Time: 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. for socializing. Brief business at 7 o’clock.
What else? Bring some homebrew and a dish to share. Drink some Cosmic Eye Brew.Happy 2022 to everybody! We’re kicking off the new year with a little get together at Lincoln’s own Cosmic Eye Brewing Company. We’d like to thank head brewer Sam Riggins for hosting the club. Bring some grub ‘n’ brew to share. Sample a pint of Cosmic Eye’s tasty brew too. The club will provide some plastic ware and plates. We’ll be announcing the results of the election for your 2022 officers. In addition, this would be a perfect time to renew your club membership. It’s still only $25 for the year. Such a bargain!

Speaking of elections, check your email. All members should have received a ballot and that ballot is due by midnight on Jan. 5. Please vote. Thank you!
Speaking of bargains, we’re working on a return to road trippin’. Yes, the annual bus trip is coming in February. We’re looking at late in the month with a run to Omaha. There are some new breweries in the “Big O” and we’re itching to get up there and try ’em. More details to follow soon, so stay tuned!

Assuming pandemic things stay somewhat in check (you got your shots, right?), we’d like to resume the off week in our beer calendars to get our socials going again. We’re looking at the end of January to check out one of Lincoln’s newest breweries: Corn Coast Brewing. They’re located at 1433 Dahlberg Drive, which is just north of South 14 Street and Yankee Hill Road. Look for a gathering at Backswing Brewing in March.

The club is also working on the details for the quarterly contests with the 402s, the Nebraska Shootout and Sower’s Cup. We’ll be encouraging the club members to brew for these contests. Look for some grain and hops to come your way, courtesy of your favorite homebrew club.

The next monthly meeting of the Lincoln Lagers Homebrew Club will take place on Thursday, December 2, 2021. We’re meeting at Lee’s Chicken, our return to the December tradition. Oh and don’t forget that the mask mandate is still on in the city. I know, I know. Just do it for now. Thank you! Lee's Restaurant

Show up around 6 p.m. for social hour and chit chat. Have some chicken or onion rings while we’re hanging out. Meeting and beer business is at 7 p.m. We’ll be talking about 2022! What? Yes. This year is almost toast. It’s time to think about officer elections and a possible bus trip in the new year.

We’d also like to do the intraclub part of the 402 comp that night. Anyone who wants to participate, please bring three bottles of your dopplebock. The head-to-head part with the 402s will be Saturday, December 4, at 2:00 p.m. at Cosmic Eye.

In other news… BIG news! SAD news! Kirk’s Brew & Gifts is closing as of the end of 2021. The rumors are true. Stop by Kirk’s soon and stock up on the local stuff. More details in the soon-to-come Decembeer Brewsletter.

Bring some homebrew and we’ll see you on Thursday at Lee’s. Cheers!
