Brewing Rabble of Eastern Washington   [ home ] [ big brew ] [ beer reference ] [ archives ] [ Recipe Maker ]
Beer Date: Thursday, November 26, 2015
"Advertised as the 'champagne of beers', but that's much too frou-frou. I like 'carbonated butter'. Miller High Life is big slabs of deer meat on a toasted roll. It's dirty fingernails scooping out pumpkin pie. It makes even the most sterile suburbanite feel like a Teamster. It's outstanding."
From The Big 'Ol Black Table Beer Run
The Brewing Rabble is an organization of committed home brewers and craft-beer drinkers. The club is geographically based in Stevens County, Washington and the surrounding area. In existence since 1996 the Brewing Rabble usually meet on the occasion of the first Saturday of every month. The Club lives by the Cervantian notion that "We brew when we have occasion, and sometimes when we have no occasion", at least occasionally.
Next Meeting -   7 Novemberber, Saturday, Noon at Dominion Distillery, 116 N Main, Colville, This is a normal meeting with Potluck and Brews, the usual, in an unusual setting.
