BBL February Meeting: Q&A with “Ohio Breweries” author Rick Armon
February 17, 2012 — 7-11pm at Norwood Community Center
Author Rick Armon will visit and speak with us about his adventures and give insight into his tours of Ohio’s 49 breweries and brewpubs at the February Club Meeting. In his book, Armon offers information on tours, takeout, food, types of beer brewed at each site and the author’s pick of the best beer to try for each brewery. The book also features details on Ohio’s beer festivals, Winking Lizard’s World Beer Tour, and the Ohio Craft Brewers Association.
Books will be available for purchase at the meeting. Rick is coming to us from Akron and also offering this presentation for free. As a Bloatarian Thank You we think it would be very kind if members/attendees would bring one bottle of their best homebrew (labeled with style, brewers name, etc) to the meeting to send home with Rick.
