The next SPHBC meeting is Tuesday November 2nd @ 7pm at The Happy Gnome in St. Paul.We will be hosting John Leinenkugel for a talk and sampling of Big Eddy Imperial Stout. They should be to the Gnome by around 6:45pm and will be the first item on our “agenda”.”Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout, at 9.5% alcohol by volume, boasts a selection of eleven malts and grains, balanced by three distinct hops. Munich, Caramel and Chocolate malts combine with classic Pale and Pale Ale malts to provide a rich, dry character balancing Big Eddy’s hoppy assertiveness provided by Warrior, Summit and Glacier hops.”The 2007 edition of this beer was brewed at their small 10th Street brewery in Milwaukee, I have no idea if the same applies for the 2010 edition but the last time I had it it was a very nice beer.http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/leinenkugels-big-eddy-imperial-stout/78733/http://www.bizjournals.com/milwaukee/stories/2010/10/04/daily50.htmlWe’ll also talk about the upcoming Upper Mississippi Mash Out and, as usual, feel free to bring your homebrew to share.
