I'll be there for 2 meet the brewer sessions on bank holiday Monday at 2pm & 4pm so if you fancy a pint and the chance to ask me any questions come along. I'll be doing a short talk explaining the brewing process and the ingredients and what goes into my beers. If you're from the forum please introduce yourself so i know who you are. Hopefully see you there.

  5. It looks as though the bank holiday weather is going to be its normal wet self so why not let us take the strain of cooking your Sunday dinner (and washing the pots!) at The Harlequin on Nursery Street? A choice of roasted meats - Melt in the mouth Pork Loin or Topside of Beef (both sourced from Crawshaws butchers) or home cooked vegetarian option, all served with home roasties, beer batter Yorkshire puds, seasonal veg and beer and onion gravy. Home made desserts also available. Wash it down with a few pints of our finest hand crafted ales (see here for list http://wp.me/PMcbj-u ) or our range of soft drinks or freshly ground coffee. £6 mains, £3 deserts (but we don't get many people who can manage a dessert!)
  6. As you may / may not know 1 own a small craft brewery in Sheffield called The Brew Company and also a freehouse called The Harlequin. The Harlequin is having a home brew competition in July dubbed ‘Brew Off 2010’. We are asking home brewers to brew the best beer they can then either bottle it or put into Cornelius kegs. The bottled or kedged beers must then be brought along to the pub by the end of June where a panel of beer bloggers, landlords, local craft brewers and CAMRA officials will form a blind tasting panel and all the beers will be marked on appearance, flavour, aroma and impact. The winner and two runners up will then get to go to The Brew Company and scale up the winning recipes to full size commercial brews before trying the finished product on the bar a few weeks later. Home brewers wishing to take part in the competition should in the first instance contact The Brew Company on 0114 2709991 (leave a message) or by using the contact form on my website at http://www.thebrewcompany.co.uk I hope many of you will be able to take part for what proves to be a fun event with an exciting conclusion for the winner and runners up.
