February Meeting – Triumph

Matt and Brandon of Triumph New Hope had the chance to show us around Triumph New Hope.  The second brewpub built of the three in total, we got a behind-the-scenes look at what makes this location different in terms of operations.  The brewhouse has a great view, but I would guess it gets really hot in there cranking out the 10 barrel batches in the summer sun!  Also they had some interesting stories about overcoming a limited glycol chilling unit, grain and supply elevator fun, and of course shuffling bags of grain!  And of course, there were some nice brews to sample:  a slightly smoked mild on hand pump, a german pilsner that was oh-so clean, and a tasty coffee stout!

A big thanks to Matt and Brandon!
