November Club Meeting

Thanks to Vince for hosting the club meeting last night, and to everyone who attended. I think we were all very envious of Vince's awesome setup.

November Meeting Agenda

  • Club Competion : Porter - Chance will be compiling results and will post them to the competion page when completed
  • Discussed future club meeting venues - Vince offered to host December, future options TBA
  • Voted on club logo - majority vote for Kris's design
  • Discussed club tasting glass options - majority vote for imprinted glasses to be retained by club members
  • Announced January Club Competition : Winter Warmer [this falls under category 19 - Strong Ale in the BJCP guidelines, but there may be some clarification on the guidelines for the club competition] 

If anyone took pictures, took minutes, or has any other items of business to post here, please send them to and I will post them a.s.a.p.

Update: So, reading the comments, we are categorizing Winter Warmers for the competition under style 21B. Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer if everyone is in agreement. If you google search "winter warmer," it also comes up under category 19.

Indeed.. Vince was a awesome host and we should definitely be thankful for such a great place.. I'm bringing sum snacks to help out next time!!

BTW.. I thought we were doing 21B although some warmers are strong ales that have no spices..

Ed's right, winter warmers are 21B, not 19. Per BJCP, there are no strength/color guidelines, but they are supposed to be spiced (or at least taste like they are).

FYI, BJCP iPhone app is super handy and can be found here:

Thanks again for offering up the place Vince. I will also bring snacks next time and also beer.
Thanks for all the beers, it was great to sample and try to decipher each one.
