Reminder! Winter Party THIS Saturday!

Smitty here. Reminding everyone about our Winter Party coming up tomorrow starting at 6:30 PM. The club is providing a BBQ trifecta of pulled pork, chicken, and jalapeno-cheddar sausage. As always, please bring an appetizer, side, or desert. Our address is HERE.

We will award the Brewer Royale trophy and prizes along with the Big Mohunker prize. You must be present to win the Big Mohunker.

Please bring your own beverages of choice, including and especially homebrew to share. The club kegerator is not slated to be in attendance, but we do have a limited number of spare jockey boxes should you wish to bring a keg. Tap space is first come, first served, so please email [email protected] no later than 6PM today to reserve a space. If you do not let me know or we run out of available taps, you will need to supply your own gas and dispensing method.

Texas weather in January is living up to expectations tomorrow with high only in the upper 30’s. Our garage bar is climate controlled and well ventilated, so we should have plenty of room to congregate somewhere inside. Smoking is permitted in the garage bar.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected].


Recap of Tuesday Meeting/Socials Update/Upcoming Events

  • See Club Calendar HERE for dates.

Club Meetups:

    More details HERE.
  • Saturday, Jan 27 8am – 3pm: Big Rig Brewday / Housewarming Party: 5pm till ???
    Some of you know that one of our longtime club members Wayne Yandell has a 1.5 bbl 3-vessel system that the club and others brew on from time to time. Several award-winning beers have been brewed on this system in recent years, including Labor of Love best of show and a Bluebonnet stein.
    A group from the club will be brewing a Czech Pilsner(BJCP 3B Czech Premium Pale Lager) on Saturday, Jan 27 starting at 8am. Anyone is welcome to attend and even help brew if you want. Wayne and his wife, Jennifer are graciously hosting a house warming party starting at 5pm as they have recently completed construction at their new residence on this beautiful property. Please RSVP to Wayne at his email address HERE. The address is HERE.

Club Parties:

I did not touch on club parties throughout the year for the benefit of anyone new. Last year, we had 4 club parties throughout the year and we plan to continue with that, assuming we get volunteer hosts. Aside from the Winter Party mentioned above, they are presently TBD as follows:

  • Spring Party: Sometime April-June timeframe.
  • Limbo Awards/Summer Party: Follows Limbo Judging in August
  • Fall/Oktoberfest Party: September/October

Stay tuned on these events throughout the year.

In conclusion, we have a busy slate of activities coming up this year. As I stated in the January Newsletter, our success as a club with these events relies on member attendance. We understand everyone is very busy and the likelihood for most of attending every event isn’t possible. Please plan to attend as many as you can. If you have ANY questions about brewdays and events, please do not hesitate to email me HERE.
