All current Lincoln Lagers Members and their families/guests are invited. Kids are welcome (sigh, I guess…) – Please, no pets.
Dinner will be served! The club will provide BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches (incl. buns and all the fixin’s) for everyone!
Bring your own side dish, appetizer, dessert, etc. to share!
Bring homebrew! We will have 5 open taps for you to pour beer from! (Just chilled with ice – the compressor died!) The taps are ball-lock, please bring the appropriate fittings if yours is a a pin lock or Sanke keg.
Return of the Annual Mead Contest! Bring (1) 12oz. or larger bottle of your mead to enter for the Lady Lagers to judge. Any style or variety of mead is accepted!
Return of the Bolzen Beer Band! Drink beer, stuff yourself with food, and enjoy the hip, happening sounds of Eclectic Party Punk Polka from our favorite party animals!
P.S.: Bring some cash with you!! As usual, we will be doing the “50/50” raffle drawing!! The winner gets half of the pot, paid out in cold, hard CA$H!!! – and the other half goes to the Band! Plus – who knows? – maybe we will give away some extra SWAG to additional raffle ticket holders!
Yes, There’s Football!! – The Nebraska Cornhuskers play the Northwestern Wildcats on 10/18 at 6:30pm (away game). We will have the football game showing on the big screen in Tim’s basement in case you bleed so much Big Red that you can’t pry yourself away to judge some mead or to dance the polka. GO BIG RED! (But go HOMEBREW, too!)

Oct./Nov. Club Newsletter:
We hope all of our club members & their family and friends will join us on Saturday, September 7, 2013 for the annual Lincoln Lagers Club Picnic. It will be hosted again at Tim T.’s house, and we will rev things up right at 5:00pm. If you are not sure where Tim’s place is at, check the Forum Thread for his address & a map link.
Yes, it’s true, the Huskers are playing vs. Southern Miss at 5:00pm. Luckily, the game will be on the big screen TV in the basement in case you identify as a Die Hard Husker Fan and don’t want to miss the action.
The picnic will be Pot-Luck, bring out your best dishes! Apps, salads, bread, cheese, sides, soups, desserts, whatever you want to bring!
As in past years, the club will buy a bunch of meat, which Tim will smoke and serve up for the main course – If you are bringing a food item that needs to be smoked, like small appetizers, etc., be sure to shoot Tim a message to coordinate when the smoker racks will be free and what time you need to be there with your food.
The picnic also marks the return of the annual Lincoln Lagers Mead Contest. Please bring at least (3) 12oz. bottles of your mead if you want to enter it!
We need all the Lady Lagers that we can get, to participate in the judging! Even if you don’t “know what makes a good mead”, this is simply a Best Tasting Mead contest. So please, jump in there and try it out, even if you’re a neophyte to the world of fermented honey.
Last, but I assure you, CERTAINLY not least — please welcome back with a hearty cheer – The Bolzen Beer Band!! Come get stuffed with great food, even better beer and mead, and have a stomping good time dancing polka!

Our September club meeting, Annual Club Picnic, and Lady Lagers’ Mead Contest, will be held on Saturday, September 7th.
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!!!

and Lincoln Lagers Monthly Meeting
Saturday, October 15th, 2010
5:00 P.M.-????? (Until the cows come home or you go home!!)
330 South 44th St. Lincoln, NE
This years theme is: Wisconsin Breweries
This event will have over 20 commercial craft beers provided by DOGS & SPUDS in addition to a few of my home brews.
Admittance is FREE, but we encourage all of those attending to bring a commercial or home brew beer to share. There will be sausages, soup, bread and cheese provided, but I ask that everyone bring a SIDE DISH to share.
Once again this year we are also going to hold a “Best of Show Competition” between the home brewers. This competition will be based on the people’s choice. Everyone in attendance will have a vote to determine the “Best of Show Winner.” The winner will have their name placed on a traveling trophy and a cash prize of $30 will be awarded.
Additional information is on the Lincoln Lagers Forum. Questions can be addressed to Event Host Ryan Cairns, his number is listed in the forum thread.
See you on the 15th!!!
