August was quite a busy meeting for the Carboys. Besides our normal sampling (and there were some excellent beers passed around!) we not only had club business but there was a surprise raffle!
On the business side we have several upcoming events:
- Brew-in for the fall picnic is on Sept 21st and Andrew’s. See the FB page for details.
- The fall picnic is November 2nd at Champions park. See the FB page for details.
- Our next club competition will be a Cereal based competition. Rules are forthcoming.
- We had 2 family and 2 individual new members – welcome all!
Additionally, the club aquired some Garisson Brother barrels from Twisted X that formerly had Senior Viejo in them. One was drawn at random and given to a carboy brewer who brought beer and that winner was Mike Chandler! Congrats Mike! There are some other barrels in the club and those brewers will be putting together their own barrel projects so watch the FB page.
