Upcoming Events for February

We have a busy week ahead of us.

Registration for The 2017 Titletown Open begins Feb. 1st so make sure to get your entries ready.

You do have some time yet, so there is no need to panic. It looks like the entry deadline is April 21st.

The February business meeting is at The Titletown depot upstairs this Saturday Feb. 4th at 1p.m.

Check your email later this week, the location could change if the room is booked. I will try to keep this updated.

The Ingredient of the month is Oats, so make sure to bring your homemade beverage in which oats of some form were used.

As always, our business meetings are open to the public, so feel free to stop by and sample or just have a chat.

And finally, the Fon du Lac Brewfest is this Saturday Feb. 4th,  5 – 9p.m.

Some of our club members will be there to serve up some delicious homebrews, and I believe some are going solely to attend and sample the various options. If you must travel, a designated driver or a night at the inn is highly recommended.

Holiday/Festivus Party 2017

Thanks to everyone that showed up to the party and helped out. A big thanks to the club officers for getting the party organized and set up for us.

Thanks to Ned Kelly’s for hosting the party. Looks great in there with all the renovations, I am eagerly awaiting the installation of the 100 tap system.

We had a lot of door prizes, a lot of food, and a lot of beer, wine, mead, and cider to sample.

Looked like everyone had a good time. We also got to see some members that don’t make it to the regular meetings or brews.

Hope we see more new faces next year.

Thanks to Matt W. for taking some pictures and sending them along.
