November, 2015 Member Meeting

The Beer Barons of Milwaukee MEMBER ONLY BELGIAN NIGHT is Wednesday, November 18th at our usual location, Cliffords Supper Club in Hales Corners.

Belgian night carries a $10 meeting fee and is reserved for members only. Any guests wishing to attend will need to sign-up as a member, pay the prorated membership dues ($10) and the regular meeting fee.  The $20 charge will make their membership current up to January 31st, 2016.  At the meeting new members will receive a 2015 membership card.  Until supplies run out, all new members will be given two complimentary tasting glasses.

 Belgian Night! This year we're going to do things a little different. This year we're taking the bottles away from you! Members will blind taste three beers from three different Belgian styles: Saison/Farmhouse, Tripel and Belgian Dark Strong.  We'll be doing a short discussion following each style.  What did you perceive? Were there any flaws? What did or didn't you like about each example?  Do you think this beer was brewed in Belgium or was it an American interpretation?  We're going to find out what we perceive when we take away the labels. Discussion will be short and informal (no lectures, no guests). At the end of the night we may even have a couple specialty Belgian beers to enjoy for social hour.  You won't want to miss this one as many of these beers are unavailable in Wisconsin.

As always we're looking for homebrew for November's meeting. We'd like each member who brings a keg to talk a little about the beer you're sharing. This allows you to better showcase your homebrew as well as receive constructive feedback from the club.  If you bring a keg (or enough bottles to share) to the meeting and email the board in advance to let us know what you are bringing, we will give you $20 for your ingredients.  Please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

The October meeting will be a commercial meeting ($10) featuring Gordon Lane from Briess Malt/Biloba Brewing.  Gordon will be discussing brewing-related malt topics. In addition, yeast handling has also been a hot topic on our Baron's forum and Gordon will field any questions regarding yeast handling so make sure to bring your malting/mashing/yeast handling questions with you. We'll have Biloba Brewing Co. beer on tap as well as samples of Elysian Brewing and 10 Barrel Brewing provided by our own Rich Heller.

As always we're looking for homebrew for October's meeting. We'll be sampling several hop-centric commercial beers this month so malt-forward homebrews would be much appreciated. We'd like each member who brings a keg to talk a little about the beer you're sharing. This allows you to better showcase your homebrew as well as receive constructive feedback from the club.  If you bring a keg (or enough bottles to share) to the meeting and email the board in advance to let us know what you are bringing, we will give you $20 for your ingredients.  Please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

September, 2015 Member Meeting

The Beer Barons of Milwaukee invite you to attend our upcoming member meeting, Wednesday, September 23rd at our usual location, Cliffords Supper Club in Hales Corners.

The September meeting will be a homebrew meeting ($5) featuring more lager beer deliciousness. Our own Brian Joas will be talking European lager BJCP categories 4 - 7.  We'll have ten different homebrew examples from these categories for you to sample including some styles you may have never tasted before.  Each brewer will talk a little bit about their beer so make sure to ask any questions or provide feedback.  We'll be providing placemats and sampling cups for anyone who would like to do a side-by-side evaluation of each style.  We want this to be as interactive as possible so I encourage anyone who is interested in these styles to read up on them before the meeting.

This month we are specifically looking for a couple of non-malt-forward homebrews for the meeting.  If you have something hop-forward, barrel-aged or otherwise non-European lager like we would encourage you to consider bringing it to the meeting. As alway we'd like each member who brings a keg to talk a little about the beer you're sharing. This allows you to better showcase your homebrew as well as receive constructive feedback from the club.  If you bring a keg (or enough bottles to share) to the meeting and email the board in advance to let us know what you are bringing, we will give you $20 for your ingredients.  Please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

The July meeting will be a commercial meeting ($10) featuring Karben4 Brewing Company out of Madison. Brewmaster Ryan Koga along with owners Alex Evan and Zak Koga will be our guests. Karben4 is currently in limited distribution in the Milwaukee area so this will be an excellent opportunity to sample taproom-only beers while talking with the guys at K4 about their rapid success in the Wisconsin brewing industry.

This month we have Bill Tressler, owner of Hinterland Brewing & Gastropubs as guest speaker.  Hinterland Gastropub continues to be one of the most highly rated restaurants in Milwaukee and they have also been collaborating with local craft brewers and retailers recently so this should be a very interesting meeting. We'll be sampling some of Hinterland's year-round, seasonal and taproom-only beers.
