June meeting report

Richard swears he didn't just enter a bottle of Pliny
with the label removed. We have our doubts.
It was another great meeting at COOP Aleworks. Patrick and the guys really go all out to help promote homebrewing, and we definitely appreciate their support.

This was our American IPA tasting, and it was our best one yet with over a dozen entries and some really great beer. Congrats to Richard Magann, who took first and third place, in the club competition. And Julie Bennett's hot streak continued with a second place finish.

Ross gave an update on an email that had gone out earlier--he has a line on some 5 gallon oak whiskey barrels from a distillery in Texas. They retail for $89 apiece but, if we can find enough people to buy a whole pallet (27 barrels), then we can get that price down to around $60 apiece (plus shipping). So REB is working with Gail at the Brew Shop to see if we can get enough people together to make this happen. If you are interested, or would like more information, email us at
COOP's Patrick Lively dropped some serious beer knowledge.
Wes gave an update on the REB trip to the Choc Brewery in Krebs. Due to some scheduling issues, the date has been changes to Saturday, July 7th at 11:30 am. He told everyone who wanted to go to RSVP as soon as possible, as he has to have a head count to Choc by next week.  The cost is $25 per person, but that includes the tour, tastings, lunch, a glass and a tshirt.

And last but not least, Gail has secured us two tables at KRXO's Beerfest to be held at Riverwind Casino on August 4th. If you are willing to help pour and/or donate some homebrew, please let us know ASAP. Remember--for this event, you MUST have your homebrew license from the ABLE Commission.  You can download it below.
