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.
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.
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.
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.
