“Holiday Cheese Display”
Tuesday, November 16, at 6:30 PM
The Barrel Room
AleSmith Brewing Co.

Greetings Queso Diego,
As usual we’ll start off at 6:30 with our potluck munchies.
The general meeting will start at 7:00 and we’ll get together and share ideas for centerpieces, displays and presentations made primarily from cheese. You’re encouraged to be creative and make a display using any cheese as well as charcuterie and accompaniments.
We’d love to have you share your ideas for the holidays.
We also have our annual elections this month. The board will present a slate of officers for discussion and approval. We look forward to having everyone join us.
Remember to bring a chair and a coat. It’s getting a little cooler.
Regarding the noise:
I’m sure everyone is aware that the back room can be a bit noisy. They have so much beer to can that they’ve been running 24/7. Peter is aware of the noise.
They are in the process of getting a faster canning line that will be installed a little further away. This should hopefully be done within the next couple of months.
Thanks for putting up with this but it will get better.
This Tuesday we’ll meet at AleSmith in Barrel Room where we normally meet. Social time starts at 6:30 and the meeting will start at 7:00.
Please bring a chair. You may also consider bringing something for the pre-meeting potluck. You can bring homemade beer/cider/mead/wine but no commercial alcohol.
This month, Larry Stein will be doing a presentation “Cheese Classification, How to Taste Cheese”.
We’ll explore the lexicon surrounding cheese descriptors and try several samples.
Hope you’ll join us.
The May meeting will occur on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (May 18th), as usual, at 6:30 pm. The zoom link was sent out to members.
This month’s meeting will be about the versatility of goat cheese! If you can, go buy (or make!) some plain goat cheese to experiment with during our meeting, and think about possible additions. Fresh herbs from the garden? dry herbs from the cupboard? Fruit? Nuts?
Larry will be giving a presentation and we will individually contribute from there.
