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 http://www.monumentcitybrewing.com/festival-tix.
  • Many thanks to Jon for coordinating a blind ingredient tasting/discussion. It was super fun/informative and a great test for the palate!
