Business Meeting Minutes July 24th, 2018
We had a good turnout for our July meeting. 20 members attended and we voted in 1 new member.
The Erie County Fair is fast approaching and we need members to help staff a homebrew booth from August 8th through the 19th. Mark Z is kind enough to do all the heavy lifting and sets up the booth. You just need to show up and talk about homebrewing to people or you can do a brew in a bag demo. If you want to brew, please sign up at https://teamup.com/ksmn89oh8qs9gbfv6f so we don’t have time conflicts.
The Dude Hates Cancer is scheduled for Saturday, August 11th from 12pm to 3pm at Resurgence Brewing. The roster for brewing is full so please consider attending if you didn’t get to sign up to brew. More info is at http://buffalo.thedudehatescancer.com/.

A steinbier demo will be taking place on Sunday, August 19th at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village. If you have never seen a steinbier made, it is a sight to behold.
