The Great Northern Brewers Club
The Prez Sez, by Kevin Sobolesky - July, 2016

Greetings brewing friends,

I hope you are all enjoying the summer and taking advantage of our (randomly) good weather. I hope our string of rainy weekends will subside, however, I am realizing that there are perks to working the weekends! Making it out to (a deserted) Exit Glacier on a Tuesday was a thoroughly fun time!

I hope everyone had a good opportunity to enjoy the 4th of July in a fun and safe manner.

As we progress through summer, remember that the Club doesn’t have regular monthly meetings between June and August. Rather, we gather in alternate outdoor locations to capitalize on glorious Alaska sunshine. Our next regularly scheduled meeting will be in September, but a bunch of events between now and then bait you and your homebrew to show up for and participate in. And, nothing’s stopping you from hosting a club event of your own. If interested in hosting some sort of homebrew gig, just shoot me or one of the board members or officers an email and we’ll help you get it set up.

Seeing as it’s BBQ season, one would be remiss to miss out on the Loughrey’s BBQ coming up on the 12th. Thanks to our hosts for providing such a lovely venue to enjoy a family friendly fun time. If the past “rain on the weekends” trend continues, that Tuesday should be a great time to enjoy the BBQ.

Our Summer campout will be at the Eklutna Lake Campground this year. We’ll be at the large group campsite. See Kat’s article on the details and be prepared to enjoy a fun weekend.

If you didn’t make it to the Hall’s for the June BBQ or participate in the Alaska Run for Women, I hope you can attend our upcoming events! See the appropriate articles for details.

Get your calendar out. Upcoming events include the July 12th - Loughrey’s BBQ, the ET Barnette Homebrew Competition in Fox on July 16, the August 5th Campout at Eklutna and the September 20th GNBC meeting at 49th State Brewing Company in Anchorage and the Anchortown Invitational Homebrew Competition on October 23. Plan on attending all of these events and show your support for our great homebrew club.

-Prez "Unrelatable" Kevin
