All-Club Camp-Out! Friday, August 6th through Sunday, August 8th. This family-friendly event hosts brewers from any and all homebrew club. This year we gather at Camp Nushka on Cass Lake, Minnesota. The Prairie Homebrewing Companions (PHC) from the Fargo-Moorhead area are the hosts, and will collect $25-40/adult at the camp-out; kids are free. The price includes camping, firewood, outhouse supplies, and a fabulous Saturday feast, cooked and served by the PHC.
You bring a tent or camping trailer, beer, food, beer, chairs, beer, yard games, beer, acoustic instruments (no amplified music allowed), well-behaved dogs, mead, a special sour beer for the Saturday Sour Hour, homebrew for the informal Saturday competition, cider, something for the morning Bloody Bars, and beer. There is no electric or running water, but the PHC will bring some water, and there is a large picnic shelter and two permanent outhouses. Cass Lake is just a few steps down the hill from the remote camping area, which we have to ourselves. The space is very shaded. Jockey boxes will be available for kegs. The road in to the site is great for kids on bikes, and there is a great paved bike trail a few miles from the campsite.
At night, the camp chairs go around the fire, and then the acoustic instruments and special beverages come out to play. Folks show off their beverage finds by passing them around the ring, with each person taking a small taste. Bring many glasses to the fire!
Newcomers are most welcome! Please indicate your intention to attend to John Longballa at [email protected] He’ll get you extra information and will let the PHC know how many to plan for.
Not to be missed!!!
