Homebrewing Demonstration Day At Brew Time (Sept 18th) - Hamilton, ON

I received the following press release this morning from a group of Hamilton, ON homebrewers who will be holding a brewing demonstration in September. The event is open to anyone willing to learn about the joys of brewing your own beer.

August 19, 2011: Brew Time, in cooperation with a group of Hamilton brewers (known to themselves as HOZERs), invite you to spend a day learning about homebrewing on September 18th, 2011 at 1638 Upper James St. (just South of Rymal Rd.). This group of homebrewers will be demonstrating a range of homebrewing techniques and equipment from single-vessel systems through larger 3-vessel breweries. The group consists of novice homebrewers through ex-professional brewers.

"Homebrewers are proud of our craft, and usually take any opportunity we can get to show it off." explained Jason Stranak, one of the event organizers. "We hope to attract members of the public with an interest in craft beer, homebrewing or anyone who enjoys tasting hand-crafted full-flavoured beer."

Victor VanBeek of Brew Time has been generous in hosting this event, and will be participating in the homebrewing session. The Brew Time store will be open, selling the ingredients and equipment needed to start brewing and providing tours and explanations of their brewing equipment and process.

Date: Sunday, 18.September 2011
Time: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Location: Brew Time, 1638 Upper James St., Hamilton (just South of Rymal Rd.)

The HOZERs are a group of amateur brewers in the Hamilton area, and their name is an acronym standing for Hamilton Ontario Zymurgy Enthusiast Ring. Zymurgy refers to the biochemical processes involved in fermentation.
