Everyone who attends will get a poker chip to vote for their favorite beer. Guests’ votes are worth one point and brewers’ votes are worth three points with brewers being disallowed from voting for their own beer. The winner will receive a Great Fermentations gift card.

THC Holiday Party

Our THC Holiday party will be on January 18th, from 6 p.m. to 9 pm. upstairs at LBC. Appetizers will be provided by LBC.

Bring beers to share as we do in the open tasting part of our regular meetings.

This year, we have a fair amount of extra hops and malt, so some door prizes will be awarded. And of course, we will have the bottle exchange. This is how it works:

1.) Bring up to 4 (12 oz). bottles of your homebrewed creations. You can bring larger bottles, but you may end up exchanging your bomber for a 12 oz. bottle.
2.)For each bottle you will get a ticket.
3.) When one of your ticket numbers is called, you can go up and select a bottle of one of the beverages on the table.This is a great way to try other styles, and the products of other brewers, and a THC tradition.

We hope to see you there.
