Club Meeting @ Shadow Puppet Brewery
April 13, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
April Club Meeting 4/13 will be held at Shadow Puppet Brewery. Brian Cooper will be comparing a Cold IPA style.
The Bay Area Brew Off (BABO) Comp is open for entries. This is the comp that displays winning bottles at the Alameda County Fair. It would be great to see some Mad Zs with winning ribbons on their bottles. Entries are only $3!. Due 4/13 at Morebeer San Leandro or 4/15 if you drop off at the Alameda County Fair building while they do the sort.
If you’re available to sort bottles on 4/15 I’m sure the Draught Board Club would appreciate the help. If you’re a beer judge they will need help in early May.
BABO also has a label competition. Show off those graphic skills creating a fun label for your brew. Brew is not required for the label comp. You can submit an empty bottle with your label. This is only $3 entry fee too.
The Livermore Valley Craft Brew Festival is on 5/13. Our club will be hosting a pouring station at the event. This year we’re out on the Las Positas College sports field. If you donate a keg, you get in for free. This is a great event that we’ve participated in for the last 6 years (every year) This is also an opportunity to see many of our friends and neighbors sharing our awesome brews. We have honestly been a festival favorite and we want to keep it going! Preliminary Googlesheet tracking keg signups.
New officers have officially been elected! Congratulations!!
