We showed up and brewed right there at the shop. After all, they refer to it a "your Homebrew shop." I was glad to assist by brewing in front of the shop for the AHA Big Brew this year. It coincided with a local art festival as well, so there we a lot of people passing by, checking us out and talking all things beer.
Check out the story and photos here on the Sanford Homebrew Shop site.
Yep, that was me hanging with the Renegade Reps and Cigar City. They must have been very impressed with the low tech nature of my brew system. But you know what, at the end of the day I was the one with the proper Original Gravity. ;-). It clearly isn't the size of the brew system that counts, now is it?
We were both brewing the Belgian Blonde Ale.
It was a great day, I learned a lot about brew systems and got to meet some more great beer people.
