2013 Homebrew Seminar, Party, Competition Updates

By Steve Siciliano

We are very pleased to announce that Stan Hieronymus, author of For the Love of Hops, Brew Like a Monk and Brewing With Wheat, will be the keynote speaker at the 2013 Siciliano’s Homebrew Seminar scheduled for Friday, May 10, at the enclosed pavilion at Johnson Park.

Stan will be arriving in Grand Rapids on Thursday, May 9, in order to have time to visit a few of our “Beer City, USA” breweries. In addition to giving a presentation on hops at the Friday seminars, Stan will also be holding a book signing at Siciliano’s on Friday afternoon and will be attending the Saturday party.

Other highlights of the 2013 seminars will be a Belgian beer tasting and a presentation by Walter Catton, formerly of New Holland Brewing, on distilling.

In other news, this year’s winner of Best of Show will have the opportunity to brew his/her winning recipe at Perrin Brewing Company and will receive a gift certificate in the amount of $500.00 from Siciliano’s Market. Just a reminder, this year’s competition will be capped at 250 entries. Refer to this Buzz post—Siciliano's 10th Annual Homebrew Contest: It Begins!—for more information on the competition and party.
