November’s Guild meeting at the Coll residence was a great time for all. The popular chili cookoff was a hit, with five excellent and unique chilis entered. Thanks to all who attended and entered. The winners went away with some excellent hot sauces and other prizes. We also donated about 20 pounds of food for the ACTS Food Pantry, so thanks to all those who brought canned and boxed food.
It’s that time of year again! 2017 membership renewal has begun! We accept cash or check (made out to Prince William Brewers Guild). If you let Bobby Burris know that you’re planning to renew, he can make sure to have your membership card ready and waiting. This year we’ve implemented a new Membership Agreement, that will be required in order to become a club member. This agreement states that you are responsible for your own actions and the actions of your guests at Guild functions, and you agree not to hold the club liable for your negligence. We will have copies for members to read and sign at each meeting going forward.
UPCOMING MEETINGS AND EVENTS
DEC 17th – At the Powers’ residence. It’s the Winter Seasonal brew contest (Refer to style 30C in the 2015 BJCP guidelines: http://www.bjcp.org/docs/2015_Guidelines_Beer.pdf). Wear a tacky sweater, bring seasonal beers/mead/ciders and we’ll get an update on the PWBG barrel-aging Imperial Stout, which at that time will have been mellowing for about 8 months.
