2019 Spring Beer Tasting on April 13th After the Meeting

Had a good St Patrick's day? Yeah, the snow didn't help - doggone it we had to move it from March to April

The 16th annual beer tasting and competition will take place on April 13th after our membership meeting, and it's time to get prepared. You do not have to compete in the tasting to attend, of course, and can simply enjoy the fun. However, if you are competing, start thinking about your entry now! If you wish to enter the tasting, you should bring 4-6 bottles of your entry. All types of beer, hard cider, malt beverage, near beer, maltini, non-alcoholic beer or malternative are welcome. You can even enter a soda if you'd like to, as you never know what will win. Keep in mind that the Bad Beer Board is also up for grabs.

The party is moving back to its roots this year. Before we had Barn Tasting and Beer Dancing, and before we had hotels and hot tubs, we were at my home in St Anthony. We'll be back there this year. Final details will be in the March newsletter.

It’s Finally Here!!! Axe Throwing on February 9th after our meeting!

Yes, it's true. We are excited to do something truly different after our meeting in February. We'll be at Bad Axe Throwing at 2505 Kennedy Street NE, Suite A, Minneapolis from 5:30 to 8:00pm. Check it out at www.badaxethrowing.com. It really looks like bowling, but with axes!

Axe throwing costs $39.25 per person. You can pay on site by credit card only. If you can't throw, you can come with your throwing friend or partner to watch. Everyone should plan to bring food and beverage, as we are having a pot luck. Please sign up for throwing on the signup sheet on the website so we know how many are coming. Also,

A few rules: no alcohol is allowed, although we will likely go out afterwards at a nearby Pub, and you must wear closed-toed shoes if you are throwing. We'll touch base at the meeting on Saturday, and then head over later.
