June Meeting: Everything You Wanted To Know About Mashing with Pietro Caira!

Location: People's Pint Brewing Company
Date: Monday June 13th, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM ET

This month we are SUPER excited to be back to IN PERSON meetings!!! And since we haven't had a proper in person meeting in, oh, about 2+ years it's going to be exciting since there's a lot of new stuff to announce! Firstly, our "west" meeting location has changed to be at PEOPLE'S PINT BREWING CO. 90 Cawthra Ave in Toronto. Secondly, we're stoked to hear People's Pint's head brewer and former GTA Brews member Pietro Caira talk to us about all things Mash related (well, almost all things - I don't think Pietro's going to talk about the "Monster Mash". . . . . ) !

As we are now back to in-person meetings, please be respectful of the presenters and keep your chatting to a minimum.

Also, please don't forget to patronize our hosts!! People's Pint offers a wide selection of fine beers to go so don't hesitate to grab some especially if you don't get out to see them as often as you'd like!

Don’t forget to bring your tasting glass!

Presentation: Everything You Wanted To Know About Mashing with Pietro Caira!!

Pietro started brewing back in 2011 when my wife brought a Brooklyn Brew Shop 1 gallon kit home to try out. When the beer turned out pretty good I just dove in full tilt. Shortly after I met a few other home brewers and eventually I found myself amongst a great community of creative and talented individuals. I met my now business partner Doug through an event series that showcased the creativity of home brewers such as Jeff Manol, Brad Clifford and Jeremy Skorochid, all who'd eventually open their own breweries. That led to partnering with Doug to expand the rosters which gave birth to People's Pint Brewing Collective. Naturally, our next move was to open a brewery of our own and four years and a lot of ups and downs later we're here, still brewing the best beer for all to enjoy.

Style Of The Month (FINAL):

Emily will be in-person for her final "Style Of The Month" presentation for June! The final category that Emily will present on is Mead! Emily will be looking at the mead style guidelines in more detail. We'll miss seeing Emily and hearing the various styles!! Thanks for all your hard work on this Emily!
