WILK Friday BeerBuzz–27 April 2012 Wyoming Valley Home Brewers w/Chuck Yarmey

WILKFridayBerbuzz14We broke a record today on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz, and we had a lot of fun doing it.  For the last 2 years, our friend Chuck Yarmey has quietly been the Alec Baldwin of the BeerBuzz; and today he takes the lead.  Much like Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin have battled for hosting the most Saturday Night Live shows, Chuck & Mike Hiller from Bavarian Barbarian Brewing have traded the lead on the BeerBuzz…and now Chuck is winning with 4-appearances today (to Mike’s 3.)

Chuck is founder and former president of the Wyoming Valley Home Brewers and we always have a great time talking home brews with him.  It’s taken us most of 2 years to convince John Webster that home-brewed beer doesn’t usually explode, but it only took us one visit to convince us all that home brewed beer can be VERY good.

The Big Brew is a collection of all of our national home brew clubs and their brewing of three official recipes designated by the national organizers all on the same day.

Today we decided to go with a zero-IBU show and feature some ancient ales. First up was a Summerian beer that uses bappir, a type of bread baked with honey & barley AND used to make the beer. Chuck was nice enough to also bring some bappir for us to try as well, which really gives you a sense of how the bread & grain flavor the beer. As a bonus, Chuck brought one of Jeff Fusco’s 3-year aged Meads into drink. A Mead is a honey based beverage and this one was a really good one.

If you’re interested in attending this day-long event locally or even just observing some great home brewing, please checkout the Wyoming Valley Homebrewers website for details. It’s an exciting event and a great opportunity to check out what home brewing is all about, AND just how good the beers can be.


to Chuck Yarmey, Jeff Fusco  & all the Wyoming Valley Homebrewers, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
