WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 2 Nov 2012 Wyoming Valley Homebrewers w/Chuck Yarmey & Dan Schreffler

WILKFridayBerbuzz8Sometimes its not easy trying to sum up weeks of preparation and a 15-minute radio show in a few paragraphs.  So much happens in a week and so many details go into 15-minutes of airtime, it just seems impossible to put it to words…well not this week….because this week we’re talking home-brewing!

Today we welcomed Chuck Yarmey and Dan Schreffler into the studio to help promote Learn To Homebrew Day.  We’ve had Chuck on the show before and in fact I believe with today’s appearance, Chuck has risen to first place for most appearances on the WILK Friday BeerBuzz….and while Dan may be new to the show he’s not new to beer.  Chuck & Dan are not only active homebrewers, but they are very good at it…and even better at teaching it to others….and that’s what brought them on the show today.

Every year the Wyoming Valley Homebrewers and the Scranton Brewers Guild co-host a Learn To Hombrew Day.  The guys (and girls) get together and demonstrate homebrewing.  This year the event will be held tomorrow (Nov 3rd) at the Waldorf Park Tiki Club in Scranton from 10AM - 4PM and whether you’re contemplating homebrewing yourself, you’re just interested in learning about it or if you simply want to hang out with a bung of people that love craft beer, this is your day.  From 10AM to 4PM there will be a variety of demonstrations and informational sessions, as well as club display and even equipment for sale so DO stop by and check it out.

So of course we sampled some great homebrews today….I mean what Friday BeerBuzz would be complete without beer? With Chuck & Dan in house we decide to sample a Belgian-style Strong ale from Dan and an Imperial Pumpkin from club [president Ed Elliot. Before you think homebrews are not as good as commercial let me say you are wrong. As you gain experience hombrewing, you can brew VERY good beer and these guys have proven it again today. Dan’s Belgian strong uses white grapes and it’s aged on oak. The complexity of flavors imparted by the yeast he chose made this a wonderful beer. Ed’s Imperial Pumpkin was a perfect fall-beer and with notes of pumpkin & spices…this beer was both complex and boozy…in a very good way….perfect for an 8:30AM show!

Stop by on Saturday and you can meet both Chuck & Dan as well as the other homebrewers and ask them how they do it….and I’ll bet they’ll be happy to show you.

Thank you to Chuck Yarmey & Dan Schreffler from the Wyoming Valley Homebrewers, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.

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