February Meeting Update

Hey Folks,

Just wanted to remind everyone about the Delmarva United Homebrewers meeting and Throwdown that will be happening this coming Thursday, February 21st. The events will be taking place at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth. The Throwdown will start around 7:15pm in the upstairs dining room. As an added bonus, Jason Weissberg from the pub has invited our group to sample some brats/sausages. I've included that information at the bottom of this note. First, information about the Throwdown. The ThrowDown is a club competition where everyone at the meeting judges the entries and votes for their 3 favorites. The results are then scientifically tabulated and the winners announced and awarded prizes. We have gift certificates from Xtreme Brewing and 5-Star Products for the winning entries. How do you enter? Here are the simple rules:

IMPORTANT: Entry Fee: $5 (does not include $1 meeting donation)


1. One entry per household

2. Entries accepted starting at 6:45pm upstairs at Dogfish Head (20 entry maximum, 1st come, 1st entered)

(If you're late or never made it past the bar downstairs - see rule 4...entries stop at 7:15pm)

3. Bring AT LEAST four 12oz. bottles or two 22oz. bombers or one 1/2 gallon growler. Any labels will obliterated.

4. No complaining. No recounts. No alliances. Contest officials accept bribes but they'll do you no good.

In addition to the prize packages for the winning brewers, we will be doing door prizes for everyone in attendance. Xtreme Brewing, Henlopen City Oyster House, The Pickled Pig Pub and 5-Star Products have generously donated some additional goodies for us to giveaway during this event. When you offer your $1 meeting donation, you will be given a raffle ticket which cements your entry into the prize pool.

....And now this from Jason Weissberg at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats

The pub is looking to add some beer inspired sausages to our upcoming menu. We have six different varieties to taste and try before we make a decision on the best flavor combination. Who better to decide on the best tasting sausage but beer lovers and nobody loves beer more than DUH. I would like to invite you all to help us taste and decide which flavor combinations work best. Your feedback is really important. The tasting is of course free and will be happening on Thursday February 21, before your competition. The tasting will be set up and ready to go at 5:30PM until the competition begins. Thank you in advance for your help and look forward to seeing you all Thursday night.

Cheers and Thank you,


Hope to see everyone on Thursday!
