Freakin' Busy!!!

Sorry I have not posted anything for a while. It has just been crazy around here. We did have a couple of guests over for the brew session 1 1/2 weeks ago. We made a Rauchbier for the IBU. They had 55 lbs. of Rauch malt that needed to get used up so we made a big batch for the club. I think we are going to make an American Wheat in the next 2 weeks. We are the brewers of the month in April (I think) and that is the style of the month. I will keep you all posted. If you are a new visitor to our Blog, please check out our archives. There is a ton of cool stuff in there. Chat with you all again soon!

Freak Out!!

IBU Open is This Weekend!!!

It has been quite a while since the Iowa State Fair and I am sure most of the brewers around Iowa and the Midwest are pumped up about this event. As you can see, all of The Freak Brother's beers are ready to go and we are looking forward to it. I look forward to seeing you all this Saturday too.

The Freak Brothers have 7 beers in the game. We have made some adjustments to our operation over the winter but, I think we will do well. Good luck to the rest of you too!

IBU Open Entries

1. Brown Porter (2008 Iowa State Fair "Best of Show" Beer)
