Bigger than ever! Hosted by Blue Blood Brewing!
The annual Lincoln Lagers Big Brew Day is upon us! This year, we will brew on Saturday, May 4th – and we’re being hosted at the Blue Blood Brewing Co. brewhouse! Mash-in is at 9AM, we will have a pot-luck luncheon and there may be a local food truck present that day, and we will hold the May club meeting sometime later in the afternoon.
For the low-down on what’s going on, visit the Lincoln Lagers Big Brew information page. Final cost per 5 gallons of wort isn’t yet available, but as soon as we calculate it, we’ll post it on that page.
The Big Brew Wort is the basis for the 2013 Lincoln Lagers Challenge contest — meaning, if you want to enter a beer into the Challenge, you need to get wort from the Big Brew! There is no substitution! For more details on the Challenge, click through to the Big Brew info page.
2013 Dues-paid members, please sign up to reserve your wort on the forum at: http://www.lincolnlagers.
If you plan to bring a guest to the Big Brew, we ask that you give us a heads-up by posting on the Forum Thread or emailing Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org — We ask that all guests who are not current 2013 Lagers Members please register in advance. If you have not registered in advance and still want to observe the Big Brew, we would ask that you join us as a public guest during Blue Blood’s official tap room hours, but also please respect any rules or boundaries that BB puts into place in order to keep the tap room business and Lagers Brew Day separated.
That’s right, it’s time for the much-awaited, eagerly-anticipated Annual Lincoln Lagers Picnic! Featuring our annual Pull Out Your Best Bottles Of Mead contest, judged by our own Lady Lagers.
We’ll have smoked ribs & other such foods for this year’s Pot-Luck Dinner – if you are bringing a side, etc. that also needs to go onto the smoker, please show up a bit early to allow it enough time to smoke. Feel free to bring non-smoked sides or apps as well, and Tim says he will have a few open taps ready, in case you want to bring a keg of your beer! (Or hey, a keg of anyone‘s beer!)
This year’s picnic will be Saturday, September 8th at 6:00 PM.
(For those Husker Football fans out there, this is the evening of our Away Game against the UCLA Brew-ins at 6:30pm Central time zone. The game will be playing on a TV somewhere at our picnic, don’t worry!)
This year we will also have the Bolzen Beer Band joining us! COOL, MAN!
Watch the Forum Thread for details, here is the link: http://www.lincolnlagers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=666 – the Address will be posted there, with a Google Maps link.
Please RSVP by posting on the Forum Thread, so that we have a good idea of our head count for buying meat, etc.!!! Yeah, I know, I know, we practically never ask for RSVPs, but we want to make sure everyone gets well-fed! So – What are you waiting for?! See you at the Picnic!!!

Lagers, the 2012 AHA Big Brew is quick upon us! Our very own hop abuser (aka Doug Finke) has agreed to again host this always-fun event on Saturday, May 5th. We will be making our beer wort using the AHA’s posted Big Brew recipe called “Bucksnort Brown Ale“.
The Lincoln Lagers’ May 2012 Club Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Big Brew! THE CLUB MEETING IS AT 2:00PM. Even if you do not participate in the Big Brew, please try to come out to Doug’s for the meeting portion of the day!
Any beers produced from our big batch of Bucksnort Brown Ale wort will be qualified for the 2012 Lincoln Lagers Club Challenge. Votes will be cast, and the winner will receive a special opportunity – the chance to brew their beer with Brian and the team at Blue Blood Brewing Company!
April’s meeting will be held at Blue Blood Brewing Co.!
