Home Brewers, Beer Lovers and Volunteers!


It's time again to start thinking of this year's Big John Ale Event.  We need all who are interested in submitting an entry for this year's Big John Ale to get going on perfecting your Ale.  Entries will  be accepted from both Active Members and AFD Retirees.  Entries will be judged at Dry Dock the first week of April (exact date will be communicated later).  The winning beer will be produced by Dry Dock's head Brewmaster - Tim and be crowned 2018 Big John Ale.

All entries must fall into one of the following categories - Pale Ale, Amber, IPA, Wheat, Brown or similar.  Sorry, no Sours, Lagers/Pilsners or Barrel aged.  

AFR brewers can get a 10% discount at Brew Hut January 1st - March 31st on all supplies.  Just show your AFR ID.  
Disclaimer- For large batch brewing purposes the Brewmaster may need to adjust ingredients to accomodate a seven barrel brewing system.
We will also need plenty of help with the event.  We will be meeting at noon on January 2nd at Dry Dock to go over the event and what it is going to look like. Again, we need plenty of help, so contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
