Brewing and Beer Related Stuff / Re: K-cup bud lite

When the wife and I go out we generally drink a couple of beers each. Any town we're in, that has a bar, is at least a 17 mile drive home. 
There is a a little pub that has a good selection of craft beers. However, they're about 6 bucks each. We can have the PBR's for under $5 total, go home and drink home brew. I can make 10 gallons of beer for what those 4 craft beers cost. We do go there every once in a while, but you just can't beat a cold, draft, PBR for a buck.  :Stout:

Hi Jon, 
I live in Vernon so not far at all.  I am interested in getting together for a brew and some beer talk. Maybe we could set something up when my new batch is ready. You could give me some thoughts. Just dry hoped two days ago so should be ready just before the meeting. We can figure out what works.

I like PBR after a day out kayaking or working out in the sun.  One of my fellow local homebrewers thought I was nuts (maybe he thinks that anyway) until we had been out kayaking on a 95+ degree day and I handed him a can of cold PBR. He changed his mind immediately.

Hi Larry,

I'm also new to this group so I can tell you first hand that these guys are very knowledgeable (and pretty awesome too lol). Unfortunately I won't be able to make the next meeting but If you're in the South Windsor area you're more than welcome to drop by for a couple brews and conversation.

Well I jumped right into all grain brewing about a year ago with a couple of my buddies thinking it would be a pretty good hobby to get together have a couple beers and hoped to make something worth drinking. Started with an IPA recipe we found online and second batch jumped to 10 gallons. We have been making a new England style double and making adjustments every batch. Trying to find a happy medium with all of our Tastes. It's a lot to learn but very interesting. I am looking forward to talking with people who are also interested in this craft.

Welcome Larry, as the date gets closer a location should be chosen and posted on the calendar. If you don't see it a few days before the meeting just email the contact address, info@kotmf.com.

Tell us a little more about yourself, what's you favorite style to brew?

Hi all,
My name is Larry and I have been brewing 10 gallon all grain batches for about 1 year.
I am interested in coming to one of your meetings to talk with the members. 
I have my latest batch ready now and a new batch that will be ready before the next meeting if someone wants to sample and give me some helpful feedback. 
Any info on the meeting would be great. 
Thanks Larry

PBR is my golf course beer.  With triple digit temps here,  I want something ice cold and PBR seems to fit the bill pretty good.

PBR is much better. My wife and I can go to the local Applebee's any day, any time and get mugs for a buck. We don't do it often, but it's good for a change.

There's other cheap beers that are better. Maybe not drastically better, but...
