Guild Pot Luck & Celebration

Sunday, October 23rd 1pm to 3pm at Rapp Brewing Company there will be a Homebrew Club of the Year celebratory potluck. Please bring a dish to share. If you are card carrying member you must bring your membership card to receive the special PUB discount in the tasting room, no exceptions.


Also in attendance will be the Homebrew Club of the Year trophy. It has been cleaned up but not yet engraved. In order to preserve the history of the cup winners we are looking at adding 4 new silver plates to the cup in order to refurbish the front and mount all future packards. Feel free to lend suggestions or thoughts as we prepare the cup for the next 15 to 45 years of great homebrew clubs.

With Commander SAAZ in the books we can now look forward to Best Florida Beer. We have the opportunity to capture our first homebrew club of the year title and our second homebrewer of the year so you won’t want to miss the suspense and possible celebration.  The awards night is October 8th, 6pm at Coppertail brewing and everyone is encouraged to wear their best halloween costume! A number of members of the guild are planning to stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in Tampa and UBER to / from the event. We encourage all members to make plans to safely get to and from the event.

BFB can use a few volunteers to help sort and label entries. See the details here. 

If you can judge or steward for BFB please be sure to sign up here.

Because we expect a large number of members to steward, judge and attend BFB the October meeting will be moved to 2pm  Sunday, October 9th at Rapp Brewing.
