logo May 2021 Social Event - Enjoying local beers!
Presented by Dr. Michael Weaver
Wednesday, May 19, starting at 6:45 PM via Zoom

Get your favorite mug ready and join us for a sampling of different beers from several of Cincinnati’s more than 50 breweries on Wednesday, May 19, at 6:45 PM. The Cincinnati Enquirer runs an annual bracket of local favorites.

Dr. Michael Weaver will guide attendees through the differences in styles, ingredients, and brewing processes of local brews as well as the resulting differences in aroma, flavor, and appearance. Dr. Weaver is a retired P&G chemist, homebrewer, and has previously qualified as a judge in the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP).

During this meeting we will be tasting and enjoying some of the more popular ales made by local Greater Cincinnati Breweries. We in the Cincinnati area are fortunate to have a great variety of tasty, locally brewed beers. However, that poses a problem for us – which beer to choose? Because of that challenge, we will limit ourselves to a few local Ale style beers, that you will need to purchase prior to the meeting.

Registration for the Zoom meeting is required. We will be tasting several of local Cincinnati Ale styles that you will need to purchase prior to the meeting, please review the instructions.

As a follow-up to our February meeting, we have scheduled hands-on demonstrations at Neusole Glassworks (11925 Kemper Springs Dr, Cincinnati; near I-275 and Winton Rd). Each date/time slot needs a minimum of 5 people and can accept a maximum of 10. There will be a 30-minute glassblowing demonstration, followed by individuals making paperweights or flowers. For these times, watching is free (but you still need a reservation); flowers cost $5 each; paperweights cost $20. Make reservations directly with Neusole Glassworks at 513-751-3292, identifying yourself as an ACS member and paying in advance. Invite your spouse, child, friend to explore the exciting chemistry of glass with you. Allow 2-3 hours for the activity. Also, you must return to pick up your item one week later after it has been properly annealed.
