Holiday Party

Our Holiday Party is January 18th at the German Club in Brownstown. Please RSVP here by January 14th.

Food: Potluck style. Club is getting BBQ as the main course. Please bring a side and/or desert.

Beer: we’ll have the jockey box going so bring a keg if you’d like. Feel free to bring any other sort of homebrew or commercial beer. This is usually a pretty awesome bottle share opportunity so check those beer cellars! (optional, but encouraged)

Pick 6 Mixer: bring a six pack of commercial craft beer and we’ll draw cards so you can create a new mix six pack. (optional)

Gift Exchange: Bring a homebrew themed gift, $20-$30, and we’ll do a fun gift exchange. (optional)

Superbowl Squares: There’ll be Superbowl squares for sale at the party!
