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

Greetings, brewers!

Greetings, brewers! Winter is in full swing and the chill can reach your bones if you let it. Thankfully, all the stuffing of thanksgiving will have hopefully acted as a suitable salve for you soul; I know I needed it. As we let the results of our national elections settle in and shake us or excite us, we get to welcome our new leadership for the Great Northern Brewer’s club. Here’s the new lineup:


President: John Trapp

Vice President: Kevin Sobolesky

Treasurer: Samuel Moore

Secretary: Jim O’Toole

Board Members:

Brian Smith

Peter Hall

Mike Fisher

I hope to see you all at the Christmas party at the Zoo on the 10th! Please check out Peter’s article with the details. I’m going as a ghostbuster, who else wants to fill out the roster? I got Spengler covered. He did, for fun, collect spores, mold and fungus

The January meeting is just around the corner, check out the latest article on it and don’t forget to get your TAPS card and volunteer for the Great Alaskan Beer and Barleywine Festival; it’s a sure fire blast and, often, a hootenanny!

The nominations for elections are in and the following will be on the ballot at the November Meeting. If you are interested in nominating yourself, please email me at
