Untappd - the social network for beer lovers!

I assume you love drinking different kinds of beer - that's why you signed up for our Erie Beer Society in the first place.  If you have a smartphone, I recommend you sign up for Untappd, the social network for beer lovers.

 

I've been using it for a few months now and I think it's fantastic.  It's really helped me learn about new brews from other people I follow.  For the nerd in me, I can collect badges after I have tried…

Beer-y funny

A friend of mine sent me this...sounds like a safe investment to me!

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Nortel stock a year ago it would be worth $49.00 now. Enron ? You’d have $16.50 left. WorldCom? - $5.00 whole dollars.…

Has anyone heard anything about an "International" brewfest this year? The one I attended last year was at Brewerie and I believe it was in November. It was all bottled beer from around the world. I'm hoping they do it again this year... great time. If anyone has the the scoop... please let know.

Thanks!

June meeting a success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the June meeting at Calamari's. We had a great time! I really enjoyed the beer -- Phoenix from Sly Fox -- and I am interested to know what everyone thought. More hops taste than I thought I'd like, but I really did like it. That's the beauty of the society -- the opportunity to try something new, and meet lots of new people!

I also wish to thank everyone who participated in our short survey. Your feedback will help us create better events and…

Kelleys Island Brewery

I had an opportunity to go to the Kelley’s Island Brewery last week with a group of WQLN members and really enjoyed it – which (I guess) isn’t saying much, I seem to enjoy every Brewery that I go to - probably because they are all so different.



Kelley’s is run by Patti Johnson, who is very friendly and very welcoming.

The brewery is totally laid back. It’s located on the south shore of the big US Lake Erie Island. Kelley’s Island is pretty much a bicycle only…

If You Like the SLY FOX...

Go to my favorite beer distributor PEACH STREET BEER 4 LESS and you can find it there. It comes in a case of 12-22oz bottles. While there check out all the other selections they have. Ask the Beer Guys for help in picking out your next favorite beer. Tell Joe & Mike that I sent you.

Out of town

I was so excited to join The Erie Beer Society, but I had to move because I was laid off 12 mouths ago. I will still keep looking for the e-mails. I moved to Ocala, Fl. Is there any way to have the beer shipped down here? I really miss the MICRO'S and CRAFT beers.By the way, when are the tee shirts going to be out, I would wear it with pride down here!! Keep up the fantastic job and I will plan a vacation for the Beer on the Bay.

Strawberry beer

Hello everyone! So many people are raving about the strawberry beer that was sampled at the Erie Micro Brew Fest on Saturday. Which brewery featured the beer? Lots of folks are asking if it's available locally.

MicroBrew Fest

Just returned home from this years beer fest----another great job putting together a wonderful event.All the beers were great! I don't remember any music @ last years so was very happy to listen to two groups(Tom Stine sounds like a group).The addition of the tent area with cigar aromas,tunes from Harbour Knights,spontaneous dancing/singing from the crowd was very,very fun.Hope this area remains "in the loop" for next year.Thanks to all who made this BrewFest another fun day!
