Brew Haven Monthly Minutes for 7/25

Brew haven meeting minutes for Wednesday July 25.


Suggestions on beer calendar to make it more refined and to include unique talk on particular style including BJCP guidelines.

Issac Suggested to record meeting minutes and post them on fb and site

We all agreed that if you have an idea for an event, process, etc. run it by the club at a meeting and then run with it.

  •  A great example of how well this works is Colin and the homebrew Olympics.

Suggestions to clean up website. 

  •  Removed unused forum and private messages

Recap of the fat orange cat tour.. They are a small brewery that does brew in a bag (BIAB) for all of their in house beers.  It was agreed that small brewery tours definitely relate well to home brewers.
