Despite his better judgment, Fletty will be hosting a club Mead Day potluck starting at 5 p.m.
Please bring something to share and a chair. Chateau Fletty has limited outdoor seating. Also, please bring your manners.
The club will provide something to grill. Probably brats. If you’re vegan or gluten free, that’s your problem…er…burden…er…wonderful life choice…? Either way, not making tofu dogs or extruded veggie protein.
Spouses are welcome. As are well-behaved children. But, really, leave the kids at home.
Also, the club will be making some traditional mead for mead day. We’ll step through the entire life of the mead and do tastings at each step. When it’s all done, we’ll divide up the bottled mead among all active club members. If you’re interested in participating in this part, email Fletty directly.
And, we’re not kidding about being a respectful guest at Chateau Fletty.
Any help is appreciated and no experience is necessary as there will be hundreds of entries which need to be carefully and lovingly sorted in preparation for judging (Friday, April 13th, and Saturday, April 14th, at Summit Brewing in St. Paul).
Chris Smith, a truly preeminent cider maker, will be talking cider. You will not get a better opportunity to get tips, ask questions, and receive feedback on your ciders. We have several other club members who are experienced cider makers, some of whom have been doing well in major competitions, so there is a lot of knowledge and experience available if you are new to cider or want to get better.
Chris is an extremely knowledgeable brewer as well, so I suspect he’d be happy to answer questions in a wide range of topics. If you need any more incentive to come to the meeting, Scott Kosloski, General Manager of the St Paul store, has offered a special discount of 15% off to club members that night, so start working on your shopping list.
