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 — the Franklin Food Bank. Oh, and there’s great beer to be had. I probably should have started with that bit.

Long-time member of the Club, Michiel Ultee, passed along the news that he did really well in a couple of homebrew comps.
I’ve had a bit of luck in a couple of area competitions recently. “Mike’s Irish Red Ale” won 2nd place in the Philadelphia “Malt Madness” competition in September, and 3rd place in the Morristown “Motown Mash” competition just last weekend. I tried to post this on the PALE ALES yahoo site, but I don’t think it worked. Is there some other way to do this now? In each case I proudly stated my club affiliation as the PALE ALES. 🙂
For the first time in club history, PALE ALES was represented at the National Homebrew Convention Club Night. Four members loaded up a van with a bunch of kegs and drove to Grand Rapids (and met a 5th member there). Clearly, a good time was had by all. The club owes a huge thanks to everyone that spent their time, energy and money pulling this off — Ryan Hansen, James Manley, Thackman, Dave Rollins and Tim Kowalski.
