As we told you earlier, the South Philly Food Co-op is holding a great event—Co-op Brew Day!— from noon till 5 p.m. on Dec. 1 for anyone interested in homebrewing (or simply interested in beer): Award-winning homebrewers Andy and Sean Arsenault will lead a workshop in which they demonstrate how to brew a Sugarplum Porter, the perfect beer to kick of your holiday season. Since the event is almost at capacity (seriously, if you're on the fence, don't sleep on this), we asked Andy Arsenault, a brewer at Downingtown's Victory (and, what do you know, a Co-op member, too) to fashion his Top 5 reasons to sign up for this great event where you'll learn about making great beer, support The Co-op, and, of course, learn about the benefits of membership. Take it away, Andy:
Sounds great to us. Hope to see you there! The event will take place at the Arsenaluts’ home at 732 Clymer St. Tickets are just $15 for members, $20 for non-members, and can be purchased at Eventbrite. And remember: Becoming a member is easy. Why not join right now and attend at the member rate?
