th you'll go to your chosen location and hang out, learn and help out.

March Club Brew Session - Dark Czech Lager with John A

Falcons, prepare yourselves for a very special Club Brew Session! This month, Co-Vice President and past President and the Falcons' unofficial lager Emperor John Aitchison will lead the crew in brewing a rare and delicious authentic Czech dark lager at his shop, Tavern Services, on Saturday, March 19. John has a smaller system than the club's system at the Home Beer Wine and Cheese Making Shop, so there are 5 slots open.

Club Shop Brew of 2/21/2016

So we set our mind on a hoppy American Amber. Initially at least. It turns out that it was too big to be called that, Imperial Red would be more accurate. However, the BJCP nor the Maltose Falcons style guidelines have such a style, it would fall in the American Strong Ale according to BJCP and Double IPA under Maltose Falcons definitions.

On with the story!
