London Amateur Brewers – Georgijs Voshington Porter
“It’s important to have people who critique your beer in an honest way. The first rule at London Amateur Brewers (LAB) was: don’t say anything nice. Be slightly harder than you would be normally, so we can dig out what’s happening. How do we fix it, make it better? That’s how you improve.”
This is a principle LAB has lived by from its first meeting in October 2007 to the present day. More than simply a drinking club, members discuss a range of topics relevant to beer and brewing. This has developed into talks, presentations, practical demonstrations, guest speakers, as well as technical Q&A sessions and beer tastings that form the the basis of their monthly meetings.
The club’s most decorated member, Phill Turner, first entered this beer in the Brew Brighton competition in 2016, which was an American themed competition. It won best of show as an American Porter. Georgijs is the Baltic version of George and it’s rumoured that George Washington loved this style, hence the name.
Every effort is made to match the brewery recipe precisely, but at times it maybe necessary to change some of the listed ingredients on the recipe to alternatives due to seasonality or availability, but in all cases we do our best replace with something that won’t impact on the overall taste and flavour of the beer.
