Summer Meetings, Portland AHA Conference and Beerstock

The June Meeting is Saturday June 9th from 2-6pm and is hosted by Don and Sarah at their place in Eglon. We will be celebrating Don's 70th birthday and that he was also at the very first WSB meeting 26 years ago. Don still brews on his updated 10 gallon system. Belgian beer styles (homebrew and commercial) are the theme for the meeting and any homebrew is welcomed to share. Don will be cooking up a pork dish and will have some veggie sides. Please bring a potluck dish to share and don't forget your tasting glass. Also the meeting will be outside, so you may want to bring a chair and jacket. The address given is incorrect in the current Newsletter, but will be updated in the upcoming Reminder Newsletter coming out next week.

The AHA Conference in Portland this year takes place from June 28th thru the 30th and the WSB will have a booth on Club Night. Several members will be attending bringing a variety of brews to share with other clubs that Friday night.

The July Meeting is Saturday July 14th from 2-8pm and is hosted by Bruce and Dee at their place near Point No Point. Summer brews (homebrews and commercial) are the theme. This meeting will also be outside, so please bring a chair and jacket, plus a potluck dish to share.

The Bremerton Summer Brew Fest on the boardwalk in Bremerton is July 20th and 21st.

Beerstock will once again be in Orting, but will be delayed a month because of the AHA Conference being so close. The date is August 11th and the theme is "Space, where no beer has gone before". The WSB will have a double booth again and there will be camping.

The August Meeting is Saturday August 25th from 1-10pm and will be hosted by Oggie and Wendy at their place on Erlands Point. The theme will be Meads, Ciders and Wine and there will be a friendly competition for best homemade mead, cider or wine. One bottle of Mead will suffice, but Cider/Wine will probably need 2 22oz bottle or 3 12oz bottles. Oggie will be cooking up some brisket and pork. Please bring your taster glass, homebrews, commercial brews and a potluck dish.

The Q&A Sessions will start again in September. The September Meeting is Friday September 28th from 5-9pm and is hosted by Alan. The theme is Oktoberfest and Marzens. More info on the meetings is in the Newsletter emailed out 8/19.
