The BeerBQ is getting close!

It’s been almost a month since I last badgered you about BeerBQ RSVPs, and that means the event is almost upon us.  We are now getting to the pointy end of organising things, so   the sooner we have a good idea of numbers the better.  No one wants to to see us running out of food…

Don’t forget that this is a fund-raising event for the club, so tell your workmates and friends if you think they would enjoy a night of Beer, BBQ and Bowls.  There will be an informal Beer of the Night vote, with points towards Brewer Of The Year, and we are also working on another surprise “entertainment” (no, not that…).

We would like RSVPs back by two weeks before the event to give us the best chance of getting the catering right. Email if you are coming along, and don’t forget to tell us if you are bringing a keg (or bottles).

Summer Competition Results

At the March meeting last night we had the pleasure of announcing the winner and place-getters of the summer competition.  Jade gave us a run down of the style (Session IPA, if you’ve been under a rock), and a good summary of the entries judged.  The scores were quite tightly grouped, with Jade commenting that they scored hard.  So without further ado, here are the results:

1st place: Kieren Vercoe
2nd place: Kieren Vercoe
3rd place: Darren Billett

All place-getters took home a 2kg bag of grain, some silicone tubing and a tube clamp, as well as some back issues of Beer and Brewer. Second place also got a mash weapon, with first place taking the coveted “brew your beer at the Wheaty” prize. Kieren will get to brew his beer some time in August or September, and the aim is to have it on tap in time for ANHC in October. I’ts hard to think of better bragging rights than that!

Well done to all entrants, and thanks especially to Jade and the Wheaty for your ongoing support, Simon Rofe for the procurement of prizes, and those who judged the competition.
