UPDATE: via Twitter Scott Rudich owner and brewmaster of Round Guys Brewing reached out to let us (and you) know he will be appearing on an upcoming “Sunday Session” on the Brewing Network to discuss this issue in more depth. Here is the full content of the tweet: @RoundGuysBrewer: @BeerLovesCo @HomebrewAssoc I will be on an upcoming episode of the Sunday session to discuss in more depth @brewingnetwork

As some of you may know or perhaps had the misfortune to experience first hand, Round Guys Brewing Company, produced an infected and explosive commemorative beer called Custer’s Last Stand for the American Homebrewers Association’s recent 35th annual National Homebrewes Conference in Philadelphia. We had a great time at the NHC this year and were very happy to bring home some quasi-free beer. What we did not realize at the time was that the cans of Round Guys Brewing Company Custer’s Last Stand were essentially ticking yeast time bombs waiting to blow up all over the place. keep reading...

MALT-n-PEPA & WHATTA MAN-GO – Brewing up TWO Wheat Beers




Recently we here at BLC brewed two wheat beers for the American Homebrewers Association’s 35th Annual National Homebrewers Conference. These takes on the wheat/hefeweizen style/s were crafted with our good friend Frank Filacchione. Our well received and LIB Magazine “Top 5 Beers from local Long Island Brewing Companies” (even though we aren’t a brewing company) Saint Remo Gruit Ale was conceived of and brewed with big FRANK. He is an award winning home brewer and is one of our favorite brewing partners. Each of us are hard at work on a new ale recipe for the upcoming North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ & Wine Festival at Martha Clara Vineyards (it will be delicious). We are all members of Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiasts (L.I.B.M.E.) a local Long Island homebrewing club and brewed Malt-n-Pepa and Whatta Man-Go to be poured at Club Night event during NHC 2013. This evening was a gathering of homebrewing clubs from around the country pouring beers ranging from an old bay gose all of the way to a three year aged cherry lambic. We will be providing a full run down of the night and our adventures featuring two grodzikies, beer served from a mine cart, talking with a brewing legend and more soon. For now back to Malt-n-Pepa and Whatta Man-Go keep reading...

The 35th Annual A.H.A. National Homebrewers Conference (2013)


Next week, the 35th annual American Homebrewers Association National Homebrewers Conference will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Though the conference is officially Thursday, June 27-Saturday, June 29, there are pre-conference activities taking place earlier in the week including a BJCP tasting exam, which we here at Beer Loves Company will be taking (fingers crossed!). So, what exactly does a homebrew conference entail? Well, to be honest, we are not 100% sure as this is our first time attending, but we are more than eager to find out! keep reading...
