Welcome to the Keystone Hops Homebrew Club!
Get Ready, War of the Worts XIII is Coming February 23rd!
Is 13 Your Lucky Number?
The War of the Worts XIII is also the inauguration of the Keystone Cup club competition. Homebrew clubs accumulate points at the War of the Worts and the Malt Madness (September) when club members’ beers win. The club with the most points at the end of both competitions takes home the Keystone Cup. Complete rules can be found at www.keystonehomebrew.com
If nothing beats a Bud, given the choice, I’d take the nothing.
The Keystone Hops are an informally organized club of new and experienced brewers, ready to share advice, as well as beer, mead, cider and wine. In a relaxed and friendly environment the members will celebrate successes, commiserate over problems, and join together for a wide range of activities.
Club Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month. We meet at Keystone Homebrew Supply to share the fruits of our labors. A typical meeting will have 10 to 20 brewers, young and old, experienced and novice, bringing their masterpieces to be enjoyed and their disappointments to be diagnosed. Recipes, tips, and tall tales are passed around with excellent homebrew and light snacks. The gathering starts at 7 p.m, except December when we start at 8 due to holiday shopping. Bring a bottle or three and join us. Membership is free and you don’t have to join to attend.
The club has a variety of activities through the course of the year. They include:
The War of the Worts. The Delaware Valley’s largest homebrew competition. The competition is held in February,and has been an annual tradition for eleven years.
Big Brew held in the spring brings together club members to all brew together. (and coincidentally, party).
A Club Picnic is held in July of each year at an area farm. Club members are encouraged to come and have fun, and to camp overnight.
The Bourbon Barrel Brew is a fall tradition. Members combine to brew a heavy beer, which will be fermented in a bourbon barrel for a unique flavor profile.
BJCP Study sessions for aspiring judges are held periodically.
Informal Club Competitions where everyone is encourage to brew the same style, and judging is a light-hearted and informal process.
