November Minutes + Holiday Party Tickets (Broken Attachment)
Guild Holiday Party Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9a.m. DO NOT sleep on buying them, as this ALWAYS sells out fast. More details about the charities involved can be found on the guild site linked in the last sentence. We really want to have a heavy presence at this event. Baltibrew is the fastest growing club in the state, the youngest on average, and — we think — the most diverse. Let's show the rest of the clubs what we're all about.
Minutes from last Thursday's meeting are after the jump. As noted at the meeting, please read these here. They're posted to the website specifically so we don't have to re-hash all aspects of old business from the previous meeting. This saves us time, and gets us down to the ACTUAL business at hand of drinking, sharing, and discussing homebrew.
In addition to the link to minutes, if you won't take my word for how fun the Guild Holiday Party is, I've included a more thorough description.
Annually on the first Saturday of December, the various homebrew clubs around the state gather to share their homebrew, compete for the honor of best "club hour" presentation, share a meal, and generally hang out.
There is a raffle, a silent auction, door prizes, and most importantly, the ten-plus clubs come up with a themed booth and presentation to affect a happy hour style atmosphere with a select committee voting on the best total presentation.
A themed meal is served — this year's is "Gourtmet TV Dinner," and as guests of the Heavy Seas Brewery, we can sample to our heart's content in their tap room, all of this in addition to sharing our love of libations with other clubs, as well as our own home-brewed products.
Tickets are $25 with proceeds to support various charities. Some of this year's beneficiaries include BARCS, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Baltibrew's theme is "Nightmare Before Xmas," and features off-kilter, spooky Christmas scenarios just like in the namesake movie with some similarly not-quite-Christmas style beverages thrown in to keep it interesting.
Once again, you can purchase tickets beginning at 9a.m. Wed, November 9th (that's tomorrow!) at mdhomebrewers.com/holiday/. Hope to see as many Baltibrewers there as possible.
And last but not least: Minutes!
