August - August Exchange: Brevity is the Soul of Wheat
My liege, and madam, to expostulate
What brewing should be, what beer is,
What hop is hop, grain grain, and yeast is yeast,
Were nothing but to waste hop, grain, and yeast;
Therefore, since BREVITY IS THE SOUL OF WIT,
And tediousness the brew day and outward flourishes,
I will be brief. Your Beer Exchange theme is WHEAT …

For the next Beer Exchange, brew a BJCP style featuring wheat in the grain bill. Bring your Weissbiers, your Witbiers, your American Wheat Beers, your Hefeweizens...maybe even a Berliner Weisse?

September - September Exchange - Australian and New Zealand Hops
Kia ora and G’day mates! This month we’re heading to the land down under with our hop schedules. Ferment a frothy with heaps of Aussie and/or Kiwi hops and bring it on over to the piss up at Keystone Homebrew Supply. And No Wucka’s if your grog isn’t true blue; all coldies are welcome. At the end of the day, we’re all here to blow the froth off a few. Hooroo!

Translation:
Hello and hello again. This month’s beer exchange theme is Australian and New Zealand hops. Brew a beer that features any variety and bring it on over to the socially distant get together at Keystone Homebrew. And there is no problem if you don’t want to brew to the theme; all beers are welcome. At the end of the day, we’re all here to drink great beer. Goodbye!

Keystone also offers an ace selection of Australian and New Zealand hops: Summer, Ella, Galaxy, Southern Cross, Motueka, Nelson Suavin, Pacific Gem, Pacific Jade, Waimea, and Wakatu. It’ll be no hard yakka to put a little Straya in your September stubby!
