Sudzers July 2017 meeting notes

In July’s meeting, we welcomed two new members, discussed NCHF, and then tasted twelve delicious brews. Thanks to everyone who showed up!

– Derek W. is accepting 2017 dues. Reach out to him at if you’d like to pay. He also has t-shirts for sale!
– Welcome Christy and Jay to the Sudzers!
– This year’s Northern California Homebrewers Festival (NCHF) is September 15-16. Tickets go on sale Sunday, July 16 at 10:00am and Saturday, July 22 at 10:00am. See for more info. Thanks, Steve C. for volunteering to be the event coordinator!
– Derek sent out a spreadsheet to keep track of who’s going and what everyone’s bringing. Please fill it out if you plan on attending:
– We’re pouring again this year at Hoppy Hour. Last year we went through around 40 gallons of beer, so we need beer! Hoppy Hour beers are typically 6% and less, so start thinking about what you want to brew.
– We’re looking for volunteers to help organize and judge the Santa Clara County Fair Homebrew competition this Summer. Reach out to Steve H. at if you’d like to volunteer. The main judging event is this Saturday, July 15.
