WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 3 May 2013 Wyoming Valley Homebrewers w/Chuck Yarmey & Ed Elliot

It’s always a fun time when today’s guest visits our studio.  Not only does he hold the record for most appearances on the show, but he’s also nice enough to bring us several unique beers to sample every time.

Chuck Yarmey founded the Wyoming Valley Homebrewers many moons ago, and he’s still very active in the club and in homebrewing locally.  Chuck also brought with him current Wyoming Valley Homebrewers president Ed Elliot.  The Wyoming Valley Homebrewers were on the show today in support of the 2013 American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Big Brew that occurs tomorrow 5/4.  Every year thousands of home brewers get together worldwide and on May 4th they don’t just brew beer, they symbolically contribute to the “Big Brew.”  Each year the AHA totals up all of the beer brewed and releases the info.  They also recommend standard recipes, and this year the recipes come from the GABF Pro-Am competition winners.  While not everyone sticks to these recipes, this years Big Brew beers are:

More Fun Blonde (New Belgium / Jay Shambo)
Pointon’s Proper (RAM Restaurant & Scott Pointon)
Classic American Pilsner (Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery & Kyle Sisco)
One of my favorite parts of hosting the homebrewers (other than tasting the beer) is busting all the myths people may have about homebrewing…so I’ll attempt to bust many of them in one sentence….Homebrewing is NOT expensive, the process is NOT dangerous, you can build or buy your own equipment easily & affordably, it is NOT difficult to do and finally the beer can be VERY good.

If you’re interested in trying it or checking out the Big Brew day tomorrow, check out the wyomingvalleyhomebrewers.org website and contact the guys.

Of course we sampled beers today, and of course they were good.  Today we sampled a great Double IPA as well as a really special bourbon barrel aged breakfast stout.  These beer are not only very good examples of some classic beer styles, but also a testament to how good a home brew can be.  My thanks to everyone who brewed these beers for us to sample on the show.

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

fun Friday.
