Session #40 recapped, #41 a homebrew special

The SessionErik Myers has posted the recap for The Session #40: Session Beer, and it seems to have produced a lot more than a few tasting notes.

The July Session, #41, provides an opportunity to focus on specific beers. Jeff and Tom Wallace from Lugwrench Brewing ask us to write about “craft beers inspired by homebrewing.”

Write about a beer that has its roots in homebrewing. Write about a commercial beer that originated from a homebrew.

Write about a professional brewer you admire who got their start in homebrewing before they went pro. Write about a professional brewer who still homebrews in their free time.

Write about a Pro-Am beer tasted either at a festival or a brewpub. Write about an Amateur / Professional Co-op you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing (such as The Green Dragon Project).

Write about commercial brewers using “Homebrewing” as part of the marketing. Write about the Sam Adams LongShot beers, whether good or bad.

Write in the first person. Write in the third person. Have someone else write it for you.

Just write about it.

This would be a nice one to do live from the National Homebrewers Conference, don’t you think? Other than the fact that happens next week rather than next month. But I bet I can find a good story to repeat July 2.

    I think there will be someone there with a bunch of historical wheat beers for you. They’re even from your Wheat book. Seems we could get a few people together to taste them and comment. 🙂 Pictures and all. If brewers take anything from home brewers its the outlandish odd things.

    OK. Brad Kraus from Blue Corn Brewery in Santa Fe and Jason Yester from Trinity Brewing in Colorado Springs. They made more than a few things real from their homebrew roots.

    We grow the native hops of NM,,,we homebrew with different varieties of the hops we’ve developed,,,,and share those homebrews with real brewers like Brad and Jason. They noticed the qualities of the hops from our homebrews. They liked what they tasted. They developed recipes for their breweries for the different hops. They brewed for consumers using our hops. Their brews from the native hops sold super fast. All won.
    It worked!!! Folks love the neomexicana hops!!

    History happens fast.
