Happy New Year 2014, everybody! This is a pretty awesome year for our organization — because we’re turning 21!
If you have ideas about how we should celebrate this momentous occasion, jump in on the Facebook page and let us know what you think!
In the meanwhile… just like a finicky batch of beer, we’re still trying to get the February meeting plan to ferment out “just right”, so while you wait, here’s a teaser… the newly-printed batch of Lincoln Lagers business cards just arrived in time for the big Winterfest Ales & Auction this weekend! (Tickets are on sale at T.O. Haas locations now, follow @AAFLincoln on Twitter for more details.)
Oh yeah… and speaking of Winterfest… you probably want to know what’s going to be on tap? I’ve got that in store for you too. Enjoy!

Monday, December 9th, 2013, Starts at 5:00PM – at Misty’s Downtown.
This tapping party is featuring the collaboration beer from Modern Monks & Zipline – a Bourbon Barrel Wee Heavy. This beer clocks in at 10% ABV and was aged in barrels for 7 months. All pints are $2 on Monday Night.
While you’re there, pick up a few of the stunning Modern Monks holiday ornaments, made by TMCO here in Lincoln – these dapper metal ornaments are $5 each and all proceeds will go towards medical costs for our fellow Lincoln Lagers club member Shaun McCabe, who currently awaits a double lung and liver transplant. For the full story, please check out the Nebraska Beer Blog link above.
The Homebrewers’ Night At The Ballpark has been moved to a new date. We apologize for the last minute change on this event. Here is the new information:

Time: 5:00 pm – Whenever
Address: 330 South 44th St.
In addition to the monthly meeting activities, Ryan is hosting his annual commercial beer tasting, “The Hair of the Un-Bitten Dog”.
As usual, we encourage all of those attending to bring a commercial or homebrew to share. Ryan will have some delicious meats to eat, but please bring a SIDE DISH.
Once again this year, Ryan will also going to hold a “Best of Show Competition” between the homebrewers. This competition will be based on the people’s choice. Everyone in attendance will have a vote to determine the “Best of Show Winner.” The winner will have their name placed on a traveling trophy and awarded a cash prize.
We have a small change to the format for the competition on Saturday (10/6/2012)! Due to the potentially large number of entries, we will limit the quantity to the first 20 that show up and register. The fee is only $1. Plus, all beers should be under 8% ABV. Ryan will need to sign you in at the meeting on Saturday. Arrangements for entries can be made with Ryan by contacting him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Judging will be done Saturday at the meeting, it will *not* be done Friday night as previously announced.
See you in October! And don’t forget about the Nebraska State Stroke Foundation’s Okto-Beerfest tasting event, which is coming up soon on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at the Lancaster County Event Center. You can check out the Event’s Facebook Page here, or you can go directly to the Four Star Gifts web site to buy tickets!
You should definitely consider attending this fantastic night of fermented offerings, firstly to cheer on your fellow Lincoln Lagers who will be serving our homebrewed beers at the event, but also to check out all of the breweries & wineries in attendance and to support the Foundation!
