Fall 2016 Parilla-September 11th-Derrick’s House

Happy to announce I will host a fall THC Parilla. We’ll meet 12pm-5pm on Sunday Sept. 11th at my place, (address on Facebook/Mailing List). We’ve done this several times over at Lloyd’s and always have had a good time. The basic idea is to experience a bunch of different grill meats.

Will probably have meat coming of the grill every 45 min or so and just hang out and eat and drink good beer. I have a big weber and also a smoker. Details to follow regarding signup for grill meats.

St. Patrick’s Day event at Lloyd’s-March 19th

Message from Lloyd Chatham:

On Saturday, March 19th from noon to 5 p.m.  I will be hosting a THC meeting at my house in honor of St. Patrick’s day.  I will be serving corned beef and cabbage and vegetables, and Hugh has a leg of lamb he plans to grill at the meeting.  There will be stout available for sampling, as well as other beers brought by members.  You are welcome to brew here that day.  A homebrew meeting is always enhanced by having a few pots boiling away!  You are welcome to bring other food, though that is in no way required.  Just bring yourself, stop by for a few minutes, or a few hours, as you see fit, bring any fermentable you wish to share ( commercial or homebrew ) and join us as we celebrate one of the most beer centric holidays on the calendar, St. Patrick’s Day.  Slainte,

Jan 20 Holiday Party, 6-9pm, LBC

January 20 is the “Holiday get-together” and Beverage Exchange at LBC, 6-9pm.

We scheduled it after the holiday crush this year in the hope that there will be less conflict with everyone’s busy schedules (including LBC’s), and more people will be able to attend. LBC will be providing food for the event, to go along with the fine home brews that we will have to sample.

We will have a beverage exchange again this year, so keep some of your bottled beer, or bottle some from your kegs to take in and exchange for someone else’s fine homebrewed creations. (Max of 4 bottles recommended, unless your beverages are exceptionally wonderful! Then we want it all!). We hope to have some door prizes and a very merry time.

$25 – Limited Access Club Member Price
$35 – Full Access Club Member Price
+$10 – Discounted 2015 THC Membership

Club members may buy two (2) tickets.

So what’s all of this talk about limited vs. full access tickets? Three Floyds was kind enough to reserve seating for us, but their ‘Red Room’ only holds 22 people. For those who are slow to act and miss out on the full access tickets you can still go on the trip with a limited access ticket that requires you to wait in line with the general public for a table. We will attempt to arrive about 20 minutes early so you have a decent chance of getting in at opening. Please note all tickets are non-refundable, this is a rain or shine event, and the average wait at Three Floyds is probably an hour.

Poll for Spring THC bus trip

Ok folks, we would like to know where you would like to go.  Please select your preferred destination.  Final locations for region may vary from the ones listed (except Bloomington).  Bloomington would also require those attending to make sure they have a ticket to the fest, the fees we would collect would be for transportation only.

Where would you prefer the Spring THC bus trip go?
