Beer Travel / Las Vegas
« on: July 09, 2013, 06:01:01 PM »
I going to Las Vegas for a week. Haven't been there in years. Are there any must visit beer spots? I am more interested in out of the way places then the big casino stuff, unless it is exceptional.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Serving homebrew at beer events
« on: October 14, 2011, 05:58:11 PM »
Our club Hellgate Homebrewers in Grants Pass Oregon just precipitated in a local City Event, called Tap Walk.A limited number of tickets were sold and folks walked to several bars and restaurants were they would get a small pour of different beers. Our club was invited to be a stop on the Tap Walk. Last year we did a brew demo and poured a beer brewed from a member's recipe that was done by Wild River Brewing. So this year with all the law changes we decided that we should pour our Homebrew and no demo. There was some discussion among the officers of the club about legality of doing this. So a letter was sent to OLCC explaining what we wanted to do and if it was legal. There response was "you can serve homebrewed beer but you can not receive any money or compensation (tickets that were sold for tastings) of any kind for the beer". So we gave away our beer.
What I'm saying is you never know until you ask the right people. So all you Oregon clubs, it is OK to serve homebrew at events you just cant sell it. I still think it would be a good idea to get it in writing though.
I hope this helps some others clubs.

I'm in the process of having a brew stand built. What is a good measurement for the burner to bottom of  the pots or kettle. It's going to be a two tier stand and the guy thats go to weld it up needs to know.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Location ideas for homebrew club meetings
« on: July 18, 2010, 05:19:44 PM »
My club is in the same boat as Denny's club. We are in Grants Pass Oregon and are meeting at Wild River Brewery. They let us bring homebrew for tasting at the meetings. With all the stuff going on right now in Oregon about home brew as President I'm going to disallow all homebrew tasting at meetings. I don't want to get Wild River in trouble with OLCC.. We may need to come up with a temporary fix for now. Maybe weekend tastings at members homes.
