December Meeting

The December meeting this year was quite the event.  Once again meeting at the Barnhart's house instead of our Half Moon home.  Taking advantage of being "away from home", we explored the world of commercially produced porters & stouts with a few homebrews thrown in for good mesure.  After all, it is a homebrew club meeeting.

20 people in total were in attendance.  15 took part in the brew club meeting, 4 were taking part in the "Occupy the Homebrew Club" drinking wine & 1 was  a double agent.  It was a good thing the garage had been prepared for the event by turning it into a Christmas themed room complete with faux brick walls, massive picture window and festive skull chandelier, a holdover from the Halloween room, but one of the skulls did have a Santa hat on.

The beers outnumbered the people.  A total of 21 different beers were in attendance.  They were;
          Porters
Samuel Smith Taddy Porter
Utenos Premium Porter
Aldaris Porteris
