December meeting

    Just to remind everyone, the December meeting of the Delmarva United
Homebrewers will be taking place this coming Thursday, December 13th. We'll
be meeting in the upstairs dining room at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth, with
things getting started around 7pm.

    Topics for discussion are the upcoming homebrewers conference in June,
which is taking place in Philadelphia this year. We will also be discussing
an upcoming club competition, which will take place at the February meeting.
It's inexpensive pizza night at the pub, so come on in for dinner. As
always, feel free to bring samples of your latest fermented creations -
although that is not necessary to attend. The only thing that is necessary
is $1 per person attending.

Hope to see everyone there on Thursday, and Happy Holidays to everyone and
their families!

The date is this Thursday, August 9th. Directions are at the bottom of the note. Things will get started around 6pm. Feel free to bring a dish to share, as well as any fermented creations you want to share - but it is not required for attending. Hope to see everyone there....Cheers, Dead Terry

"(from Matt)....Here are directions to our house:

4 Dartmouth Dr

Lewes, DE 19958

From Rt 1 heading towards Rehoboth, turn right at the Wawa in Lewes and go straight back. At the stop sign entering Rolling Meadows, our house is ahead and to the right. Turn right and park in the pool/clubhouse parking lot once the driveway is full.

We're making pulled pork, mac n cheese, chips and salsa, and probably a few other things"

enjoying new fermented creations, good conversations on beer or "whatever"

and great people. Not a member of DUH? It's OK, come on over and join in.

You're welcome to bring anything you'd like to share - beer, wine, mead or

anything in between or something for the food table - but bringing something

isn't required. Pool is open and bocce balls are ready to go (ok, no, the

bocce balls are not in the pool...).

June marks the start of our summer meeting sessions. For those new to the club, we meet at member's houses during June, July, August & September due to the fact that Dogfish Head and Rehoboth Beach are jammed - not to mention those pesky parking meters......

The June meeting will be at Lori & Jimmy's home in Felton, Delaware. Things will get started around 6pm. Feel free to bring a dish to share, as well as samples of your latest fermented creations - although neither is required for attending. The summer meetings are more like monthly picnics/BBq's, so come on out and enjoy the evening.

Here are directions from the intersection of Rt. 13 and Rt. 12:

Head WEST on Rt. 12, cross the railroad tracks and turn RIGHT onto WALNUT ST.....Go to the first street on the LEFT, which is HIGH St.....Turn LEFT, then take first RIGHT onto GREEN Ct. Their house is the first house on the left side.

Here are the details for the Thursday, May 10th meeting of the Delmarva United Homebrewers. We are holding the 'DUH Throwdown' at this meeting. What the hell is that? It will be a simple beer judging competition, with a MAXIMUM of 15 entries. Everyone present for the meeting will be a judge, and will vote for the 3 beers they enjoyed the most. After all the ciphering and tallying is done, the beers with the most votes win. As always, there is fine print and details......


1. You must pay your meeting dues before you can enter.

2. One entry per brewing team (or household in most cases)

3. You must be present to enter. No third-party entries will be accepted.

4. Entries will be accepted in the upstairs dining room at Dogfish Head from 6:45pm - 7:15pm.*

* If there is an over-abundance of people with entries, we will institute a lottery system to determine who gets to enter their beer.

5. Bring at least FOUR 12oz. bottles or TWO 22oz./750ml bombers, or ONE growler. Remove any labels and black out caps, or any identifying marks.

6. If your entry needs to be served cold - bring it cold. Also, bring a very brief description of style or special ingredients or processes used.

Now, onto specifics of the evening......The crew from Brewing TV will be joining us for this meeting and have provided us with some awesome prizes to reward the winning brewers, as well as everyone who comes to the meeting. What are they? Well, to start, Dogfish Head and Brewing TV/Northern Brewer are putting out a spread of food for everyone to enjoy. Along with that, we have a pile of door-prizes to give away courtesy of Northern Brewer. The winning brewers will receive gift certificates from Northern Brewer:

1st place: $100 gift certificate

2nd place: $75 gift certificate

3rd place: $50 gift certificate

Here is how the evening is going to run.....

6:45 - doors open to the upstairs dining room. At the top of the stairs, Jess and Lori will gladly accept your meeting dues ($1, as always), and give you your door-prize ticket, as well as your voting ballot. DO NOT LOSE IT, because you only get one. If you have a beer to enter in the competition, you will then proceed to the registration table. Jim and Terry will confirm that you have paid by taking a peek at your door-prize ticket, and then will register your beer for the competition.

7:15 - Competition registration ends!

7:30 - Judging begins

8:30 - Judging ends. All ballots must be turned in by 8:30!

9:00 - Results will be announced, and prizes awarded.

Throughout all of this, we will hold door-prize drawings and the buffet of food and brewfett of beer will be available. Just like a normal meeting, feel free to bring samples of your latest fermented creations to share. We will have a table set-up for any beers that are not in the competition - our usual Brewfett.

So, that's the skinny on how this is going to go down at the throwdown. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday Night! If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note and I'll do my best to get an answer.

Just wanted to remind everyone about the BIG BREW DAY celebration happening this Saturday, May 5th. Brewing will start around 11am, we'll have some snacks and munchies - followed by a smoked-pork fiesta when brewing is done (around 4pm). If you are interested in brewing for the event, let me know or just show up at 11am. If you can't make it for the brewing-fest, come on by whenever you can - we'll be celebrating into the evening.

Feel free to bring a dish to share and any beverages (fermented or otherwise) that you want folks to sample. We have 2 beers on-tap and a keg of cider that I fear is on the verge of kicking - but we have some bottles to share as well as margaritas for Cinco de Mayo. Someone else can bring the Mint Juleps for the Kentucky Derby.
If you have any questions, need the address or directions, don't hesitate to contact us at . Hope to see everyone this Saturday!

April Brew Club Meeting

    Just to remind everyone, the April meeting of the Delmarva United

Homebrewers is this coming Thursday, April 12th. We will be meeting in the

upstairs dining room of Dogfish Head in Rehoboth Beach. Things will get

rolling around 7pm.

    Bring your latest fermented creations for folks to sample - but it's not

required to attend. The only thing we ask for is a $1 donation per person.

Topics for discussion will be the upcoming May 5th American Homebrewers

Association's BIG BREW DAY at Jester Acres, and hopefully some details on

our May 10th meeting - which a crew from Brewing TV will be attending.

It is still Pizza Night at Dogfish, come on in for dinner - yes, we have a

server upstairs - and stay for the meeting and the fun. Speaking of

meetings, the summer schedule is 'almost' completely set. For those new to

the club, since Rehoboth Beach has these evil devices called 'Parking

Meters' in effect during the summer months, and Dogfish Head is typically

completely crowded with visitors - we hold the June, July, August &

September meetings at different member's houses. The schedule for this year

(as of now):

June: Lori Brown & Jim Kroon's in fabulous Felton

July: Patti & Doug Griffith's in marvelous Millsboro

August: Krissy Shaw & Matt Patton's in lovely Lewes

September: tba (who wants it?)

That's it for now. Hope to see everyone on Thursday!
