Monthly meeting Tuesday is upon us! This Tuesday we will be at Half Pints, usual start at 7:30! This month, Sean will be doing a talk on brewing! Covering almost everything from A-Z as a higher level overview. I thought this was a fantastic topic as it may help out our new members, and anyone who want to improve their process to make better beer!
Don’t forget to brew your porter for December for you chance to choose this year’s Big Brew!

Our monthly meeting will be held at Fort Garry Brewing this month!
This years Big Brew will be held Sunday March 13th. Your IPA competition winner, Myles, has selected a fine German Altbier to brew!
A well balanced, well attenuated, bitter yet malty, clean, and smooth, amber to copper colored German beer. The bitterness is balanced by the malt richness, but the malt intensity and character can range from moderate to high (the bitterness increases with the malt richness).
As always, this will be held at Half Pints brewery, usually running about 9am – 4pm. Your brew master Dave Rudge has lined up some presentation with members of the Manitoba Brewer’s Association, these should be quite informative!
* This is a members only event
There was a mistake on the event calendar, the December meeting is being held on December 8th! Bring your best IPA for a chance to have your recipe brewed at Half Pints for the club Big Brew!
The Half Pints Pro/Am is now complete, a big thinks to all the organizers who put in countless hours to make the competition a huge success. And not to be forgotten are the hard working volunteers and judges who came from near and far, a big thanks to them as well!
