Happy New Year, Yeastsiders! Our first meeting of 2013 will be held this Saturday, January 5th, at Eagle Rock Home Brewing Supply, from 2PM to 6PM. On top of that, it is expected be a beautiful, sunny day to share our homebrew with each other!
Un-Session Beers will be the beer style of the month as well as the Club Only Competition category (so be sure to fill out your entry forms!). Notably, this style covers almost every BJCP category where OG is above 1.040 OG. Of course, feel free to bring any type of homebrew to share and discuss. Please bring a copy of your recipe to assist in obtaining helpful feedback. Commercial beers are welcome at this homebrew shop location, and snacks are highly encouraged as well.
We are in the process of updating the website for 2013, including meeting locations and event calendar. Some updates have already been made and more are to be posted in the coming weeks. Upcoming competitions include the Doug King Memorial (entries due Jan. 10) and the Bruery Batch 1000 (entries due Feb. 1). We encourage your participation as its an excellent way to get quality feedback on your homebrewing. The Doug King Best of Show will be brewed at Eagle Rock Brewing Company as their 2013 GABF collaboration beer.
Please, bring a tasting glass to the meeting if you have one. If you do not yet own one, official Yeastside Brewers tasting glasses will be for sale, $8 each, cash only, please. Alternatively, you may also purchase 3 glasses at a discount for $20. It is also a good idea to bring a chair to take a break from standing around!
Membership dues for 2013 will be due and collected by our Treasurer Danny Exum. We have big plans for these funds this year!
February’s meeting will be held at Scott Piotrowski’s house for a brew day, and March’s location is to be determined. A 2nd Anniversary Party is also in the works, so stay tuned!
We hope you all had a wonderful and fun holiday season! We’ll see you Saturday!
