Welcome John La Polla of Bitter & Esters as the new guest-host of Fuhmentaboudit! He's here with a cavalcade of brewers and beer professionals in anticipation of The NY Pro-Am Brew P.I.T. (Philosophy. Inspiration. Technique.). The P.I.T. is a celebration of the local beer brewing community both professional and amateur. A one-of-a-kind event featuring local brewers and the beers they inspire. Participating home brewers (chosen via lottery from online submissions) will meet with professional local craft brewers, get a tour of their brewery, share some beer, and talk shop. The home brewer will brew a beer inspired by that meeting and serve it alongside a beer of the professional brewer's choice at Covenhoven located at 730 Classon Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. On August 9th, there will be 2 tasting sessions. Session 1: 1-3pm, Session 2: 3:30-5:30pm. Learn more here. . This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.
"When I started brewing in NY there were only 2 home brew clubs, now thanks to people like Bitter & Esters there are roughly 10-12 homebrew clubs. "Brewnity" is the umbrella and excuse to get everybody together to do events that can benefit local charities." [29:00]
