Special Occasion Brews?
« on: November 29, 2010, 12:35:44 pm »
Hi All,
I am writing a short article about homebrewing for a new magazine called Colorado Brew and Pub. I am interesting in hearing stories of beers brewed for a special occasion.  Have you brewed a celebratory beer for your friend's wedding? How about a beer brewed specially to commemorate the birth of a child? 

If so, why did you choose the style that you did? Were there any bumps in the road of the production of this special brew?  What did you name the beer? Did you cellar any of the beer for future enjoyment? How was the beer received?

Please respond to me directly and include your full name. With your approval, some of your responses may appear in the article.

Haven't done much celebratory beers in the past but plan on a Chicha for 12-21-12. Might not do that chewing up and spitting out thing :-X
