Make sure to get your tix!

Want to try your hand at homebrewing? It’s been a dream of ours for a while, so we’re excited to take the next steps by checking out the Homebrewing Fundraiser at the Greenwich Library. Your beer education and experience starts at 6:30 on May 30 and goes until 8:30. Tickets to this event are just $50 per person and that includes learning about homebrewing, samples, beer “recipes,” pizza, and even refreshments. Given the nature of this fundraiser, you’ll have to be 21+ to attend…sorry four year olds who want to learn about hops. Buy your tickets by clicking here or by calling up Sarah Falvo at (203) 622-7957.

Here are some more details about the event:

Home Brew Contest for APAs and IPAs at Coalhouse Pizza and Maltose Express

29 Apr


It’s that time of year again!  Coalhouse Pizza and Maltose Express have put together another home brew competition, but this time around there are two specific brews at the center of the contest.  Home brewers will either submit an American Pale Ale or an American IPA for judging.  The deadline is May 25 and your brews can be dropped off either at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford or at Maltose Express in Monroe.  Then, on June 4, entries will be evaluated by Beer Judge Certification Program judges and Coalhouse will pour out “Best of Show,” “First Place,” “Second Place,” and “Third Place.”

This is just one of the great things that Gerard Robertson and everybody at Coalhouse Pizza have planned to highlight, enhance, and support the beer culture in Fairfield County.  Because of optimal brewing times, you’ll need to get right on this.  Here is the Bottle ID form and here is the entry form from Coalhouse.

Good luck everybody…and keep on the look out for some other great news from Coalhouse!
