October Minutes

October 8th @ Union

  • BaltiBrew has a table for the Guild Holiday Party on Saturday, December 2nd. We have a group committed but anyone who wants to help out is encouraged to join! More information to come but it tentatively looks to be held in Jessup.
  • A few members did a tour of the Baltimore Spirits Company and they said they'd love for the club to swing by for a tour/potentially host a meeting (blending your own whiskey bottle would be extra). We are looking at November or January.
  • There is interest in organizing another cider buy this year. More to come.
  • A few BaltiBrewers are competing in the Checkerspot Homebrew Extravaganza (supporting BARCS) on Wednesday, October 18th from 6-9PM. Tickets are $10 at the door. It would be great for the club to come out and support them.
  • Monument's Festival der Lagerbier is this Saturday and several BaltiBrewers are attending. Tickets are still available
  • Many thanks to Jon for coordinating a blind ingredient tasting/discussion. It was super fun/informative and a great test for the palate!

Pints for Paws

  • Thank you to Gerry and Emily for representing at Pints for Paws! It sounds like there were around 600 people at the event which means they once again raised a ton of money for the SPCA of Anne Arundel County. Woohoo!


  • Camp Mashout is back for 2023 and registration is now open! This is a 4-day outdoor celebration of the homebrewing hobby held, this year, in Cumberland, MD. This year the event will run from August 18th-21st. For a schedule of events or to get tickets visit
  • BaltiBrew members interested in attending can coordinate on campsite/transportation with Jon.

  • The BaltiBrew website could use a refresh. Anyone with design or web skills can reach out to the board to help.

Ed Topic

You can check out the original blog posts from 2018 here. If you’re planning to come on Friday please plan to arrive at the parking lot at 2 PM to meet the rest of the group.
