The LBG put on its annual Maifest event May 6 at the home of members Sean Belden and Sherry Warren. The day – known by the American Homebrewers Association as Big Brew – celebrates National Homebrew Day and takes place the first Saturday in May.
Several members donated and served beer at the LBG’s booth at the Parkville Microbrew Festival April 30 in English Landing Park in Parkville, Mo. The event featured 50+ breweries and several homebrew clubs.
The LBG-23rd Street Brewery collaboration beer will go on tap in May as part of American Craft Beer Week. This year’s collaboration is a rye saison. Members involved were Ellen Jensen, Leigh Keck, Courtney Servaes and Katy Wichman. They were assisted by LBG members and 23rd Street brewers Russell Brickell and Tucker Craig.
Twenty LBG members and guests toured Crane Brewing Co. in Raytown, Mo., on April 23. Several members also visited Stockyards Brewing Co. afterward.
