November Meeting: Lager Brewing with Escarpment Labs

Location: Rainhard Brewing Co
Date: Monday November 13th, 2023
Time: 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM ET

The yeast gods smile upon us - Escarpment Labs is back! Join us this November to learn the ins and outs of brewing with the elusive and fastidious beasts called Saccharomyces pastorianus ( also known as lager yeast)! Crispy Bois incoming. This meeting will be back in the West End at our familiar Rainhard Brewing Co. spot!

It wouldn't be a homebrewing meeting without homebrew, so bring your latest creation and don’t forget to bring your tasting glass! Bonus points if it's Brew Slam branded...

Also, don't forget to patronize our hosts! Rainhard 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!
