June 2016 Newsletter!
Meeting next week on Wednesday June 15th from 7-9 at J&M! It's the quarterly style competition, witbier. In addition to this is the club label competition. Bring your labels! They will be displayed at the county fair - even the avery 5160s that say BEER. Speaking of which, guess what still isn't over - the county fair. Fortunately what we have left is just the setup of the homebrew section. There will be shelves with brews, potentially a table with equipment, essentially anything that we want to put in this little corner. Volunteers / Ideas are encouraged. Fair setup is June 25-26th.
- Quarterly style competition - Belgian Wit. Please drop off 2 12oz bottles at J&M by 5PM on Sat June 11. If you can't make that drop-off please let me know and we can work something out. I'd rather you emailed me than not submit your entry. Don't forget to bring a sample to the meeting. If you did anything unique or different please label as such. For example you did a cilantro lime wit. We will definitely need to know that when judging. Also, please provide some carnitas or chicken tacos to go with that one.
- The Northern California Homebrew festival is in September but sign-up is in July. The club can sponsor a tent if there is enough club interest. More details at Northern California Homebrewers Festival. Please let me or Jim know if you're interested.
- July meeting will likely be offsite, potentially at Iron Springs. If anyone else has another suggestion that works too. There will be a new quarterly style that day too. The club has historically done a summer family BBQ at Marinwood Park and could do it again this year if so desired. The park has a convenient field, bbq areas and a nice play area. The last couple times we rented a spot but that isn't a must do.
- Label Competition - Bring your labels to the meeting for an internal club competition. Most / All labels will likely be displayed at the fair. I don't think they have restrictions assuming it's not horribly offensive. Either way, bring it to share!
See you in Wednesday!
