Brewing! It’s for the Children!

CSI has the opportunity to participate in two charity events. Please see the events calendar for more information.

Knights of Columbus event will be held on 3/22 from 5:30 to 9:30 PM
Location is the Columbia Interfaith Center in the Village of Wildlake
About 160 attendees are expected
MDHB to supply ingredients for 10 gal batches. Brewer keeps 5 and donates 5 to the event.

The event benefits the Tanzanian Children’s Project
Brewers and MDHB get to participate in the event pouring beer, talking to guests, and promoting home brewing and beer appreciation

KOC has already cleared the event with ATBF. Understanding is that beer is donated and there are no sales.

Hampstead Hill Academy Silent Auction on March 29th.
We’re looking for brewers willing to auction off a brewing lesson!

Maryland Homebrew will provide the extract kit, all you need to do is spend an afternoon teaching someone to brew and another afternoon teaching them how to bottle!

The actual silent auction will take place March 29th. Brewing lesson scheduling is up to you and the auction winner.

All proceeds benefit the Hampstead Hill Academy.

Historical Brewing Event

The brewing is historical, the event is in the future.

Ron Pattinson, beer historian and author of the “Shut up about Barclay Perkins” blog is giving a talk at MDHB! He’ll be on a book tour promoting his new book “The Home Brewer’s Guide to Vintage Beer. We’ve got a handful of the recipes from the new book if anyone wants to brew for the event. If we’ve got enough support we could probably even setup a CSI booth and serve some historic beers. Please let me know if you’re interested in brewing for the event so we can coordinate brews with other invited clubs. It should be a great event!

What: Ron Pattinson talking about his new book and sharing some beer
Where: Maryland Homebrew
When: Sunday, 16 March 2014
Time: TBD (Check the club Google calendar/Facebook event for updates)
