This month around a dozen True Grist members met in Kitchener-Waterloo on Doug B.’s lovely backyard patio. The club discussed upcoming events including a cider bulk buy in the Fall (details developing on the forum here), and the potential of the club having a presence at some upcoming Fall beer festivals (those details are developing here). We expect to run another bulk buy with Frank E’s cider in Vanessa, ON as we did last year. Throughout the year we’ve had the opportunity to sample some of the different things True Grist members made with the juice from last year’s buy – diverse and delicious.
Beers sampled at this month’s meeting included several blondes, a raspberry wheat, cider, an aged brett blend saison, APAs, and others. The raspberry wheat in particular has been the subject of some extended discussion, and the recipe is now available on the forum courtesy of Jon K. Lots of raspberries, lemon zest, some citra hops… all good things. Recipe link here.
Next month the club will have it’s anniversary of it’s first meeting, on September 13th at 7PM in Guelph (RSVP here). We hope to see you there!
