Join us at Cosmic Eye Brewing, Thursday, August 4, for the monthly meeting
When: Thursday, August 4, 2022, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Six o’clock for socializing, business at 7 o’clock.
Where: Cosmic Eye Brewing, 6800 P Street, #300, Lincoln, NE 68505, 531.500.2739.It’s “Nebraska’s Most Heaviest Brewery” and we’re meeting there next week. You should join us. In order to waive the fee for our monthly gathering, we are politely requesting you purchase a couple of tasty Cosmic Eye brews, and please tip the ever-so-fine wait staff. (That’s a buck for a five-dollar beer for you math-challenged out there…) As per normal operations, bring some homebrew to share with your fellow Lincoln Lagers. Cheers!Big Brew ’22: We tasted the Big Brew beers from the 2022 Big Brew. As a reminder, we started with a 1.060 cream ale wort from Code Brewing. For the tasting, we had eight stations set up. After our first round, we had a winner but need a taste-off to determine second and third places. Finally, after much debate and sampling, Mark Beatty took first-place honors and a $50 gift card from Code Brewing. Second place and a $25 card went to host Kim Theesen. Coming in third was Craig Samek, who received a $10 gift card. Thank you to all eight participants!

The Sower’s Cup Challenge: We sure would like to encourage all current members to brew at least one batch of beer (your choice of styles) in August for the Sower’s Cup, Oct. 14 & 15, 2022. Perhaps you’ll brew in September if you are making an IPA or maybe you have one or two right now in the kegerator or on the shelf that you think are pretty darn good. Ideally, every member would have at least one entry in the 2022 competition. We want the Lincoln Lagers to win the medal count and we can do it if you enter. Oh, hey! Speaking of the comp, we would also like to remind everyone that they receive a discount for the Sower’s Cup banquet if they help judge/steward the event. It is work and it is loads of fun; you learn more about judging beer and you get to drink some tasty homebrew from all over the place. More information will soon be coming your way.

That Zipline Pilsner Base Grain: The Final Announcement… We gave away half of it at the June meeting via the 50/50. Winners were notified. We still have about 40 pounds to share. Would you like some? Well, the next four people who respond to this announcement will receive ten pounds each. It’s Baird’s Pilsen Malt. Thank you to Zipline Brewing for sharing. Oh, and if Kim doesn’t hear anything by the next meeting, it’s going into his compost pile.


More homebrew news: 2022 Nebraska Shootout: This Saturday, July 30!

The Nebraska Shootout is slated for July 30, 2022, with Homebrewers Anonymous acting as the host club. The Shootout judging and award ceremony will take place at Monolithic Brewing Company, 4915 N. 12th Street, in Omaha. For those who don’t know how this competition works, it’s a competition that is restricted to homebrew clubs in Nebraska. A handful of styles are chosen each year, and each club is allowed two entries per category. Points are awarded and bragging rights follow. 

Save the Dates!

Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022, is the date for the return of the club’s annual pot luck picnic. Tim & Theresa Thomssen will be our hosts. More details to come!

Friday & Saturday, Oct. 14 & 15, 2022: The Lincoln Lagers Sower’s Cup. This is our annual, regional homebrew competition. This event is tons of fun … and a lot of work. We are hoping for YOU to volunteer a little time to make this event the continued success that it’s been for several years now. We’ll be posting more details soon, along with sponsorship opportunities and deadlines for you to enter your brew.


Is there more? Yes! There’s always more!

Next Monthly Meeting & Big Brew Tasting
.

When & Where: Thursday, July 7, 2022, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Six o’clock for socializing, business at 7 o’clock, then we taste the Big Brews! Kim & Anita’s house, 1008 S. 32nd Street, Lincoln, Nebraska (32nd & E… E as in Elvis or Extract.)

Big Brew ’22: In addition to bringing some brew to share with everybody (home or craft), we’re planning to taste the Big Brew beers from the 2022 Big Brew. We started with a 1.060 cream ale wort from Code Brewing. We’ll set up Big Brew stations in our garage and patio. Each taster and Big Brewer will get one voting ticket. After you’ve tasted the brews and decided on your favorites, you vote for yours by dropping your ticket into the cup of the brewer you enjoyed most. He or she who collects the most tickets wins. First place gets a $50 gift card from Code Brewing Company, second and third receive $25 and $10, respectively. In case of a tie, let’s hope there’s enough beer for a “Thunderdome-style” match-up: Two beers go in, but only one beer walks out. Or something like that…

Big Brewers! Yeah, YOU! We need to know who is planning to participate! Please contact me ASAP so we can set up a space for everybody. I’m guessing you should bring at least two, maybe three, 12-ounce bottles or the equivalent. We’ll provide some glasses. One other thing: If you brewed with the Hopsteiner hops, be sure to note that and let us know. Many of us are curious as to how those are going to bitter, taste and smell. Thank you!

That Zipline Pilsner Grain: We gave away half of it at the last meeting via the 50/50. Winners included me (Kim Theesen), Lacy Phillips, Jim Novotny and Craig Samek. We still have 50 pounds to share. Would like some base grain? Well, the first five people who respond to this announcement will receive ten pounds each. It’s Baird’s Pilsin Malt. Thanks to Zipline Brewing!
