  • This is our eighth time having a virtual meeting. We'll continue with virtual meetings until we can have an in-person meeting.

  • A few members participated in National Learn to Homebrew Day on Nov. 7. Leigh brewed an oatmeal stout. Ryan and Brian brewed a brown. Gregg K. brewed a caramel amber ale.
Holiday Party
  • The in-person Holiday Party has been postponed to Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021.
  • Plans are underway for a bottle exchange to celebrate in December! Rather than congregate many of us to exchange beer, we’re doing it as a drop-off on Wednesday and Thursday, and a separate pickup on Saturday. Bring 72 ounces of beer, give or take, for the exchange in any equivalent: 6 x 12 oz. = 72 ounces; 3 x 22 oz. bombers = 66 ounces; 3 x 750 ml champagne bottles = 76.0816 ounces. You can bring commercial beer or homebrew to exchange. Please, don't give any beer you wouldn't want to receive!
  • Drop-offs: 5:30-7 p.m. Dec. 2 and Dec. 3 at Leigh’s house in Lawrence, 2231 Barker Ave; or 4-7 p.m. Dec. 2 and Dec. 3 at Ryan’s house in Shawnee, 12301 W. 54th St. If the times/dates don’t work for you but you want to participate, reach out to Leigh or Ryan to make arrangements. Pickup will take place on Dec. 5 (time TBA).
  • Watch for details on a virtual Zoom gathering on Dec. 5.
2021 Elections 25th Anniversary
  • Brewfest XXV has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021. We’ll have the campsite beginning on that Thursday.
  • 89 paid members
  • Make sure your dues are paid so you can vote in the officer election!
