2013 hop rhizomes expected at the Bell’s General Store on March 30

Our rhizome supplier has been experimenting with some different growing techniques and as a result, has produced some very large stock for this year (see photo for an example).

We are expecting delivery on March 30 at the General Store in downtown Kalamazoo.

 More information to come as we receive it.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled.

The General Store’s David Curtis and Ryan Kramer will lead a homebrewing class at Tillers International in Scotts on March 16.

Cost is $95 per person, which includes lunch and beer to take home, for this all day, all grain workshop (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.).

Just added recipes for a Biere de Garde, Mid-Winter Pale Ale and Rye Porter to our Homebrewing page. Cheers!

"I hope this shows that you don’t have to have been homebrewing for years to make good beer. Anyone who is passionate about brewing and takes the time to learn about the art and science of the craft can apply what they learn and brew beer they are proud to share with others."

— We’re tapping the winning beer from our 3rd Annual Homebrew Competition at the Eccentric Cafe tomorrow at 3 p.m. Read more about the winner and his beer on the Bell’s Blog.
