The Great American Beer Festival is the premier U.S. beer festival and competition.
Each year, GABF represents the largest collection of U.S. beer ever served, in a public tasting event plus a private competition. GABF brings together the brewers and diverse beers that make the U.S. the world’s greatest brewing nation.
GABF was founded in 1982, and has been growing and evolving along with the American craft brewing industry ever since.
Our monthly Club Shop Brew is set for next Sunday, June 9th at 8:00 a.m. Mr. Treasurer, Kent Fletcher and Madam Ex-President, Nancy Gold will take over leading the crew this month for a batch of a clone recipe of Allagash's Curiuex, the famous big, oaky, Belgian-y brew. They are well known for their excellent brews and brewing smarts so it should be a great session!
AUSTRALIAN researchers have been astonished to discover a cure-all right under their noses -- a honey sold in health food shops as a natural medicine.
Far from being an obscure health food with dubious healing qualities, new research has shown the honey kills every type of bacteria scientists have thrown at it, including the antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" plaguing hospitals and killing patients around the world.
Unfortunately Golden Road's Homebrewer night has now been cancelled.

It is now Sunday afternoon. Home again after a wonderful weekend spent at the Acton KOA enjoying beer, outstanding dinner (yay Peter!) and great snacks brought by everyone.
But best of all was being surrounded by fellow Falcons. Though we were a smaller group than I was expecting, everyone was in great spirits....
So, what this story says is that LA Nightlife force Cedd Moses is planning a 17,000 square foot brewpub/pizza joint/skeeball alley on the first floor of the old Crazy Gideon's place in the Arts District downtown. He's getting the usual flack for it from neighbors, you know the types.
I wanted a simpler system for cleaning beer lines. I have a bunch of picnic type taps that I use for party serving and a couple of kegerators that I have for everyday use.
I used to fill up a corny with a couple of gallons of BLC (or PBW in a pinch) and push the solution through the lines, through the tap and back into the keg. I would then run water through to rinse. If I got really jazzed up, I would use an acid wash and/or a caustic cleaner. 5 star has a list of their chemicals for this purpose right here: http://www.fivestarchemicals.com/breweries/craft-brewers/line-cleaning/
