January 2016 meeting notes

Hopefully everyone’s recovered from our first meeting of 2016! We saw a lot of new faces and got to drink some great homebrews, a cider, and even a limoncello.

Business:
– Derek took money for club dues. If you weren’t able to pay last night, you’ll be able to pay at any of the future meetings.
– Steve compiled a list of ideas for events and will send out a survey to the mailing-list where you can vote on the events you’d most like to see the Sudzers put on this year.
– No one at the meeting volunteered to brew at Freewheel’s 1st Annual Battle of Brew Clubs on January 24th, so if you’re interested, please speak up! You’ll get to meet members from other clubs, brew, and drink beer! What better way to spend a day?

In all, we had fourteen homebrews, a cider, and a limoncello.
