Buffet-style food service will begin at 7:00.

Again this Year: The club is providing a 5-gallon keg of Summit Unchained: Bière de Garde.
What to bring:
Food: The theme is dishes prepared with BEER, so come with a potluck dish to share—also bring copies of the recipe = =, serving utensils, and extension cords (if necessary).A “People’s Choice” award will be given for the best potluck dish with beer as an ingredient. Plates, napkins, and silverware will be provided.
Beer to share: Bring any beer, mead, or cider that you wish to share. There will be a “Peoples Choice” award given for the best beer, mead, or cider. Bottles, growlers, and kegs are welcome, and the club jockey box will be available. Don’t forget a small tasting glass—some plastic glasses will be available in case of emergency.
Beer to exchange: Bring up to 24 bottles to exchange with your fellow homebrewers. Label each bottle with your name, e-mail address, style, and beer name (if it has one). Everyone who participates will draw a number and then select a bottle in order until everyone receives as many bottles as they brought.
Family and Friends: This is a family-friendly event, so bring your significant other, kids, and/or any friends/family that have ever expressed an interest in homebrewing or beer. Just to be clear: you and your guest don’t have to be club members to attend, but we encourage everyone to sign up for 2013 membership to support club activities in the future.
As this is one of the most attended gatherings of the year, it’s a great opportunity to get out and meet your fellow homebrewers. If you have not made it to a meeting or would like to join the club, the Holiday potluck is a perfect chance to try some great homebrew and delicious food, and exchange homebrew with others.
Membership renewal or new member sign-up: If you would like to sign up for or renew a club membership, this is the primary meeting for memberships—Neil Bromenshenkel will be on hand to collect money and hand out your new membership card. We will have pre-printed cards available for current and recently lapsed members—for those who don’t know, those cards are good for a 10 percent discount at local homebrew shops Northern Brewer, Midwest Supply, Brew & Grow, & Still-H2O.
