2022 Yappy Hour!

Hello, LAGERS!

We are pleased to announce that Yappy Hour 2022 will be happening on November 12th!

Start thinking of what recipes you want to brew; we will send out a signup sheet later this week and you won’t have a lot of time to decide. 

If you are new to the event, Yappy Hour is LAGER’s fall fundraiser for the Humane Society. It’s a dog friendly event that is designed to promote craft beer and raise awareness for the ABW, LAGERS, and the KY Humane Society. All donations from the event will be made to the Louisville Chapter of the Kentucky Humane Society.   Essentially, you brew some wort and take it to ABW, where we pitch the yeast. The resulting beer is served at a party at ABW on November 12th, and all donations are given to the Humane Society.

Here is what you need to know:

  • ABW will supply all basic ingredients at no cost to you (hops, malt, yeast).
  • Fresh wort must be brought over to ABW during their business hours. Yeast will be pitched on site and allowed to ferment in a climate-controlled room held at 72F.
  • Please label your fermentation vessel prior to drop-off. It is your responsibility to check on the beer and complete any additions and transfers.
  • ABW will carbonate the beers, but you must keg your own beer. If you do not have a keg, please let us know and we will work on acquiring one for you.
  • Recipes must be limited to 1.060 and up to 10 gallons.
  • Recipes should not include expensive fruits, syrups, difficult to source ingredients, excessive hop bills, etc. Anything in excess must be provided on your own dime.
  • The default yeast provided will be the house yeast (US-05 or WLP099), unless you specify otherwise when you submit your recipe.
  • You must be a LAGERS member to enter.
