Default we had our first club meeting.

So I just got back from our first club meeting. We had about 25 people show up, we gave away 2X22oz insulated bottle carries filled w/ some great beers (donated by the owner of "The Ale House") we had Pizza (Donated by Ultimate Pizza Co.) Shawn from North Star craft brewery in Shasta Lake showed up and offered up his place for our next meeting on March 7th @ 4:00. We talked about club names and what we all would like to see from this club. It was more of a meet and greet and to introduce ourselves. I shared a little about me and what I can offer to the brewing community.
I will post more on this site about what we all do as a club. If any of you are in this area please feel free to contact me if you would like to hang out and have a brew with me or any of the members. Everyone seemed very genuine as we all know the brewing community is!
It was a GREAT time and I am looking forward to the next meeting!
Cheers
JJ

It's always cool to meet other people interested in brewing. I'm looking forward to future meets, hopefully we'll have an even bigger turnout next time. Let me know when you guys are ready to start selling supplies too.

Justin

Yes there is a class at Shasta. Jeremy from the meeting is teaching the class. I don't know how detailed it is, but it sounds interesting. Ya as far as the brew day goes, I will keep you posted and in the loop.
Cheers
Jay

Ya I guess the first class he put a can of Coopers in water added yeast and called it a day. I am sure there was more to it than that but, you get the jist. Several of the people from the meeting are in his class. I guess Jeremy has a 1 or a 1.5 BBL system in his garage. I am gonna have to see that.
Cheers
JJ

Uhhh I am not sure. But I think that was Shawn (the owner of Northstar Brewery) Jeremy has a lazy eye, a big guy, fairly quiet (unlike me! LOL)

I know shawn. was it a green flannel shirt? He said he bought the equipment from the owner of the old red, white and brew and wants to start a small brewery? I don't know, i came in a few minutes late and missed most of the introductions. That's pretty cool though. I wish there was a class like that when I first got into brewing.
