“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!”
Despite there being no historical proof that this is an actual quote (except on a T-Shirt), I like the sentiment.
The Finger Lakes Fermentation League is a small group near the northern end of Lake Seneca (in the Finger Lakes region of New York). We started meeting in February 2015 because we were interested in beer and wanted to share and learn more about it! There are a number of us who homebrew and we often discuss the brewing art, though anyone who is interested in beer* is welcome to join us!
