May’s meeting was a success that was hosted at Kurt’s house. Lots of good food and beer was shared. Kurt smoked a brisket. Jay and Chris Black paired their tropical double IPA with bacon wrapped cream cheese filled jalapenos and Mike paired his chocolate peanut butter stout with some homemade ice cream made with the stout. Several other dishes rounded things out. Carlos brought some homebrews he had been aging for a year that were pretty tasty. Unfortunately, he couldn’t tell us what style they were. The one I tried was simply number 4. Dee brought his IPA and Alt as well. Several new members arrived that included Judd, Eda, and Brian. Brian also brought a few homebrews that we enjoyed and appreciated as well. Kurt, who rarely brews, served us a treat with his Irish stout we all enjoyed as well. Several other commercial craft brews to include Lagunitas and a variety of Troegs beers made their rounds as well. We passed around some ideas for T-shirts and tallied up a consensus of votes on their designs. Brian, one of the new members, has some connections he may be able to save us money with on this year’s shirts. We will post the T-shirt ideas on the blog and send out an email for the opinions of those that were not able to attend. We also announced that next month’s meeting is when yearly dues will be collected. Ncxt month’s meeting will be hosted at Ben’s. We will send out more details as that date gets closer. Overall, a pretty successful meeting. Thanks to everyone that contributed and attended, and a special thanks to Kurt for hosting!
