We will be meeting this Thursday 6-19 at Ice Harbor Brewery. Tasting will begin at 7 PM back in the brew house with the formal meeting kicking off at 7:30.
Don’t forget to bring your Club Quarterly American Amber Ale to be judged by the group for a chance to win a $50 gift card to the homebrew shop.
We will also be discussing our involvement in BEERSTOCK 5060-5 (more info below), The Benton Franklin Fair Homebrew Competition, & enjoying a quick technical talk.
