Meeting Quotes

As I’m writing these minutes in absentia and late, I have no context for the following quotes. So a list format seemed as good as any.

“He’s gonna die!”

“You should have seen her back hair!”

“You like hot stuff?”

“Like cutting open a TonTon.”

“Cash is just as good as money!”

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 to be announced, will not conflict with Beermas.

Mentorship Program

We have had several 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 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.

Bloatarian Tap Handles

Member price is $40 (at-cost), non-member price is $50. Check in with Roxanne at meetings if you are interested. They’re beautiful!

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.

Treasurer’s Report

We have less than last time.
