April Board Meeting Minutes

Meeting Start: 7ish PM

In Attendance: Enough for a quorum

Dues for this year are now more past due than they were before. Pay up!

Evil Iron Brewer + Bloat Open

May 20, 2017 @ The Eddy. Judges who judges categories in both competitions get points for both! Entry deadlines are ~2 weeks before for the Bloat Open. For Evil Iron, you must declare the number of entries and the categories ~2 weeks before 5/20.

AHA National Homebrew Competition

Three people in the club qualified for Round 2: Roxanne, Scott Schrader & Pete Bender.

39th Annual AHA HomebrewCon

June 15-17 in Minneapolis. Registration is still open. Register soon as hotels near the event fill up quickly and information about discounted rates is provided after registration. There is a really good mix of talks this year.

This is relatively driveable for BBL, clocking in at approximately 11 hours. Frontier Airlines does fly from CVG to MSP and back for very cheap. Club night keg transporatation may be available from Bloats who are driving up.

Register! Go! If you have registered and are planning to go, let us know

Ray Quote of the Meeting: “If it says f****** “cherry” on it, I better get f****** cherry!” [Repeat several times to get the full effect, as if you were there.]

Listermann New England IPA Competition

Judging on April 20th–pay for your entry at Listermann’s. Entry is $5 if you buy your ingredients at Listermann’s, $15 if you buy elsewhere. Contact the store for more details.

National Homebrew Day, Saturday May 6th

Brew day at Rivertown in Lockland. You can get yeast pitches–hot water system may or may not still be in. Details to be confirmed soon.

Ray: “When you get married, not only do you start looking alike, you start having the same pains.”

Emma, just tuning back in: “I BETTER not start looking alike when I get married.”


Upcoming Meetings

April Meeting: Bryan E. to speak about fruit beers.

May Meeting: Bloat Open & Evil Iron Brewer

Beer & Deer at Roxanne at Rob’s House on May 27th

Mike R. will bring his alpine horn. House party for Bloat members to kick off the summer. You’re welcome to bring venison. Just show up. Fried turkey, beef briskets, beer. Directions will be posted closer to the event.

Ciders and mead were enjoyed by all. All who weren’t bitter about a lack of cherry flavor in cherry-labeled drinks.

Meeting adjourned 8:34 PM.
