Club Gueuze/ Lambic Project

We’re planning a group brew for Brew Haven and we want to go funky and sour on this one.  We will coordinate a group gueuze brew.  We plan on having individuals brew a traditional lambic recipe (60% base barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat- using a turbid mash) and leaving the beer open to the air […]

Stony Creek Brewery Tour

It’s been a while since we had a Brew Haven exclusive brewery tour, so let’s change that, shall we? Stony Creek Brewing in Branford will host Brew Haven members on Saturday, February 18, 2017. We will be given a private tour and we have asked that they specifically discuss, amongst other topics, their award-winning Dock […]

New Meeting Format

Brew Haven leadership sat down this weekend to hash out club business. Based upon input from the club and the success of the format of the stout competition, we’re going to change up the meeting format a bit. Rather than pass the monthly styles around the room, we’ll move to a format where people will […]
