2017 – 2018 Leadership Core
After nominations we performed a quick yay or nay vote to approve the nominees since we had just one per role. The vote was successful and our leadership core is set for the coming year. During the next vote in 2018 the Events Coordinator / “President” and Treasurer position will be available due to term limits. If you are interested in ether position members in good standing should feel free to get involved by assisting with either duty. This will prepare you to hold one of these fun, exciting and important positions.
Events Coordinator / “President” – Paul Sorice
Treasurer – Robert Bandl
Marketing – Lisa Bandl
Secretary – Bob Walker
Competition Coordinator – Chris Mc
We judged all of the Pale Commonwealth style beers this past month as our educational topic. One of our goals was to encourage exploration of uncommon styles and for members to enter the beers in BJCP competition. The results are as follows.
- 1st Steve Wilson – Australian Sparkling
- 2nd – Mike Masut – IPA
- 3rd- Paul Sorice – Australian Sparkling
Chris McAlexander won a gold medal for his Cantaloupe Mead in the National Homebrew competition!
Sunshine Challenge Update
Unfortunately Sunshine Challenge judging was roughly 1/2 completed as of the Awards Brunch. Some results were announced but because we feel that Gold medal winners should not have been announced prior to BOS judging we will not be posting any of the current results until the competition is complete. Medals received will be presented at our July 8th meeting.
Central Florida Homebrewers announced at the brunch that they hope to have final results in about 2 weeks time. We are awaiting a new judging schedule and plan so we can offer assistance or at least get the word out to BJCP judges.
Serving and Fellowship
PUBuild joined the Suncoast Barley Mashers and Special Hopperations at Vetterbrew to serve up a plethora of sour beers. Everything served was simply amazing and we wish we could have shared this great beer sooner.
