"You can only drink 30 or 40 glasses of beer a day, no matter how rich you are."
- Adolphus Busch
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, and as Don Quixote would say "We brew when we have occasion, and sometimes when we have no occasion".
Next Meeting -  2 August, Saturday, at Ferd's! Noon, Potluck, the usual.

Time for a little MONKey Business (Ouch!)

Field Trip - Spokane Brew Tour- 14 June - MISSION COMPLETE
Yes, the mighty field trip is complete. Made it to (I think) Waddell's, 12 Strings, Latah Creek Winery (Huh?), Hopped Up, English Setter, Iron Goat, Ramblin Road, back to Waddell's.
Between destinations we held spectacular events like, "Sneak across the Idaho Border", "Knock, knock, knock over that Bottle", "Wheel of Beer Fortune", and the action-packed "Beer-Yoga Competition". Just take a look at the three finalists to your right. Always something for everyone on another Brewing Rabble Adventure.
Hear what some of the attendees had to say:
Jack - "a far, far, better thing"
Ferd - "Now is the winter of our discontent. Made glorious summer by this beer of mine."
Anon - "Hamma brrrrr, bus there? flubrrmmlumph!"
Finalists: Beer Yoga
