Toronto - "Are You An SOB?" (Southern Ontario Brewers)
« on: November 04, 2009, 12:47:10 PM »
Our Group has its internet home for now on Facebook...
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=15448345999


Our upcoming event...
November 7th is "Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day".

The SOBs are planning a public Big Brew at the Amsterdam Brewing Company in downtown Toronto.

We have space for about 16 "Are you an SOB?" homebrewers, and have now determined who will be brewing that day. We're hoping that everyone else will come out, not only to meet each other, but maybe "brew-b****", and also to educate the public about our hobby.

The Amsterdam Brewery will also be open, with public tours of the brewery, and Amsterdam beers will be available to sample. Better yet, buy a case to take home!

Other items available for purchase include "Are You an SOB?" T-shirts, items from Craft brewers Recycled Art Project, and brewing kits and other supplies from homebrewersretail.com

Sponsors
Amsterdam Brewing
Weyermann Specialty Malts

P.S. Amsterdam Brewmaster Jamie Mistry has written a recipe for home-brewing "Amsterdam Nut Brown"... See Roger Beal's brew set-up for the recipe. Look for a clone contest in the next couple of months!

I am an SOB.  My club, IAMNSOB (Iowa/Minnesota Society of Brewers) just celebrated it's first anniversary.  It seems that we could create some sort of international collaboration!  We are located at home.mchsi.com/~iamnsob   and iamnsob@mchsi.com  We are few in number but large in enthusiasm.  SOB's unite!!
We're wanted men, we'll strike again, but first let's have a beer...

Planning on coming to NHC 2010?  About 100 miles from here. Could I buy one of those t-shirts?  Ours are still in the planning stage but will say "Wanna be an SOB?"  I think it would be fun to trade beers and just know we have some friends in the real Great White North.

If you're not busy on April 22nd, make sure you come to the Granite Brewery (in Toronto) to learn about the SOBs new contest.

SOB Competitions Director and BJCP judge Roger Beal and I are still working out the contest details, but we wanted to get the invite out to ensure a good crowd... (to repeat, there will be no details on the contest until April 22)

to get on the list visit

see “Up Coming Events”
