Beer News;

 

All gatherings have been canceled and breweries are all closed to visits, other than take-outs.  We encourage you to stop by and take out beer from our craft brewery friends to help ease the financial burden. 

The BIER Brew & Food Fest, benefiting Broome Habitat for Humanity has been canceled,  we’ll try next year, and we’re probably going to do a “raise your glass” fund raiser, stay tuned for details.

The 2020 AHA National Homebrewers Conference scheduled for June 18– 21 is still on, but will likely be cancelled.  The annual judging has been cancelled, and at least some of our 1st round entries are being distilled to make hand sanitizer.     

.Homebrew Tastings;     

We were all just drinking our own beers or commercial ones, wishing we could share, but hopefully we’ll be able to, safely, in the somewhat near future.

-------------------------------------------------

Next meeting will be May, 13th, again on ZOOM.  Stay safe, and Brew On!
