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.
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.
The results are in!
Duck Creek Winery for hosting the event.
Thanks to the judges as well, we couldn’t have done it without them.
