We held our June business meeting at Crazy Jakes on June 25th. Approximately 25 members and guests were present. We welcomed a new member, David.
We recapped our June events, including our social at the new Woodcock Bros location in North Tonawanda and the Brew at the Bison event at Flying Bison, and discussed upcoming events.
For our beer education, Tom Reed presented kveik and provided us with two samples he’d homebrewed at very different temperature conditions.
