I went to a talk with Chuck Hahn a few years ago. Entry was gold coin donation going to a charity (can’t remeber which) for a talk about brewing, the chemistry of brewing and beer. It was a very interesting talk, and towards the end they rolled out the full selection of James Squire beers for a beer tasting! Shortly after I got into brewing my own, and the rest is history – and a few hangovers.

I’d definitely be going if Mrs Kramer wasn’t 9 months pregnant :-/

And the Canberra Brewers will be doing a demo in the foyer, introducing all and sundry to the wonderful world of all-grain brewing. Mmmm, beer. As a member, I wholeheartedly recommend everyone to attend. And join the Canberra Brewers. And make your own beer.
