This is an important month for the Tucson Homebrew Club. We're electing new officers! You have to be a paid member to vote and to run. We are still taking dues for the year. If you were not at the last meeting but feel like running for a officer position, don't fret. We'll take some last minute nominations. If no one else is nominated, since there are only 5 positions and 5 people running, those 5 will automatically become elected.
Our current officers:
Brice Helms - President
Matt Covingtion - Treasurer
Shawn Cochran - Minister of Education
Shawn Halstead - Events Coordinator
Freddie Sanchez - Web guy.
Officers up for election:
Continuing from last month's topic on Water Chemistery, Shawn will demonstrate using a water spreadsheet calculator to come up with your own water profile from scratch. Specifically, Bru'n Water.
Irish Style Beers in preparation for St. Patty's day.
Where: Rillito Park Racetrack.
When: April 20th, 2013
They are looking for volunteers, please sign up HERE if you can volunteer your time.
Our next meeting will take place at Dragoon Brewing Co. on October 2nd at 7pm. Here's a link to a map of their location (1859 W Grant Rd #111 Tucson, AZ 85745).
Aging beers and Oxygenation
Oktoberfest! It's that time of year again. The heat is dissipating, and it's time to bring out some of that malty beer you've been saving. This is one of the classic malty styles. So come ready to learn about a great style!
Club Only Competition
November/December 2012: Ant Hayes Memorial Burton (Old) Ale Please bring any entries you have for this to the November meeting.
As always we take entries for the Top Brewer program. Bring whatever type of beer you'd like judged by BJCP judges (Freddie, Matt, Brice) and others who would like to learn.
Rob, president of ASH, gave me some interesting news. Diageo, owner of Guinness, is donating 1,400 CASES of Guinness Black Lager for ASH's Oktoberfest! As members of the Tucson Homebrew Club, ASH has granted us de facto membership -- meaning we're invited to Oktoberfest. So, if you are planning on going up there October 6, 2012 from 12pm to 6pm, and bring back as many cases of black lager that you can carry.
