The MHBA had out annual business meeting this past Tuesday, March 6th at Summit Brewing. On top electing officers for the next year, there was a fantastic opportunity to experience twelve different beer off-flavors through the use of an off-flavor sensory evaluation kit the club purchased. Dave Matson and John Longballa spearheaded the tasting with people providing great information about each of the samples and how they occur. Finishing up the evening, club friend, homebrewer and Summit employee Amanda Kutzke gave a great tour of the Summit facility!
Other items of note, John Longballa showed off the brand new limited edition club logo pint glasses. If you are a dues-paid club member and didn’t get one at Summit, show up at an upcoming meeting and ask a club officer.
First round judging for the National Homebrew Competition is happening at Summit Brewing in early April on the 13th and 14th. If you are interested in helping out, there is more information available on the competition website.
It may seem like a long way off but it’s time to get your tickets to our annual Sinning with the Saints outing to CHS field in St Paul! The date is set for June 11th and it’s sure to be an awesome time!
Our next club meeting is on April 10th at Allow Brewing in Coon Rapids.
