It’s all in the yeast, but let’s see what the club has to say about that!

Nominate Yo Self, Fool!

It’s time for club leadership elections again. This month we will be taking nominations for the position of club secretary.

Duties of this position include helping with email and social media updates. Remembering all the great ideas we come up with at our monthly meetings and helping to put them into practice. Working with the media as a representative of the club when needed. And busting your ass behind the scenes to help the rest of the management team make our club run all smooth-like.

IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW AND LOVE would be good at this sort of thing, the February meeting is where you make that public knowledge. We need a strong candidate to fill this role in for our club. Nominations will be accepted up until the day of our March meeting when we will hold an election to determine the winner.

Please contact me with any questions or thoughts about the elections or to throw your name in the pot.

Cheers and Mahalo plenty,
JE

2013 National Homebrewers Conference

Our club just finished up an excellent weekend in Philadelphia at the 2013 National Homebrewers Conference. There were over 3,500 people in attendance sharing all kinds of brewing knowledge and beers over the course of three days.

On Friday night we participated in Club Night with about 90 other homebrew clubs. Club Night is an all-homebrew beer festival. Clubs from around the country have the chance to show off their creativity with themed booths and costumes and great homebrews. There were over a thousand different beers available at this event!

Our Amish-themed Club Night booth was a huge hit. We poured milk stout from a life-sized cardboard cow, rocked Amish outfits and sat on hay bales sharing beers.
