Our club picnic will be held on Saturday, August 8, at 1 P.M. There will be a change of venue, however. Bryan is no longer able to host so it will be held at John Parson's place instead. Please bring a dish to pass. We will also have our informal beer competition as we have the past couple of years. Directions will be sent out the week before.

Golden Growler 2016

E-mail Print PDF

The Bull Falls Homebrewing Club has determined the style for their 2016 INTER-CLUB competition. It is style 7A. Vienna Lager (BJCP 2008 guidelines). The way the contest works is this:

  • Clubs conduct their own private contest for CLUB MEMBERS ONLY using whatever criteria they wish to use.
  • The club chooses its top three entries and submits them to the Golden Growler contest (held in April, right about the same time as the TTO.)
  • No cost for entering this contest. It is essentially a club-only contest and the club with the most points from their three beers wins.
  • Rules for the 2015 contest can be found at http://www.bullfalls-homebrewers.org/GoldenGrowler/ggclubrules.html

I think this would be great for our club to get involved with. As an incentive for members to compete in this, every member who brews a Vienna Lager for the Golden Growler will be allowed to entire it FREE in the Titletown Open, IN ADDITION TO their regular free entry for club members.

Club Vienna Lager entries will be judged twice - once before the TTO to determine who goes to the Golden Growler and then a second time during the TTO. The CLUB will judge the entries at the April meeting to determine which ones advance to the Golden Growler.

Further details will announced later at a club business meeting but I wanted to give everyone the heads up so they can start making plans.

The club brew will be held at Paul Chambers' place on Saturday, May 2, starting at 1:00 P.M. Directions were sent out via the email list. If you did not get an email, email me at president at rackers.org. I think I have the mailing list ironed out, but I'm not 100% certain. Hope to see you there!

Rackers Newsflash

FROM: Shawn L.

Hey Rackers. A little heads up on the Style of the Month that we try to do for the business meetings.

For those of you who don't know what the Style of the Month is, its pretty simple. We have a few beer styles laid out for particular monthly meetings, that hopefully us members will brew and bring along to the corresponding meeting and talk about them. This is not a competition or anything. Just a way to broaden both our beer knowledge, but also our homebrewing knowledge as well.

Anyone is welcome to brew any of the styles. Use any technique, any style of brewing.
Are you a classic recipe brewer? Great! Got a new twist or new angle on that old beer? Awesome! Brew it. Maybe jot down a note or two and bring it to the meeting.

We have heard from a few members that they didn't know where to find the styles coming up or that they were not all that familiar with some of the styles.

Well luckily, we have a few very good options. We already have the styles posted for the next year or more on the http://rackers.org/ site. The Forum here is a great place to ask any questions about not only the "SotM" beers, but any beer, wine, cider topic you want.

Plus, if you haven't already liked us on the Green Bay Rackers Home Brew Club Facebook Page, then go check it out. We post reminders there as well. And will try to throw a little more info out there about upcoming styles and time frames

I would encourage us as members to use these sites as they really can help in sharing information, and to get any info or help you may need. And also, it helps just to keep in touch in between the meetings.

With that in mind, here is the 2015 Style of the Month brews

2015

APRIL - Maibock
JUNE - Belgian Blonde
AUGUST - Cider
OCTOBER - IPA
DECEMBER - Old Ale (might want to consider starting this one a few months ahead of time.)
