Big Brew Day

If you are interested in watching a beer being brewed, please be at J Ryans, 253 East Water St, Syracuse. We will be outside next to the patio on the grass. If you plan to brew a beer, please bring all your ingredients and equipment to J Ryans to begin brewing at 10 am sharp.  We want to brew a club beer (we decided on an IPA) for the Spring Fling party (to be held Saturday, June 14 at the Shafer residence --pool yard behind garage located at 412 Cypress St, Liverpool.) For the club brew, we need volunteers to bring equipment and ingredients for this--who can bring what?
