Upcoming Meetings


July 2018: Brewing Software Mark Brzezinski

**We are likely to have a BeerSmith discount code at this meeting for BeerSmith 3.0**

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

3 Points Urban Brewery Visit

For those who were not able to join us for the July Bored meeting, take time to head down to 3 Points Urban Brewery in the near future. Thanks to 3P for the behind-the-scenes tour and taking time to sit down with us and discuss their beers!

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.


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!

Beer & Propane

Stay tuned for news. Stein beer?

Bloatarian Shirt Order

Club shirts are a possibility.

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, which is rapidly approaching! After the July membership, you will need to pay the $25/person membership fee, rather than the $30/family amount.


Possible Topics for 2018 Meetings

  • All Things Yeast
  • Yeast Experiment
  • Mashing Chemistry
  • Decoctions
  • Brew-in-a-Bag Techniques
  • Safety (5-10 minute topics before formal topic for all meeting)
  • Beer Swap Night
  • Blending Night (TRASH Guest)
  • Factors that Affect Efficiency
  • Chime in with additional suggestions!

Beer & Sweaters

Probably not happening this year. Stay tuned for when it gets cold again. Also, looking for volunteers to coordinate. If you volunteer, you get to pick the date!

Meeting adjourned at 8:15 PM.

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.
