Meeting on Tuesday, May 15th @ The Home Brewery


The Next Meeting of the Zymurgists of The Ozarks is this Tuesday, May 15th at 7:30 PM.  As always, we’ll meet at The Home Brewery located at 1967 Boat St  Ozark, MO 65721.  If you need directions to the store, feel free to call them at (417) 581-0963.

This month’s theme is Dark Lagers.  We’ll be discussing different types of dark lager, sampling a few, and sharing home brew. If you have a homebrewed dark lager, we’d love to try it.  If you don’t, but have some homebrew, well, we’d love to try that, too.  If you don’t have any homebrew, just stop by your favorite beer store and pick up something to sample.  All beers and people are welcome.

Also, as special guests, we are expecting a visit from the guys at Hellbender Meadery.  They are a new meadery preparing to open in Rogersville, Missouri, and they’ll be bringing some of their wares to sample, as well.

As alway, bring some snacks if you can.  Beer is always better with snacks.

See you tomorrow night!


Big Brew Day 8 days away!

OK, so the AHA Big Brew Day is next Saturday, May 5th.  If you want to participate by bringing your equipment and brewing, pleae RSVP to Todd as soon as possible.  You can email him at or call him at 417-581-0963. He will also want to know if you need him to prepare one of the AHA-devised recipe for you.  Make sure and specify if you want to brew the American Brown Ale or the Northern English Brown Ale recipe and if you will be brewing extract or all-grain.

Brewing the AHA-created recipe is the only way to count your batch in the totals of the Big Brew Day, so if you plan to particpate, we ask that you brew one of the two Brown Ale recipes they provide on their site.  We’ll get started brewing at 10 am and we’ll be haning out and meeting whoever stops by all day.  It’s a great way to meet fellow homebrewers and possibly expand the membership of our club. 


Thanks, everyone!

We’ll see you Tuesday night at The Home Brewery!
