TimeDrop off and Swap date
Beer swap and tasting
Final date for sign up to this event will be 12th March 2021
Due to the success of our previous beer swap and tasting session over the Christmas period we are looking to do the same format again. The basic idea is to swap at least one beer (two if you want!) with the rest of the group and then we have tasting sessions where we sample a selection of the beers, discuss the recipe, brewing techniques and generally have a good time.
So as an example, if there are six people involved in your swap group and you wish to provide two beers you will be expected to supply 12 bottles (6 of each) and these will be distributed between the other members of the group, you will then receive in return a bottle of every other beer from the other members of the group. You don’t have to submit two beers although this is preferable but if you only have one then you will just provide 6 bottles.
There are no rules on beer styles, just submit whatever you have.
All beers have now been sorted and will be ready for collection from Sunday 28th March.
Below are the dates for the tasting sessions. You will receive a notification on the date with a link to the online meeting. If you are one of the brewers make sure you have your recipe notes handy as many questions will be asked.
