Thu, Jun 12 - Glass City Mashers meeting at The Attic
DD and I attended our first Glass City Mashers meeting last night, Jun 12, 2014 at the Attic, located above Mano's along Adams Street. The discussion focused on "bitters," which are English ales or pale ales. We sampled three types.
We Skyped a group of GCMs at Grand Rapids, MI for the Homebrewers Conference. Sounds like they are having a grand time. At The Attic, we enjoyed a lot of conversations with people, including J & J and Tom from the Black Cloister. Tom said they plan to begin brewing in August and open in September.
Tom said Black Cloister will supply three types of beer for a Sep, 9, 2014 farm to table #event hosted at the Toledo Zoo.
While at The Attic, DD and I drank LaTrappe Dubbel, which was very tasty, of course. We ate some grub. Over 20 people attended the meeting. DD and I were the last ones to leave from the GCM. We left at 10:40 p.m. Interesting group. Also chatted with DD's coworker and brewer B.
