Busy March for Basin Brewers

Hello Brewers! One our favorite months of the year is coming, and it is a busy one this year. We'll kick off the month with our Roundtable meeting on March 2nd, then MARCH MEAT MADNESS on March 23rd, and end the month with a Basin Brewers Road Trip to San Angelo's Craft Beer Experience on March 30th. We hope to see you guys there!

As is tradition, we will be judging our annual pale off during March Meat Madness. This competition is open to all (except commercial brewers obviously) and the style is American Pale Ale (18B)  If you plan to brew for this competition, get on it quick because it is fast approaching!

Calling all brewers, it's that time of year again, time for the Basin Brewers annual KEG CRAWL! On October 27th at 7pm, we'll rent a van and pay a designated driver to haul our asses all over Midland Odessa stopping by brewers' houses to sample their homebrew. Right now we are looking for crawl stops. If you are an active brewer and have beer ready to serve, please get in contact with us via basinbrewerstx@gmail.com or through the Facebook group. We need your help to make this a fun event, so if you've got beer ready to share, we are ready to drink!!

Update, 10/25/18:
Due to lack of participation we had to cancel this years Keg Crawl. It is a busy time of year and hard to get a good group of us together. We hope to see you at the next event!

AHA Big Brew 2018 Success!

The 2018 Basing Brewer's Big Brew was a blast! There were plenty of hiccups as there always is, but a fellow brewer was always close by to help. This is a great event every year and a perfect introduction to brewing for someone looking to get into the hobby. See you guys on the first Saturday in May, 2019! Huge thanks to James for hosting, and thank you for this awesome video of the day!

Hey Brewers, it's time once again to celebrate National Homebrew Day!

In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created AHA Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. AHA Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May.

Please join us on May 5th, 2018 for the Basin Brewers' Big Brew! Thank you to James Rhoades for volunteering his massive backyard for the event! If you can bring a canopy or chairs, please do so. We plan to start around 10am, and the toast is at noon as usual. We hope to see you all there!

This year's Big Brew recipe's were handpicked by Charlie Papazian himself:

  • Rocky Raccoon’s Honey Lager 
  • Dusty Mud Irish-style Stout

March Meat Madness was Great!

Thank you to everyone who came out to drink beer and consume mass quantities of meat with us! We also snuck in some grilled donuts and some crawfish. A big thank you to Jorge for the crawfish and the boiler and to Jaime for the venue. We look forward to seeing everyone at the April roundtable, cheers

Aaron had a tasty meat log

Hello Brewers, it's that time of the year again. Time for our annual tribute to meat and beer, March Meat Madness. We supply the heat, you bring the meat! Bring whatever homebrew or good commercial brews you'd like and spend the afternoon getting fat with the rest of us, haha!

We are having this event at the same location as last year, 1402 Cotton Flat Rd, Midland, TX from 5pm until 9pm on March 24th. We are sorry to say that due to time constraints there will not be a Pale Off this year. Come on by, bring a friend or two, bring some meat and beer, and lets celebrate!
