Bitter & Esters
700 Washington Ave., Brooklyn, NY11238
Calling all BJCP judges, Cicerones, Home Brewers and beer lovers! On Friday August 12th at 6pm, Bitter & Esters will be hosting acclaimed author Gordon Strong. Gordon will be signing copies of his most recent book, Modern Homebrew Recipes: Exploring Styles and Contemporary Techniques and talking to brewers about styles and judging. Gordon Strong is a three-time winner of the National Homebrew Competition Ninkasi Award, president and highest ranking judge in the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP Grandmaster V) and lastly, the technical editor for Zymurgy magazine. We’re pretty sure he knows a thing or two about beer.
No matter where you are on the homebrewing spectrum, Gordon’s books are solid resources. His previous book, Brewing Better Beer offers great advice on how to evaluate a recipe and pitfalls to avoid. For the more advanced brewer or those looking to pass the Cicerone or BJCP exams, Modern Homebrew Recipes has a good guide to sensory evaluation.
Just like our previous author events with John Palmer, Charlie Papazian, and Michael Tonsmeire, this free event is not to be missed. Word has it that Gordon might even try your homebrew, so bring your best. It’s not every day that a Grandmaster V BJCP judge comes to town.
