Think you can tell the difference between an imitation lager and the real thing?
Join the DRAFT club at our next meeting on Monday, November 19th at 7:00 PM at Warped Wing Brewery to put your skills to the test!
You and your friends are invited to participate in a sensory experiment to determine if two beers from a split batch using two different fermentation methods are indistinguishable in taste. The event will include a discussion of the methods, impacts, and statistical analysis of the results.
Additionally, this meeting is the judging of the iron brewer competition! This go-around is the root and tuber experiment. Bring two of your best samples of a beer brewed by you with a root or tuber. A panel of judges will taste and grade your beers. The winner will choose the subject of our next iron brewer! Please label your beer with what it is (descriptive name/style) and a way to identify the brewer.
And as always, we’ll have a bottle share! Bring a couple homebrews and ask for feedback from your peers.

We organize these events to thank our generous sponsors throughout the year. Sometimes we even get a treat when we attend as a big group. This time, the brewer will be swinging by to get to know us and answer any questions we have about the brewery or brewing in general!
If they have a tap open, an infusion will likely be on tap for us.
As for food, they are looking into a food truck but we can carry in.
