It's time for the annual TRASH holiday party! This year it will be held on Sunday, December 7th in the upstairs ballroom at James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy. The party starts at 5:00 and we have the room booked for the whole evening, so plan to hang around and have a good time with your fellow club members. Bring your significant others and little ones; this event is family friendly.
This is the same venue that just hosted the club's 24th annual competition and awards banquet. They've been very supportive of the local homebrew scene and very generous to us, so please come show them we appreciate it!
There will be a $10 cover fee for the party. Your $10 gets you one draft beer from the ballroom bar, plus house-made chips & dips to snack on. Food can be ordered à la carte from a menu of sandwiches, salads, burgers, appetizers, and wings. Come hungry - James Street makes some pretty good eats at reasonable prices. The ballroom bar will be tended all evening for you to buy additional draft & bottled beer.
As this is a homebrew club meeting, you are encouraged to bring your own homebrew to share. Bottles, growlers, whatever. Get feedback, get critique, get praise. Get into a serious discussion about the differences between WLP002 and Wyeast 1968. Bring out that stuff you've been saving - your 2009 Flanders Red, your 2011 Wee Heavy, that Bourbon Barrel RIS you brewed 18 months ago - as this is the time to celebrate!
Grab Bag: Gift-wrap a special bottle of beer (commercial or homebrew) and bring it to the meeting. We'll have a special table set up for the grab bag bottles. At 7:00 anyone who put one in gets to take one out. Keep your gift wrap anonymous - put who it's from under the wrapping so nobody can see until after the gift has been opened. If you receive a commercial bottle, please don't crack it open until you get home.
Lastly, we will hold an official meeting at 5:45 PM to discuss club business including installation of new club officers. The meeting will last 15-20 minutes after which, party on!
Please RSVP to help us get a head count on the TRASH web site. See you there!
