July 2021 Meeting Minutes

David G. hosted the meeting this month on his patio and provided us with smoked brisket, sides and plenty of snacks. Thanks David for hosting!

Some topics of discussion were:

  • Reaching out to Santa Fe Cider Works about seeing their facility and possibly hosting a meeting. We were planning on having our March 2020 meeting there but that was the first one cancelled due to the pandemic.
  • Doing a walkthrough of Nuckolls Brewing Co, the new brewery opening in the Railyard. I didn’t write down who had the possible connection there (was it Ed?), but it would be fun to see their operation too.
  • Setting up the BJCP sampling meetings. We agreed that doing at least one off-flavor class where we buy a kit would be beneficial. I’ll send out an additional email to see what day of the month works best for the BJCP practices (maybe 2nd Wednesday like the previous years?)
  • Beer style for the October mini club competition is going to be festbier/amber lager. Start thinking up a recipe and get it going so it has plenty of time for lagering and carbonation!

Beers we sampled at the meeting were:

  • Lorrey:  Helles, Tropical Vacation Smooj
  • Brandon:  Barrel-aged Golden Sour,  Scotch style Whisky
  • David: Belgian Wit w/green chile
  • Ed: Wheat Beer, English Old Ale, Irish Red
  • Ken: Pilsner, IPA
  • Eric: Red Ale, Dunkelweizen, Tucher Helles Hefe Weizen, Praga Premium Pils
  • Nathan: Prickly Pear Wheat
