The day started off as any good brew day should, with donuts and beer.
Saturday, December 13th we brewed a Barleywine with the BRUDE homebrew group (based out of Erie/Longmont). Why? They made a really delicious Barleywine we wanted to share with the world, and they were gracious enough to let us brew it…And it seemed like a really fun thing to do, because this small group of homebrewers is an awesome group of enthusiastic, laid back, fun people. Plus, what good is it owning a brewery if you can’t share the joy of brewing with people who love to brew?
10 members joined us throughout the day to brew their recipe for an English Barleywine, which they decided to name “BRUDEley Wine”. We are shooting for 10-15% ABV and a rich flavor and well-rounded balance of hops and malt. Thank you to the BRUDE group for sharing your enthusiasm and your recipe with us.
