Don’t forget to bring a bottle of brew for our beer raffle if you want to get in on the action. The winner of the beer raffle takes home a box of beer.

We are also doing a raffle for beer-related swag. Standard buy-in is $1 per ticket or 3 tickets for $2. Currently we’re raffling pint glasses. After these are gone, we’ll find something else interesting to raffle. This raffle is designed to help raise funds for the club treasury which we use to fund events, activities, outings and club equipment.

If you have a beer that you want reviewed, bring a bottle and submit it to the Judge Dread program and it will be evaluated according to BJCP standards. You’ll get a competition scoresheet with feedback to let you know what you got right and what you missed. This is a good way to find out where your beer stands, and is a great way to improve your brewing.
