Beer School: Brewing Great Beer at Home + Intro to All-In-One Systems

1000 996 City Star Brewing
Join us for a special presentation by Bill Campbell of BREWMENTED: “Introduction to all-in-one brewing systems and brewing great beer at home”

Interested in learning how to brew beer the way brewers brew? It’s called all-grain brewing and the good news is that the tools and equipment needed to get started have been greatly simplified through the introduction of all-in-one brewing systems, several of which are now on the market.  We’ll cover the equipment you need to get started, talk about the ingredients that make up beer, go over what happens on brew day, and discuss fermentation schedules and bottling and/or kegging. We’ll also go through various all-in-one systems that are available, discussing their advantages and disadvantages.  Quick note, Brewmented uses all-in-one brewing systems for all of its experimental batches.

Bill Campbell is the co-owner of Brewmented, Longmont’s destination-style homebrew store, brewery, and taproom. Learn more about Brewmented’s supplies to homecraft your brew at www.brewmented.com.

She’s back and better than ever!

The newest creation from the City Star Zoller Barrel House – the 2019 vintage of Scarlet is a blend of sour stout aged in oak barrels for 2 years, sour imperial stout aged in oak barrels for 2.5 years, and Michigan Montmorency cherries. Soured with lactobacillus and pediococcus bacteria as well as brettanomyces yeast. The beer has a velvety smooth mouthfeel. Luscious waves of cocoa roll along the tongue, and the cherry sweetness rounds out the sour flavor profile. Each bottle is dipped in wax and hand stamped with the City Star Brewing seal.

A Beer Dinner Pairing Experience

150 150 City Star Brewing

We recently got to host an amazing beer dinner pairing with Juli Y Juan Kitchen and wow! What an experience it was. We originally wanted to collaborate with them after we had hosted them for a private celebration last year and we loved the food, energy, passion… EVERYTHING about working with this team. We recreated the magic and can’t wait to have them back again in May!

The 4 course dinner was expertly paired with 4 City Star beers served in our Zoller Barrel House and adjacent Great Room.

Here are some excerpts from Juliu Y Juan’s blog (https://www.juliyjuan.com/blog/2019/2/8/culinary-magic-under-the-city-star-brewery)

 

Nothing calls more our attention than a new challenge to make magic with new artists. This past January 31st we traveled to Berthoud where we had our first appearance and collaboration with another set of artistic hands in the world of brewing beer. Alongside John & Whitney, owners of City Star Brewing Co., the 4 of us joined passions and performed for 50 happy epicureans, as we share the delightful art of pairing. What an amazing and joyful time!!
