Sunday, February 5th - Join us for our monthly membership meeting. All are welcome!
The meeting starts at 11:00 am, with introductions and general business. The Grand Hydro - Drew - will present the style of the month (TBD) and provide liquid examples. Remember to bring your own tasting glass and your homebrew to share and for review by your peers.
Then we'll move on to our lunch - our Annual Chili Cook-off! Want to show off your chili kung fu to the club? Just make one crockpot full of delicious chili (4 quarts or larger so there's enough to go around for your fellow judges) and bring it to the meeting. There will be extension cords for you to plug into and keep your chili warm. Feel free to bring any accoutrement to serve with your chili as well as a serving utensil. Prizes to be awarded to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners and will be announced at the meeting! If you bring chili, your lunch is free! Want to compete? Sign up by emailing Burgerfrau Jenna at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or letting us know in the comments below.
This meeting also marks the triumphant return of our alternate informal homebrew sharing format. Instead of brewers formally presenting their beers one at a time, we'll open up the second half of the meeting to free range sharing and socializing. If you were at last July's meeting, you have some idea what to expect. Since there will be much roaming, if you bring beer, please consider labeling your bottles with the beer name/style/brewer so folks know what they're putting in their glass (bonus karma for printing out recipe sheets for reference).
There's a rumor that something called a "Superbowl" is happening the same day, but worry not. We should be done in plenty of time for people to get where they need to be for kickoff.
"Troubleshooters Corner" will be available for those with specific issues or who are too shy to present to the whole group. Welcome to those who want to check out the club and welcome back to all of our old friends.
Club meeting will be held, as usual, at the Home Beer Wine Cheesemaking Shop in Woodland Hills, CA - Come as you are!
