Beer & Propane: Friday, 9/21 – Sunday, 9/23

Beer & Propane 2018 is moving to a new location in West Harrison (Camp Listermann).

Friday Night:
  • Barley wine verticals, the pizza oven may be lit…  Lots of fun.
  • Group brew out in the morning/afternoon (bring your equipment if you want to brew.
  • Also – we’ll be doing a steinbier (hot rocks!).  Time TBD, but during the day.
  • Group pot-luck followed by the secret ceremony after dark.
  • Clean up & head home.
Come for a few hours, or bring stuff to camp out & come for the weekend. Watch for an email with location and other details early next week!
Please note – this event conflicts with the regular monthly meeting.  SO – we will not have a regular meeting in September.  But, with the new campout location, it’s much closer and easier to come for a few hours on Friday and/or Saturday – even if you aren’t camping out.  Great time and a chance to learn about an old, historical style and method of making beer!

Thank-You Party for Mike Schwartz

If you have ever attended Beer & Propane at the Schwartz property, you are invited to a special event at Ollie’s in Dayton! Date is forthcoming, looking at sometime in October.

Mentorship Program

We have had three sign-ups so far and one pair that has been matched up! Potential mentors talk to Wayne, potential mentees, ask at the Listermann’s counter about how to sign up!

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 – we expect to be hearing something very soon. 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’re open and have beer! Located in the former Imwalle Funeral home in St. Bernard, we will be visiting soon! To get directions, click on “Wiedemann” above!

Bloatarian Shirt Order

You may have seen the new club shirts at Beer & Sweat. Due to an enthusiastic response from those who didn’t get in under the wire on the first order, we’ll be putting in a second order within the next month or so. An email will be sent to the club list when the Paypal site is live for orders.
