June: Belgian Style (BJCP Styles #16, 17 and 18)
August: Specialty Ale (BJCP Style #23). Here is where the fun starts. The American Homebrewers’ Association Club-Only competition is a “specialty/experimental/historical” beer. In other words, anything the far reaches of your imagination can come up with. So this will be your chance to finally brew that one really crazy idea that you’d always wanted to try.
October: Hefeweizen (BJCP Style #15)
December: Those who have a lagering fridge should do a dark lager (BJCP Style #4) to be ready for the AHA’s January club-only competition. Everybody else should brew some kind of Winter Warmer (i.e. imperial stout, barleywine or other malty, high-alcohol type of beer).
4. Our next meeting will be Thursday, May 19th. We should have a location finalized shortly and will let everybody know where the meeting will be.
