We are heading over to Brewhaha Homebrew Supply for our June meeting to learn more about the process of making beer.

Mac, the owner of BrewHaHa, is such a nice guy and a wealth of knowledge. He will give us a short lesson on what goes into beer and how it’s brewed. So even if you’re not interested in brewing your own, the information presented will help to grow appreciation for the work that is put into each bottle of craft beer.

And of course, no meeting is complete without a sampling. So we will feature 2 pairings of craft beer and gourmet cheese! Capital City Beverages, Inc. will be supplying the beer and creating the pairings.

The store will be open for business for our group. So if you’ve ever been curious about brewing beer or how beer is made, this is the meeting for you! And remember this is a LADIES ONLY event. So bring a friend or come alone. It’s going to be good time! Hope to see everyone there!
