All-Club Camp-Out! Crazy-fun, family-friendly outdoor drinking for any homebrewer in ANY club. The first weekend in August is the 22nd(?) annual homebrew/camping extravaganza. MHBA is preparing the Saturday feast. We’ll be in a shady grove at El Rancho Manana, just past Saint Cloud, near Cold Spring. We have our own area WAY away from any other campers, and there is a casual homebrew contest, beer sharing around the fire, acoustic jamming, Kubb, horseback riding, swimming, a Sour Hour, and general unplanned mayhem. Call El Rancho and pay $25/adult for two nights; kids are free. Bring a tent or a small camping trailer. There is running water, but no electricity. ALL CLUBS WELCOME!! You may come for just a day, but then you’ll just be eating your heart out on the way home . . .

NO HOMEMADE BEVERAGES ALLOWED AT THIS EVENT, PLEASE!!
Unlike a formal club meeting, there is no agenda or purpose for a club social event, other than to get together with fellow fermented-beverage lovers. Come one, come all–arrive/depart when the spirit moves you.
All MHBA club members are encouraged to BRING A FRIEND who might want to Learn to Brew to this event. We will have 4-6 brewers using all different types of homebrew systems, and we will have a drawing for COMPLETE brewing setups! COME EARLY to buy a slice of Barley John’s famous Egg-Bake-Thingy ™.
AND… reserve your fresh-squeezed apple cider from a local orchard, and pick it up at this event for your Hard Ciders and Cyser recipes!
