Upcoming Meetings


October Meeting: 2017 BBL Hop Project Meeting! Led by Rob W.

Ray is remodeling his bathroom in preparation for out-of-town guests visiting for his daughter’s wedding later this month (!). Mock/congratulate him accordingly in November–his daughter had the temerity to schedule her wedding for a meeting weekend.

At the October meeting, we’ll have at least two bags of grain and other assorted items to raffle off. There are also still Beer & Sweat shirts and hats available for purchase. They’re very soft & comfortable!

November Meeting: Ice Beers by Mike R.

December: Beermas!

Beer & Sweat 2017 Report

Beer & Sweat was a social success! We had a slightly higher attendance than last year, and The Board would like to enthusiastically  thank all of the volunteers, judges, stewards, participants, and members (new & old) for another wonderful year (and party). Unfortunately, we did not meet our financial goals for this year, but a great time was had by all and we even received glowing reviews from the Marriott staff (no, but really, we did).

“That’s the rich part of the family. They have the triple-wide.” -Steve

There is a Beginner’s Brewing Class at Listermann’s on November 30th (extract brewing). Registration is $20. Tell your friends (and then make them join BBL!)

There is an Advanced Brewing Class on December 7th (all-grain), also $20.

**Authoritative fist pound on the table.**



Meeting adjourned: When Ray said so. (~8:20 PM)
