March 6, 2018 – 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM
The annual MHBA business meeting with Officer elections will happen at Summit Brewing! We will also be pairing this with an opportunity to test your palate against several common brewing off-flavors.
We’ll have socializing until 6:30, and the club is providing pizza. Summit’s amazing beers will be available for purchase, and please remember to tip ridiculously well! Homemade beverages are welcome.
At 6:30 we will have our 2018 business meeting, which includes a treasurer’s report and election of board members. The offices of president, vice-president, treasurer, and secretary are all open, as are two, two-year term at-large positions. Please let president John Longballa know of your interest in running for a position. The club LOVES having new faces and ideas on the board, and there are current board members who are ready to step aside.
At 7:00 we will have an off-flavor seminar, wherein we use a Siebel Institute Flavor kit to doctor some lighter Summit beer. Your pre-seminar study assignment is to familiarize yourself with the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) Beer Faults information.
Join us on Tuesday, March 6th for a private event for mhba members, friends and family Summit Brewing Company in Saint Paul.
April 10, 2018 – 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Join us for our annual MHBA Homebrew Review. This is the event for you to bring out your favorite homebrew and go head-to-head against your fellow club members. Bring something you have been looking for some feedback on, bring your favorite creation or just bring yourself and a tasting glass and try what everyone else is bringing!
This is a closed event for MHBA members, family, and friends, and the taproom (which is normally closed on Tuesdays) will be open JUST FOR US! This is a great event to bring a friend who is contemplating homebrewing or joining the MHBA.
During the event, we can help you with your membership. The first 50 MHBA members in good standing will receive an Alloy Brewing drink token! The new, members-only club logo pint glasses should be available at this event.
The event will happen on April 10th at 6PM at Alloy Brewing Company located at 2700 Coon Rapids Blvd, Coon Rapids, Minnesota 55433

At 4:00 that day, people and families begin chilling, swilling, and grilling in the tailgating lot, located to the east of CHS Field, in the corner of Lafayette and Kellogg.
The club provides the meat and grills, and you provide the beverages and delicious homemade potluck items.
