The Notch Infinite Jest Clone Competition Judging will take place on Sunday, June 11th (exact time TBD). We will once again be throwing down our club brewing chops against BFD. We will be hosted by Chris Lohring at Notch Brewing in Salem. All who brewed are welcome to join and we encourage all club members to sign up to judge or steward. If you brewed for the competition but are unable to join for judging day, you will need to make arrangements for your entries to be transported to Notch.
Join us at Castle Island Brewing on May 10 at 7:00 PM. We’ll have an opportunity to talk shop with the brewery.
This year sorting day is being hosted by Lord Hobo Brewery. We generally pick up the entries for sorting the morning of sorting day and then transport them to the sorting location to do the job. This means we need volunteers for picking up entries from the drop off locations that morning and bringing them to Lord Hobo in Woburn, and volunteers to assist those folks with sorting the entries at the brewery.
Sign up for these activities on the form. It has each of our drop off locations listed, and the time that the drop off location opens the morning of April 30.
What’s great about sorting day? The primary advantage, for those of you who have already entered and paid for your entries, is that you can wait until sorting day to bring your beers, which means you get an extra week of dry hopping and conditioning before final packaging! To re-iterate a key phrase in that sentence: “already entered and paid for”.
Our April meeting will have Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing hosting the Worts on Tuesday, Aprill 11 from 7-9 PM. They are located in Framingham in the original Jack’s Abbey brewery. The brewery will lead us on a tour to talk shop with samples to follow.
Our March meeting has been re-scheduled for Tuesday 03/21 at 6:00 PM. We’ll be meeting at Aeronaut Brewing in Somerville. Aeronaut will be giving us a tour and talking shop.
