It ended up being a chilly day, so when we met at the Art Museum, we decided to bail on the picnic idea.  There was 10 of us, and the revised plan was to ride to A Full Plate in Northern Liberties to open some homebrews and eat lunch.  We took a nice slow ride around the river drives on our way across town.

Upon arriving at a full Full Plate, we ended up going into Homeslice pizza instead.  It is also a Byo, and run by the owners of Full Plate.  We ordered some pizzas and dove right in.  Some delicious samples were passed around, including 2 different Pliny the Elder clones.  It was interesting to see the different takes on the same beer.

We also spent some time planning our June ride and brewday.  Plan ahead for June 26th and 27th!  We’ll be riding to Tom’s house in Collegeville and brewing a collaborative Saison.  A true Beer by Bike brew!

Sorry, no pictures this time!  I had my camera, but forgot to use it!

Also many thanks to Homeslice for hosting 10 hungry and thirsty bikers on a moments notice!


Our ride for this month will be on Saturday, March 27th.  It will be a bit different from our usual rides, in that we will all be providing the beer.  The idea is to try out various homebrews that we have all made.  I’m asking everyone to bring at least 4 bottles (or 48ozs) of either beer you’ve made yourself, or beer you love and would like the try to make yourself.  We’ll take a ride, and then, weather permitting, have a little picnic and try some beer.  We will also be using this ride to collaborate and plan a group homebrew that we’ll brew this summer.  So bring your ideas in addition to your beer!

Here are the details:  Saturday March 27th, 11am at the Art Museum.  Bring 4 bottles of homebrew (or favorite beer), and some food if you want.  The route and final destination are TBD.  See you then!

After a 2 year hiatus, I’m planning on brewing a batch of beer again.  Thanks to Tom’s prodding, I’ve finally made the effort to plan this out.  Notes and recipe are posted in Tom’s blog, so I won’t repeat here.

But the exciting thing is that during those 2 years, while I might not have been brewing, our beer has.  We have about 3 gallons of what was a Belgian IPA that has been sitting in a carboy with some sour yeast since November 2007.  We plan on bottling it this Sunday, in conjunction with our brew day.  I’m really excited to see how this beer tastes.

Updates, notes and maybe even pics to follow.  And if you feel like hanging out in Collegeville this Sunday with some sour beer and boiling kettles, just let me know.
