If you are interested in a new t-shirt from the latest batch, they are available at club meetings for $20 each.

He is also continuing his “Brewer’s Spotlight” series. If you want to participate, let him know and he can email you a questionnaire. If you are a current SSOB member, please join our (closed) Facebook group to find out some of the latest fun and see the pictures!

Cellar Master News – Be sure to notify the Cellar Master, Daniel, at the start of the club meeting if you have some homebrew samples to share with the club. And please, bring those homebrew samples to share! Consider if you would like a critical tasting of your brew, with BJCP sheets, and if so, let the Cellar Master know. Be prepared to talk about your beer and details on your process or recipe.
