Join us for BIG BREW DAY!

big brew dayJoin Chris and the Ankeny Area Brewers Club at 106 SW Cherry St in Ankeny this Saturday from 10am to at least 6pm to celebrate the American Homebrewers Association’s BIG BREW DAY.

There will be several homebrewers on site brewing through out the day that will be more than willing to talk about their process and share their own homebrew. We’d like to invite current, potentional and those that just enjoy homebrew to come and brew with us or just hang out with us. To help us try to be better prepared, please let us know if you’d like to attend, if brewing, and about how many people by joining our Facebook event and commenting the details (not mandatory to attend).

We’ll provide a port a john, hand washing station, a picnic table, a grill, water to run your wort chiller, and of course a great time! What’s not to loose on what looks like it should be a beautiful Saturday?

Brew Of The Week – Pale Ale (Almost 2 Hearted)


This Week’s Brew of the Week is a Pale Ale using 2-ROW, 60L, Carapils, and Victory with Centennial hops. All Grain version (Grain, Hops, yeast) – $17.98. Extract version (DME, LME, Grain, hops, and yeast) – $25.68.

Some of our customers requested that we leave the brews up for longer than 1 week, due to the fact they can not make it in within that week. So starting on this brew, we will do a recipe every 2 weeks instead of every week.

Brew of the Week!

What to brew this week? How about our own designed recipe of the week? It’s an American Amber Ale as an All-Grain $18.56 or Extract $26.99 for the grains/extracts, hops, and yeast. If you would even like to have it all ready when you come use our Beer Recipe Carry Out feature and let us know when you’ll be by to pick it up.
