March 2015 Club Meeting - A&M Wine and Beer Supplies

Sunday, March 15th, 2015 at 12pm - 5pm

Location: 202 South Main St. Washington, PA 15301

This event is in the past.

The club's March 2015 meeting will be held at A&M Wine and Beer Supplies in Washington, PA at 2:00 PM on March 15th.  This will be a joint meeting with WRASH - the Washington Rebel Association of Serious Homebrewers ( and possibly some other clubs.

Obviously Washington, PA is a bit of a trip for most of us, so the good folks at A&M are going above and beyond to make this meeting one that you'll want to attend:

- First, they are offering a 10% discount on all in-store purchases made that day.

- Second, they will be organizing a bulk grain sale for members of TRASH, WRASH, and the other clubs.  The sale will work similar to group buys you may have participated in previously.  There will be a price list (to be distributed next week) with a list of bulk items such as sacks of grain, hops, etc.  You pre-order your bulk supplies and pick them up at A&M on the day of the meeting.  The meeting starts at 2:00, but you can pick up your bulk order items starting at noon.  Full details (price list, how to order, deadline, etc.) will be sent out next week.

As always, please bring plenty of homebrew to share - bottles, growlers, kegs, whatever works for you.  Get input and feedback from your friends and peers or just share some beer and enjoy the company.

Mini Competition
In the spirit of friendly competition and club member involvement, TRASH holds a themed mini-competition once per quarter.  These competitions are losely organized, are not BJCP-sanctioned, and are open to any dues-paid member of the club.  The theme of each competition varies and the rules are simple: brew a beer that meets the criteria laid out for that quarter and bring it to the meeting.  All beers will be sampled by those in attendance and a winner chosen in a "taster's choice" fashion.  Prizes may be available to the winners.  Bragging rights will definitely be available.

For March 2015, the theme for the mini-competition will be Dry Stout.  The rules are simple: brew a dry stout based on the style definition set forth in Category 10A of the 2008 BJCP Style Guidelines.  You can brew it from a kit or your own recipe, all-grain or extract, using whatever ingredients you want.  It just needs to be identifiable as a dry stout.  There is no need to pre-register to compete.  Just bring a growler or six pack of your beer to the meeting and wait for the votes to be tallied.

Watch for info on the bulk grain sale next week.  Please RSVP to let us know if you're coming.  See you there!
