August Meeting

We don’t usually have an August business meeting, but because we have moved the club picnic to September 16th, we decided to sneak one in.

Saturday 1pm at the House of Homebrew

See you there.

June Meeting Reminder

Our June 3rd meeting will be at 1 p.m. upstairs at The Titletown Brewing Depot.

The ingredient of the month is honey, so bring your honeyed brews and meads to share.

Sorry Everyone!

It would appear that I have jumped the gun on reporting that the score sheets are all up and ready for everyone. When the Contest Coordinator is finished with all of the them, and there were a lot, I will put the directions and links back up here.

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Congratulations Rackers!

We took home the Roar Off The Shore Peoples Choice Award!

Thanks to all who participated and kudos to the Kewaunee and Dyckesville Lions Club Roar Off The Shore planning committee for organizing another successful brewfest. We found out that next years event will be Saturday, March 24th 2018.

Here’s a note from the prez.

Hey all,

Just a reminder of our upcoming April Meeting

 

This Saturday, April 1

Remember to bring your Bull Falls Double IPA submissions as we will be choosing our top 3 to send down to the Finals!

 

Have a Titletown Open entry that you have a question about? bring it down.

 

Plus the monthly category was originally chocolate, so if you have any beers or wines or anything you you made with nibs, powder. Ect… bring them along for some feedback.

 

See you there..

Roar Off The Shore 2017

Green Bay Rackers voted Best Homebrew by Roar Off The Shore attendees!

Had a great time at the Roar again this year. There was a big turn out, sounds like almost 1,000 people attended this year.

Theresa brought a tasty peach apricot chardonnay. Fred brought his awesome IPA. Dan brought a wonderful london porter. Damian brought a delicious schwarzbier.

Hope those that didn’t attend this year can make it to the next one.
