Tuesday, March 6th, please come to Summit Brewery beginning at 5:30. We’ll have socializing until 6:30, and the club is providing pizza. Summit’s amazing beers will be available for purchase, and please remember to tip ridiculously well! Homemade beverages are welcome.
At 6:30 we will have our 2018 business meeting, which includes a treasurer’s report and election of board members. The offices of president, vice-president, treasurer, and secretary are all open, as are two, two-year term at-large positions. Please let president John Longballa know of your interest in running for a position. The club LOVES having new faces and ideas on the board, and there are current board members who are ready to step aside.
At 7:00 we will have an off-flavor seminar, wherein we use a Siebel Institute Flavor kit to doctor some lighter Summit beer. Your pre-seminar study assignment is to familiarize yourself with the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) Beer Faults information–https://www.bjcp.org/faults.php
As per tradition, the camping event will take place the first weekend in August. The planning, Saturday supper, and site are to be coordinated this year by the Prairie Homebrewing Companions of Fargo-Moorhead, so the location of the event is to be determined. The cost is usually minimal, and is often around $25/person, camping and Saturday’s feast included; kids are free.
This is an amazing weekend, and is great for families and well-behaved pets. If you don’t care for drinking great beverages in the summer sunlight, or for sitting around a campfire while people sing and pass you amazing beer, then you should avoid this event at all costs.
