May Board Meeting Minutes

Meeting Start: Drinking started at 7:10 PM. Recording started vaguely soon after that. Ray was late. Nope, Ray was absent.

In Attendance: Maybe enough for a quorum? Not sure how to tell…

Evil Iron Brewer + Bloat Open

These competitions are roaring down on us like a freight train: May 20, 2017 @ The Eddy. Judges who judges categories in both competitions get points for both!

Bloat Open

Registration of entries close at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, May 10th. Drop-off is Wednesday, May 17th by 4:00PM at Listermann’s shop.

Evil Iron

Digital versions of your labels are due to Roxanne via email on Wednesday, May 10th. Labelled bottles are due at Listermann’s shop by 4:00 PM on Wednesday, May 17th. If you drop off your bottles in a box (or ship a box), please write “Attn: Evil” somewhere on the outside of the box. Do not include the words “Iron Brewer” if you’re shipping through the mail. 

AHA National Homebrew Competition

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

Good Deal: How to Brew: Everything You Need to Know to Brew Great Beer Every Time by John Palmer

Through May 7th, AHA members can pick up the revised edition of How to Brew: Everything You Need to Know to Brew Great Beer for 40% off at this link.

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! So far we’ve heard from one person…the sooner you let us know, the sooner we can put you in touch about carpooling.

Big Brew for National Homebrew Day, Saturday May 6th

Brew day at Rivertown in Monroe (not Lockland, as previously stated). 9:00 AM start time. There will be pop-up tents and lots of space. Use the link above to access the site where you can RSVP and find more detailed information.


Upcoming Meetings

May Meeting: Bloat Open & Evil Iron Brewer on Saturday, May 20th will take the place of the usual third Friday meeting.

June Meeting: Recipe design for Bocks so you can brew in September in preparation for Bockfest 2018. Mark Brzezinski, you’ve been volun-told. Speak now or forever hold your peace. 

July Meeting: TBD

Club Gear & Clothing Order

Information coming in the next few months from Jerry. Watch for that if you’re interested in obtaining some BBL swag.

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. (The deer is a reference to the plethora of deer friends in the neighborhood.)

Things to bring: chairs are good, beers, sides, apps, desserts to share. Starts at 2:00PM, food at 5:00PM, ends eventually. Children are welcome but you must take at least as many home as you brought with you. Fried turkey, beef brisket, and grilled polenta for the vegetarians provided. Directions will be sent out via the Google Group and the Facebook Forum.

Meeting adjourned around 8:10 PM. It’s amazing how much more quickly things go when Ray isn’t here to complain.

Have you recently toured a brewery, been to a new favorite beer bar, or have some other beer related news you’d like to share with the club? Let us know and we’ll include it in the newsletter.
