September 2015 TRASH Meeting - Oktoberfest! at Armand & Sue's

Saturday, September 19th, 2015 at 2pm - 6pm

Location: 111 Gadshill Place Pittsburgh, PA 15237

This event is in the past.

Once again the club will return to the home of Sue and Armand Houle in mid-September for our much loved Oktoberfest celebration.  If you like German beer & food and great company, this is a can't miss meeting.  If you've not been to this meeting, come hungry as our gracious hosts prepare quite a spread of traditional German fare.  Please be sure to RSVP so they know how much food to make.

To cover the costs associated with preparing such a feast, we'll be collecting $5 from club members and $10 from guests.  You'll get your money's worth.  If you wear a dirndl or lederhosen we'll wave the fee.  You earned it!

As with all our meetings, please come packin' homebrew - German styles especially if you got 'em.

Mini Competition
It's time for another quarterly mini-competition.  Last year we kept it to the Marzen & Festbier styles.  This year we're opening it up to all malty, moderate-strength German styles of ale and lager from the new 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines:

  • 4A - Munich Helles, 4B - Festbier, 4C - Helles Bock
  • 6A - Marzen, 6B - Rauchbier, 6C - Dunkles Bock
  • 7B - Altbier
  • 8A - Munich Dunkel, 8B - Schwarzbier
  • 10A - Weissbier, 10B - Dunkels Weissbier

Bring your best example of one of these styles and try to best your friends and foes in a battle of brews!
