It was great seeing everyone who was able to attend. Huge thanks goes out to Brew Dog for allowing us to come out and receive a tour of their brewing facilities. While Steve was unable to make it because of a delayed plane, we were still able to get a tour from the brewer on duty and he even spent time after the tour answering questions from our members. We announced that Ron will be vacating his board Membership position due to some personal issues and that Mitchell McGreal will be taking over his position.

We then talked about the hospitality that Zachrich provided us over the summer, allowing us to head over to their hop farm and brew 40gallons of beer using around 10pounds of their wet hops! We had a tasting event at Jason's house in August, and we then distributed what was left of the beer to the club members in attendance. If you can show some love to Zachrich by purchasing hops or just following them on FB or instagram any little thing we can do to help them would be a great gesture from our members. We are also in need of judges for Beer for Boobs on October 24th. We are providing a $15 gift card at Bud Dairy Hall to every judge as a thank you! We recommend BJCP but you do not need to be BJCP certified to help out with this event. This could be some great practice for anyone who is interested in getting BJCP certified.
