January Meeting & Pot Luck
Join us on Saturday, January 7th, 2017 at the home of Brian & Janet Allison as we celebrate the New Year with our annual tradition of good food, drink, and company.
Bring your finest pot-luck dish (any course!) and fun homebrews or rarities to share. Renew your membership, reserve your Stars hockey tickets, and find out who your 2017 club officers will be! More details soon.
The January meeting is on Saturday 1/9/16 at 6pm. It’s held at a private residence – the address is in the club newsletter, and on our forum.
A quick note: Our January meeting/pot-luck holiday dinner event isn’t really the best representation of “what we do” for *brand new* folks who have never attended any club meetings before now – But if you’re already familiar with how the Lagers work, you’ve already decided you want to be a member, and you just need to take care of the formality of paying dues & joining up for 2016, then we welcome you to please join us at this private event.
We’ll be taking membership dues for 2016 ($30.00 – cash or check) – and electing our 2016 officers.
Bring your best pot-luck dish to share! (Any course)
If you’re not 100% ready to join, we encourage you to instead come visit us at our Club Social Event for the month of January. We’re hosting an informal pint night at Ploughshare Brewing Co. on Monday, 1/18/16 from 5:30-7:30pm – We’ll be in the Loft area.
(The policy regarding bringing your own beer to a Social Night event is subject to change each month – For January’s meet-up, please do NOT bring Homebrew with you to the Social Night.)
Our February meeting is Sunday, 2/7/16, from 2:00-4:00pm at The Happy Raven (and all are welcome to stay after 4pm to hang out!).
Our March meeting is Tuesday, 3/1/16, from 6:30-9:30pm at Zipline Brewing Co.
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!
