Now that’s over with, so let’s dive in to our latest announcements:
May Meeting / Big Brew Day
Most of you already know about this – but if you don’t, be sure to join us on Saturday May 10 for the annual Big Brew! Even if you don’t have free time to brew, we’d love you to stop by for an hour or two – chat with brewers, taste a beer or two, and say hi. Having company keeps our day more interesting!
Our club meeting will take place sometime during the afternoon of the Big Brew – there will not be a style of the month or tech topic since we’ll all be busy brewing beer.
We’re going to set up a side table for 2013 Lincoln Lagers Challenge Beers – if you recall, these are the beers we brewed a year ago at Blue Blood Brewing Co to celebrate 2013 Big Brew Day.
Anyone who still has their Big Brew beer from last year, please bring a bottle or two for a very informal tasting & judging. The Best Damn Beer will get bragging rights. And if you’re real nice, Chris will let you lick his mash paddle clean. ;-)
And – don’t forget – we have 5 shares of Big Brew Wort still left to claim! We’re starting out with delicious Best Malz Pilsner base malt, ripe for you to impart your brewing creativity upon.
Nebraska Shoot-Out Club Judging Round – Drop-Off Information
If you have beers that you hope to enter in the Nebraska Shoot-Out, please give them to us as soon as possible! We will perform the club judging round on this coming Friday, May 2nd, at 7:00pm.
All entries need to arrive at Tim Thomssen’s house by 6:00pm on Friday at the absolute latest — ideally, we’d like you to submit your bottles prior to then, so that they can chill and settle before judging takes place.
The best way to turn in your beers is to talk to Tim T. & arrange a time to drop them off at his place. If you don’t have his phone number or email, you can also contact him via Facebook message – which, in turn, you can locate on Lincoln Lagers’ Facebook discussion about the drop-offs. He is loaning us his cooler space, and has plenty of room to store your entry.
