Hi again and happy Friday! Stop in and share a beverage with us.
This week in beer news:
- in response to huge public demand, the White House released its beer recipes! (and there was much rejoicing!) Homebrewers can now argue about how they should be doing things.
- In Munich, it's trouble that's brewing: with only a couple weeks to go before Oktoberfest there's enough beer but a shortage of bottles to put it in.
"Dear Munichers — bring back your crates. We need our empties,”...Anyone going to Oktoberfest?
Brewers wash and reuse their bottles up to 50 times and rely on their customers to return them, but that hasn’t happened quickly enough this time and is preventing beermakers from building up the required supplies.
It's homebrew club night so I'll be drinking what the other members bring to share. I won't be in the conversation until later after the meeting.
What are you drinking?
