Next Monthly Meeting & Big Brew Tasting

When & Where: Thursday, July 7, 2022, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Six o’clock for socializing, business at 7 o’clock, then we taste the Big Brews! Kim & Anita’s house, 1008 S. 32nd Street, Lincoln, Nebraska (32nd & E… E as in Elvis or Extract.)

Big Brew ’22: In addition to bringing some brew to share with everybody (home or craft), we’re planning to taste the Big Brew beers from the 2022 Big Brew. We started with a 1.060 cream ale wort from Code Brewing. We’ll set up Big Brew stations in our garage and patio. Each taster and Big Brewer will get one voting ticket. After you’ve tasted the brews and decided on your favorites, you vote for yours by dropping your ticket into the cup of the brewer you enjoyed most. He or she who collects the most tickets wins. First place gets a $50 gift card from Code Brewing Company, second and third receive $25 and $10, respectively. In case of a tie, let’s hope there’s enough beer for a “Thunderdome-style” match-up: Two beers go in, but only one beer walks out. Or something like that…

Big Brewers! Yeah, YOU! We need to know who is planning to participate! Please contact me ASAP so we can set up a space for everybody. I’m guessing you should bring at least two, maybe three, 12-ounce bottles or the equivalent. We’ll provide some glasses. One other thing: If you brewed with the Hopsteiner hops, be sure to note that and let us know. Many of us are curious as to how those are going to bitter, taste and smell. Thank you!

That Zipline Pilsner Grain: We gave away half of it at the last meeting via the 50/50. Winners included me (Kim Theesen), Lacy Phillips, Jim Novotny and Craig Samek. We still have 50 pounds to share. Would like some base grain? Well, the first five people who respond to this announcement will receive ten pounds each. It’s Baird’s Pilsin Malt. Thanks to Zipline Brewing!
