July 2024 Club Meeting

SPHBC logo Drinky the Viking.

Not a club member? Not a problem!
Just stop on by. This meeting. Another meeting. Whenever it works for you. Meetings are informal and tend to last about two hours or so.

This meeting: Tuesday, July 16th
Two Steves, Two AHA Meadmakers of the Year*
Steve Fletty and Steve Piatz will be talking about backsweetening and stabilizing meads.  Bring your meads, bring your questions.
(*SPHBC has five AHA Meadmakers of the Year winning seven times going to 2005, btw).

The Minnesota State Fair competion is online! SPHBC typically has a big turnout both submitting entries and help with judging. As of Friday the 12th, they’re over halfway (240 entries) to the cap of 400 paid entries. Get involved on either side of some of the State Fair competition and other local comps, submitting entries as well as stewarding or judging (see Dave’s Club Communique sent to the club email list for local competitions and more information).

Brew for Good registration is up open for the September 10th event and our goal is a half-dozen SPHBC offerings. We can serve bottles as well as kegged to expand our repertoire. Additionally, there will be an “Alpha King” contest featuring Columbus Cryo hops from Yakima Chief Hops. Register here.

The 2024 membership cards are in, and as such, a monthly reminder about 2024 club dues :https://sphbc.org/product/membership-for-2024/

As usual, bring your latest and greatest homebrew, mead, cider, cyser and whatnot for sampling and feedback – bring your notebooks. Leave your ego at home.

Falling Knife Brewing:
783 Harding St NE #100, Minneapolis, MN 55413

We’ll assemble before 7 in the taproom; feel free to support Falling Knife by grabbing a beer beforehand. When we have the group together, we’ll head to the back of the brewery, by the packaging area (Thanks, Tom!)
