July meeting

By mjohnson on 7/15/2014

Remember that the July meeting is this Saturday, July 19th at 1:00 p.m.  Yes, it is earlier than in the past.  No, it's not too early for beer.   Hope to see you there.  I'll have several pilsners plus maybe a surprise or two in the BOM cooler.  Please be aware that Ray is also open for business during that time and we need to stay out of the way as much as possible so he can sell lots of stuff.

Style of the month correction

By mjohnson on 6/11/2014

Comrades,

While reading the latest newsletter, I noticed that the KGB calendar needs to be corrected.  The style for August is not Barley Wine.  It will be wheat beers as in the past.  We did Barley Wines a couple of months ago and I cannot imagine doing that style on the hottest, most humid month of the year.  Plus, I have not had the opportunity to re-stock the KGB vault with new Barley Wines yet.

1st, Donald Sajda, KGB
2nd, Karl & Ann Marie Pierce, KGB
3rd, John Dawson, KGB
Honorable Mention, Mark Schoppe, Austin Zealots
Honorable Mention, Corey Martin, Austin Zealots

Congratulations to all of the winners, and a hearty thank you! to all y'all who helped make the 19th Annual Big Batch Brew Bash the big success that it was.
