Hey BAMers! This year’s club holiday party will once again be at Faction Brewing on Saturday, December 10th from 2-6pm. This will take place of the usual Thursday meeting for the month. We’ll be setting up the party at the back of the brewery, so please park in the “rear” of the building, which is the parking lot right next to the street. We should have the door on that side propped open and marked with a sign for the party.
This is a potluck, so please bring food and beer to share with your fellow homebrewers. All ages are welcome, but obviously only 21+ year olds can drink alcohol. We will also setup power strips etc in case anyone wants to bring crockpots to keep dishes warm.
Lastly, once again this year we will be doing the Q4 SOQ judging at the holiday party by popular vote! This SOQ category is Old Ales/Stock Ales/Winter Warmers. We will have the tap board setup along with a couple of other picnic taps, but since we had such a large number of kegs last year, please bring your own dispensing equipment if you have some. It’s better to have more than we need as opposed to scrambling to be able to serve everyone’s beers. When you arrive, each BAM member will get votes for their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best choices, which you can use to vote for your favorite beers in the competition. This means that the earlier that you arrive to the party with your entry, the greater the chance that you’ll have to get people’s votes. We’ll then tally the results up around 5p, and the winners will receive gift certificates for Oak Barrel.
If you have any questions about the party, food, drink, or the competition, please let any of the other officers know. We hope to see everyone there!
