Hi everyone!! We had 50 people at our meeting today! For those of you who could not attend, here are the minutes of today's meeting for your perusal.......


GRAND HYDRO- Drew gave us a mini-version of his fabulous Saison talk he gave at the AHA, complete with samples.

AWARDS PRESENTATION- Congratulations Matt Bourbeau!!! Matt FINALLY got his awards for the 2008 Doug King Memorial for his Oktoberfest Beer and also got his Merlin Cup Award from 2009. Thanks for waiting Matt. John Aitchison was presented his 5 Mayfaire medals. It was also announced that he was runner-up for the Ninkasi Award for the AHA.
