Just a reminder that this coming Saturday is the big Saint Patty Day shindig at Mark and Chris Robertson’s place. The details are on the web-site’s calendar and we will also be judging a sh—t load of great STOUT beers in the Homebrew Club’s STOUT homebrew competition. I think there will be nearly 50 gallons of various stouts to sample and vote on (People’s choice to determine the winner). So get you green on and don’t plan on drinking a bunch of transparent beers! Also, a reminder, this is an “adults only” party (21 years old or older).

Just roll down the windows when you get close and listen for the Bagpipe Band and the smell of Corned Beef!

Thursday Night Brewers Group
Membership is open to all club members. The only requirement is that you bring a sample of an adult beverage that you made. Beginning April 11th meetings will be held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 4PM. Only those who sign up will get announcements concerning the group. This will be the last reminder about this group. You may join any time in the future.

We have pushed the Wine-making demo back a week. The demo will now take place on Saturday March the 6th at 10:00am. I had a bunch of folks that wanted to brew beer the 27th and so we’ll be brewing beer on the 27th at my shop and doing the wine demo on the 6th of March. Call me with any questions or just ask at the meeting on Sunday.
