Big Brew ??

So, we missed big brew in May.  Well, it was kinda intentional.  The weather is really iffy the first Saturday of May, and we opted not to chance it.  If it;s too cold, nobody shows up, and if it’s nice, it is usually the first nice weekend of the year, and people just….

Anyway, at our late April meeting, we decided to try a brew event in June.  It’s a bid late to post this, and I apologize in advance, but what do you think of an event on June 8th or 15th (both on a Saturday)?  Please let us know via this survey  (click here) and let us know if you are interested and can help out.

This time of year should yield a bigger crowd or at least a decent number of interested folks.  Please respond soon, so we can commit (or not) by this weekend.

Thanks in advance,

Chad H

Brew Club Meeting

Klockow Brewing will host another Boreal Brewers meeting at the brewery.  We’ll meet Monday evening, April 22, 6:00 PM.  We’ve got a number of brew events to discuss, and lots of brewing discussion to share.  We need to plan where we’re going to participate in the annual Big Brew Day May 4th.  If you’re thinking of joining the club, you should come to one of these meetings and find out what we’re about!

We’ll be discussing Big Brew, the 10th anniversary Deer River BBQ and Brewfest event July 19-20, Klocktoberfest September 28, the Eldercircle dinner in September, and the U of M event in August.  If you want to find out what it’s like to attend the All Pints North July 27 event in Duluth, or the Hopped Up Caribou event July 12-14 in Lutsen, we’ve got people who attend both, who can talk about it.

We potluck beer, and many people will want you to try their newest brew.  Since brewers tend to also be good cooks, we potluck food as well.  Come and share some brewing camaraderie in a wonderfully welcoming brewery, and be ready to learn.

Annual dues are due in the spring (like now).  We maintain our club web presence and our liability insurance for the sum of $15 per member per year.  It’s a deal!
