Plug: Come homebrew in Redmond Saturday, and buy my book!

Cascade Fermentation AssociationThis Saturday, the 31st, Redmond’s homebrew club, the Cascade Fermentation Association is having their monthly group brew—and I’m the guest of honor. It ties in with my book Bend Beer: A History of Brewing in Central Oregon and the theme is “Brewing with Jon Abernathy” in that I’ve selected the recipe (Dusseldorf-style Altbier) and I’ll be set up with books for sale and to help brew and chat and drink beer with anyone who wants to come by.

So please do! If you’re interested in homebrewing (either learning as a beginner, or are more advanced and just enjoy the process), or interested in beer and history and/or books, come on out! The brew day is open to anyone who wants to check it out.

We’ll be starting brewing by 11am, and it’s all taking place at Redmond Craft Brewing Supply, located at 235 SW 6th Street (about a block and a half from Wild Ride Brewing). It’s also a good opportunity to acquaint yourself with Redmond’s homebrew shop and get a handle on the local beer scene (there are some interesting things coming up for Redmond beer!).

See you there! (I’ll sign your books, too!)
