July 2018: Brewing Software Mark Brzezinski

August 2018: Beer & Sweat 2018! Information included in a dedicated section on the next page of the monthly minutes.

Mentorship Program

This program is progressing toward becoming a reality. Wayne is working details with Chuck regarding potential benefits/perks for mentors.  An email will be coming out to those who have expressed interest in participating, and the discussion of exactly how the program will be structured can go from there.

We have a Google Calendar for the club, and those who are members can place events on the Bloatarian calendar. This should come in particularly handy as we implement the mentorship program.

Bloat Open 2018

It happened. It went well. Congratulations to all involved!

Beer & Deer 2018

A good time was had by all. Ray hasn’t slept in a week for thinking about the incredible bourbon barrel apple cider.

Rob: “We just put in French drains so we could be in the grass!”

Ray: “You got something against German drains?!”

Update on Esoteric Brewing

Esoteric Brewing Company is on track for a Spring 2019 opening in Walnut Hills. Stay tuned for GoFundMe-style investment options. If you are interested in investing at a higher level, please contact Brian. As plans come to fruition, a Bloats event will be planned and communicated to the club.

Update on Wiedemann

They have started brewing and expect to open sometime before the end of June 2018. Located in the former Imwalle Funeral home in St. Bernard, we will be visiting soon!

Treasurer’s Report

We have money, but club membership is down from previous years. If you haven’t paid your dues yet, please do so as soon as possible. As a reminder, if you want to renew before Beer & Sweat, you must join/renew by the July member meeting. After the July membership, you will need to pay the $25/person membership fee, rather than the $30/family amount.

Minister of Propaganda’s Report

Exciting changes coming soon to the website! Part of the plan includes incorporating more photos – please send me any good photos you have of club events from this year or years previous. Kindly make sure before sending to me that you have permission from anyone in the photo for their image to be used on the Bloatarian website. Thanks!
