We’re less than a week away from the event of the season: The Lincoln Lagers 2009 Nebraska Brew Tour! We’re going to SchillingBridge, Nebraska Brewing Co, and Beer Corner USA. More details can be found in the forum. Check it out! As press time, we still have a few seats left. Write me today and reserve yours! email@example.com. Oh, and yes we will have beer and doorprizes on the bus!
President Josh said to tell everybody we’ll be meeting at his house in May on the 16th, a Saturday. Come over around six, bring some brew and some food for the potluck. And if you want, earlier that day we’ll be doing a little group brew. We’ll try to get mashing around 9:30 am. Come see what all grain is all about, you new brewers. Let josh know if you’re coming to brew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I apologize for the downtime.
The forums are down, and won’t be back up at least for a few hours, possibly a day or two.
EDIT 4/14: FORUMS ARE BACK UP. You will need to re-register your account.
The Monks are releasing their latest offering, St. Meinrad’s Quad Ale!
The release party is next Wednesday evening, March 11th 2009, at the Bread & Cup at 6:30pm.
There will be a special menu prepared to compliment all of the delicious flavors one will find while drinking a St. Meinrad. Here are a few of the special offerings Bread and Cup will have (along with their normal Fabulous Menu):
- Confit Duck Legs $7
- Crispy Bone Marrow $8
- Roasted Chicken Wings $6
- Flatbread with Serrano, Manchego & Quince $8
A word of caution for those that are not as prompt as others, the last time we had a release party, the kegs were empty in two and a half hours. Come join the Brothers for uncommonly good food and drink!
Thursday, March 5th, 7:00 pm
1501 Center Park Rd. Suite 100
Lincoln, NE 68512 (402) 464-2152
Directions: Take 10th or 27th Street to Nebraska Hwy 2. Take Hwy 2 to S. 14th Street and head south, past Pioneers to Center Park Road. Head east to 1501, Suite 100. Come hungry. Bring your home-brew. :-P
On the agenda: Thermometer calibration. Bring in your thermometers and let’s see how close we are…
Next time you’re in Yia Yia’s, be sure to tell them what an awesome idea it is to have such a kick-ass beer list to help you decide which one of 300 beers you wanna drink! ;-)
Good news, we are finishing our transition away from the “temporary” domain name, LethalAndYoung.net, that we’ve been using during the new site implementation.
Bad news, there might be a short downtime during the switch-out. This could mean that the blog and/or forum may be inaccessible for a short amount of time. We do not anticipate any problems, and in a worst-case scenario, downtime should be less than 2 days.
I’ll keep you all updated here on the blog. Any questions, feel free to email Chris. Thanks! :)
Update! The transition is complete, and all content should be finished with its migration.
The blog theme is currently broken, I’m working to wrestle that back into place. The rest of it should be working.
THANK YOU ALL for your patience during the transition. If you see things that still refer to the old domain name, please send me a comment on this post, or email me, or contact me the forum. Thanks guys!!
The next gathering of the Lincoln Lagers will be on the traditional first Thursday of the month, FeBREWary 5th, 2009. We’ll start at 7:00 pm. The tentative meeting agenda will include resurrecting the Challenge with the OmaHOPs, bus trip ideas, and possibly a sampling of Irish red ales. Seeing how many of you will be brewing (or probably have brewed by now) a red for the next Lazlo’s BeerQuest, we thought this could be a good opportunity to sample this style.
Directions: Head south on 70th Street, past Pioneers. Turn west on Forest Lake, then north on 69th to Summerset. Turn left to the clubhouse. Park in the parking envelopes.
Mr. Josh Ames is our new president for 2009. Running on a “don’t let your meat loaf” platform, he promised that “Change in the Lincoln Lagers doesn’t start from the top down. It starts from the bottom up… just like those little bubbles rise to make a foamy head, I can be foamy too.” Terry Schwimmer will continue on as club treasurer and Chris Evans – with continued support from Brian Allison and Kim Theesen – will work on the website. Kim T. will also revise the Brew News schedule to a quarterly publication starting with March’s issue.
Thanks goes out to former El Presidente Jim Hust for his service in 2008 and to Brian & Janet Allison for hosting the January meeting. Lots of food and good beveages were enjoyed by all. For a complete run down on who brought what, check out the Lincoln Lagers forum. Oh, and it’s time to renew your membership! Contact Schwimbo and send him your money – Still only $25. Or you can give it to him at the FeBREWary meeting. Watch this blog for more details!
