August 2015

The July meeting of the First State Brewer’s was hosted by Brian Light July 17, 2015. It was a beautiful summer evening that allowed for some outdoor time until the uninvited mosquitoes showed up.

Here’s the meeting attendance.

Craig Wensell led a discussion on how we as home brewers can help to inform regulators and politicians on home brewing and the blossoming beer culture in Delaware. The level of awareness is low and needs to be raised. We also discussed how as a club we could advocate for change and modernization of regulations to allow our culture to flourish. Good luck Craig in dealing with getting your permits for Bellefonte Brewing in place.

We would again like to thank Brian for hosting the meeting as such a gracious host

Ron Price has now opened Blue Earl Brewing in Smyrna. Stop by and support a fellow
