COVID-19 has really shut down opportunities to get together for club events. All the regular summer tastings and competitions in the Northland were cancelled, and we have not had a Boreal Brewers meeting since it all started.
There’s always a background level of interest in buying and selling used equipment, and giving away bottles and other material. One long term brewer has decided to retire his brewing effort, and wishes to give away a fair amount of kegging equipment. Most of us have stepped up a level in brewing and have certain equipment we’re no longer using.
We’ve been doing some mulling on setting up a an outdoor distanced event where we can do a swap / sales / giveaway exchange. We’d be interested in ideas on how we might handle such an event, and also would like to know who has equipment / supplies they’d like to sell or give away.
Please respond to this post if you have ideas to share. If you have a list of things you’d like to give away or sell, you can email that to firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll consolidate and present that in the next post on this topic.
Missing the fun. Too many empty chairs out there, and too few truckloads of homebrew being driven to events.
