Building off Paul's twist on last year's styles meeting where we focused on the beers of a particular region, Joe Woodside and I did a beer run up to the Green Mountain State for a this year's meeting. I'll be teasing you all with the beers we'll be tasting in the run up to the night.

It's a rare Saturday meeting for the PALE ALES! But, it's going to be worth it! Come out for a tour and tasting at the first farmhouse distillery in the New Jersey since Prohibition! This is sure to be a good meeting. In addition to the distillery, there are two other fermentation-based businesses operating at the Farm. Troon Brewery will be open and doing growler fills. Saturdays are a bit too busy for them to commit to a tour of the brewery. But if they can, they will. A visit to the 3rd fermentation-based business is still in the works. I'll update this event when I have that locked down.... See MoreSee Less
We've got another steller brewery sending out a rep to take us through their offerings! Fun fact, our generous host always has a couple Oskar Blues on tap. Come hungry! Friends, family and other beer fans are always welcome.
If you've been around the club more than a short while, you know that Suydam Farms has a long history of supporting us over the years. This is an excellent opportunity to show them how much that means to us all and support a charity that is very close to them. Oh, and there's great beer to be had. I probably should have started with that bit.

The Otter Creek rep totally flaked out on us for tonight. Huge thanks to The Great Joe Bair for lining up a replacement meeting for us on incredibly short notice. We're headed out to perhaps one of the most innovative and ambitious breweries in the State.
