Join us on Saturday, November 5th for this year’s AHA Learn To Homebrew Day! We’ll be hanging out at Zipline Brewing Co., 2100 Magnum Cir., and this event doubles as our November social meet-up. Bring your friends or family who are curious about what homebrewing entails – maybe they’ll pick up the hobby too!
Brewers will arrive to unload & set up at Noon. We will kick off the demo at 12:30pm, and wrap it up around 3:30pm. The taproom will be open at Noon for your drinking enjoyment.
Come watch a live brewing demonstration done two ways – Patrick McCabe will be demonstrating an Extract brewing session, while Jeff Anderson shows off how to Brew In A Bag (BIAB) – where you can achieve the benefits of All Grain Brewing but with less equipment!
Homebrew policy: Not permitted. Sorry, guys.
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.
Annual Swap Meet & Learn To Homebrew Day All-Grain Demonstration:
That’s right – it’s time for our annual Equipment Swap Meet! Raid your brewing closet and pick out all that unused gear that you never brew with anymore. Bring it out to Zipline and turn it into CASH! Plus, you’ll feel great knowing that you’ve handed your gadgets and doodads down to another fellow homebrewer – instead of sending it to the landfill or letting it accumulate even more dust!
Join us on Saturday, November 1st from 11:00AM to 3:00PM for our annual Swap Meet.
We will also be celebrating the national AHA Learn To Homebrew Day outside in the Zipline parking lot with a live 10-Gallon, All-Grain brewing demonstration! Bring your friends, bring your family, heck – bring your pastor if he or she is into beer! Co-brewers Chris Evans, Bill Luhman, and Sam Bates will demonstrate all grain brewing procedures for you, while answering your questions about home-brewing equipment, processes, and techniques. The demo will run from 11AM – 2PM.
Zipline’s taproom will be open during our event, so please grab a glass or two of deliciously delightful Zipline beer, brewed by the 2014 Lincoln Chamber of Commerce “Celebrate Business” Small Business Of The Year! (P.S. Congratulations, dudes!)
But, you’ve gotta help us out – please keep your pints indoors or on the patio only!!
NO BEER allowed outside in the Parking Lot!

Huge Congratulations to Lagers member & Beer Quest Winner Tim Thomssen!
Tim has been a very busy braumeister this year: First, he brewed all of those single-hop IPAs for the Hop Tasting early on in 2012, and then cranked out batches of Cheech & Chong Pale Ale like it was going out of style. He also hosted numerous Lagers’ events at his house, and spent his time crafting the super-swanky Lagers Beer Tap Tower that has already seen a lot of action this year… The list goes on, and on!
But somehow, Superman Tim still managed to find enough time to brew a wicked “Smashed Out Of Your Gourd Pumpkin Ale” which cleaned up the competition at Lazlo’s Beer Quest on Sunday, November 11, 2013. Job well done, Tim, and thanks for representing the Lagers at the event! You rock!
