February 2017 meeting notes

Thanks to all who attended our February meeting and a special thanks to Kevin and Bailie for sharing their home with us! We enjoyed an unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon considering it’s the middle of February! Our meeting was attended by 37 members, 3 guests and four wee brewers, Luman, River, Parker and Lila! Kevin presented the Brett Beer category and we heard Robyn Smyth describe her plans to develop a “Business of Brewing” short course at VT.

Our next meeting will be held Saturday March 18th from 4-7PM at James and Joan’s home. This meeting will include our American Porter competition. If you are submitting a competition entry, please have it at the meeting by 2:45PM as judging will begin promptly at 3PM.
