Upcoming Thirsty Thursdays (moved to Tuesday)

The September and October “Thirsty Thursdays” will be on Tuesdays! For this month, the Wort Hogs will visit the Lost Rhino Retreat on TUESDAY, Sept 29 7-10pm. (Tuesday means that Rob & Cathy’s daughter Jen, whom some of you know, can join us visiting from Denver.) We can share homebrew and will have an upstairs glass-walled room to ourselves. Lost Rhino Retreat is at 22885 Brambleton Plaza, in Ashburn,

For October, we will visit Aslin Brewing in Herndon on TUESDAY, Oct 27 6-9pm. Aslin is officially closed on Tuesday, so we will get the place to ourselves with the brewer(s) and owner(s), and care share homebrew. Aslin is at 257 Sunset Park Dr in Herndon,

These will be the last 2 Thirsty Thursdays of the year, as Nov 26 is Thanksgiving & Dec 24 is Christmas Eve.

If you plan to attend either of these events, please email worthogsofficers@gmail.com, as both of these venues have requested a head count.

Cheers all, hope to see you there!

September Meeting

The September Wort Hogs meeting will be Wednesday, Sept 9, 2015 at 7:30 pm at the Mellow Mushroom in Herndon, Virginia.

This months competition is People’s Choice.  That means any style goes, so bring that beer you have been saving or just bring whatever you have on tap.

If you are interested in entering the competition, please e-mail worthogsofficers@gmail.com informing us of your beer and specific BJCP style and substyle it corresponds to.  Please be sure to bring enough beer to share.  We recommend at least 64 oz (a standard growler or a 6 pack)

Please feel free to bring any other brews you would like to share for after the competition.

August Thirsty Thursday

This month’s Thirsty Thursday will be August 27th from 6-9pm and will be hosted by Brew LoCo located at 19382 Diamond Lake Dr, Lansdowne VA.  Brew LoCo plans to have a couple of beers available from the Richmond area that are not normally distributed in the Northern Virginia region, hopefully the selections will include Ardent Honey Ginger Ale and Adventure Grapefruit Wheat.  If you have any special requests, please notify brewloco@gmail.com.

Brew LoCo is owned and operated by fellow Wort Hog Cathy Frye.

Please note that due to licensing restrictions, Brew LoCo will be pouring tastings and growler fills only

August Meeting

The August Wort Hogs meeting will be Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Crooked Run Brewing, located at 205 Harrison St SE at Market Station in Leesburg.

There is no competition this month, but please bring some samples of your latest brew to share.  Also note that Crooked Run does not serve food, so this month is Bring Your Own.
