The cross club picnic has been scheduled for August 19th and will be taking place at Mt. Acadia Neighborhood Park.

Our March general meeting of the year will be on Tuesday, March 19th, 6:30 PM at AleSmith Brewing Company. The meeting will be in the barrel room, which can be accessed through the doors down the hallway to the left of the main bar, just past the restrooms.
The featured presentation will be Hard Cheeses by the club’s founder, Chris Banker. He will be discussing hard (firm) cheeses and how to make and age them. We will also have an introduction to grilled cheese to provide details and ideas for our April grilled cheese meeting.
As always, the meeting will start at 6:30 PM with social time and our amazing potluck filled with cheese and cheesy things brought by all of you to share. Feel free to bring something. We can have homebrew but no commercial beer or wine.
PLEASE, no sharing of food until the table cloths are on the tables at 6:30 PM. At 7:00 PM we will start the formal meeting.
Remember, the weather is a bit cool and the brewery can be chilly so bring a wrap or jacket. Also, bring a chair for maximum comfort. We don’t have access to chairs at the brewery.
