SBE January Meeting Announcement

Our first meeting in 2013 will be Wednesday January 2nd at the Stone World Bistro at 6:30pm.  This month we will be trying a new format that was suggested by a member last month – Movie Night!

For the main event we will be viewing the documentary How Beer Saved the World, and will likely end up doing a bit of a Rifftrax impression in the process.  In addition to the movie, we will go over the schedule for the year.

I do not believe we will be participating in the January AHA Club-Only competition, “Un-Session Beers,” which is essentially any beer with an OG greater than 1.040. If you have a beer that you really want to put forward for this, please contact the officers@societyofbarleyengineers.org, otherwise, there are currently no plans for a judging, and the entries are due on the 11th.  The next competition is for Barleywines, with entries due on March 1st, so we will be announcing competition details for the February meeting.

We will, of course, be sharing Homebrew!

Please fill out the RSVP form that will come in a separate e-mail, or access it by clicking here… https://docs.google.com/a/societyofbarleyengineers.org/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0An_TkHiy92madEQ1SVRuMUxjY0M5SWFleWRKZmdZc2c

If you haven’t already paid dues for 2013, please bring $25.
We haven’t set a menu item yet for the group meal, but, as always, it will $13 which includes tax and tip.
