Social Gathering at Dangerous Man Brewing
We have an informal meet and greet with the folks at Dangerous Man.
We will talk about the business aspects of opening a brewery and all of the things that come with making that happen.
We'll also discuss the beers that will be available on tap that evening.
All will be done in an informal and relaxed setting.
This is NOT a formal MHBA meeting.
There is no food available at the pub so please let everyone know that
they are allowed to bring food or they can order a pizza to be delivered.
The date is Wednesday, May 22nd and the time is set to start at 6:00 pm and go until whenever.
The address is:
Dangerous Man Brewing
1300 2nd Street NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413

Please join us on Saturday, June 8th, for another meeting at Lift Bridge Brewery. They are located at 1900 Tower Drive, Stillwater, MN. The meeting will be running 11:30am till 1:30 pm. They had mentioned they may
give us some space due to the fact the taproom will be open at noon.
More details to come. Beer, ciders and mead are welcome. This was a
fairly popular event last year. Bring a friend and show someone how
great this hobby is! Cheers.
Back by popular demand, the 2013 version of Sinning With the Saints!
Monday, June 10th, the MN Homebrewers Association will once again stake a claim to tailgating spot #5 in Midway Stadium's parking lot for grilling, chilling, and swilling from 4:00 until 11:00. At 7:00, some attendees might even take their tickets and enter the stadium to harass the players from Fargo-Moorhead, harass the mascot, and harass each other. At least twice in years past we've had club members on the field for between-inning nonsense--some as cross-dressers, some with root beer as shampoo!
There will be tables and chairs provided by the club. I'll need two volunteers (or just Bob Norman, with his TEXAS-SIZED CONTRAPTION!) to bring grills. You'll bring meat and some food to share (and homebrew, of course). The club will provide napkins, plasticware, and condiments.
Tickets are $12 each, and children aged three and over should have one. The first order of business is to e-mail me at email@example.com
to let me know that you're claiming a certain number of tickets. Then please send a check, PAYABLE to MHBA, to
1015 Parker Ave
Attendees NEED NOT be members. There are usually many spouses, kids, and extended friends/families in attendance.
Please let me know that you're attending SOOOOONER, rather than after I've had to once again panic that we have four times the tickets we need, then send in your checks, then plan a dish to share, then brew some beer to bring . . .
MHBA's calendar is now in Google Calendar. Contact the Webmaster from the Leadership page to add/change events.
Hey there, just wanted to remind everyone about the club library. It doesn't always have the greatest presence @ our meetings, but it is worth noting that it is full of resources for new and experienced brewers alike.
Club T-shirts, long sleeve shirts, and other merchandise is now available at http://www.cafepress.com/mhba. Be stylish in your MHBA wear - buy today!
Stay tuned for details on future BJCP classes.
On October 14, 1978, President Carter signed House Resolution 1337. Senate Amendment 3534 to that resolution called for equal treatment of home beer brewers and home winemakers. This law allowed that brewing up to 100 gallons per adult or up to 200 gallons per household per year was permitted for home use. The amendment was proposed by Senator Cranston of California, Senator Schmitt of New Mexico, Senator Bumpers of Arkansas and Senator Gravel of Alaska. Read more
