Where

Lineage Brewing Company
2971 N High St
Columbus, OH 43202

What

There is no formal agenda. This meeting is a potluck where the club provides the main course and members provide a side or desert. Because the club is providing the main course this meeting is limited to those members in good standing and their +1.

Lineage, is closed to the public and just open for the club event.

Please remember:

  1. Everyone must be 21, no exceptions.
  2. Drinking and driving is a serious and deadly felony. Make appropriate travel arrangements.

Dirty Santa

Dirty Santa is a gift exchange where you bring a large format (750ml or 22oz bomber) bottle of commercial beer and put it inside a gift bag. One person starts by taking a bag off the table that’s not theirs and this continues until everyone has a gift. Basically it’s a white elephant gift exchange but instead of gifting junk you are giving delicious craft beer. The only requirements for this are that you buy a quality beer and bring it concealed in a gift bag.

Club Competition

Christmas/Winter Speciality (21B), Belgian Specialty (16E), Wood Aged (22C), Speciality (23, convince us it’s Christmas).

SODZ Sunday Ride #1

by Administrator

What

It’s a bar crawl, but with bikes! This will be the first SODZ “bike crawl.”

Land Grant –> Sideswipe –> Land Grant

This is a relatively flat ride, almost entirely on the Lower Scioto Greenway trail. The ride is about 5 miles and 30 minutes each way. This will be an easy, beginner ride so the group will go at a moderate pace or that of the slowest rider.

We’ll plan to spend about an hour at Sideswipe, but you’re welcome to stay longer and ride back on your own. Stay as long as you like at Land Grant after the ride back, especially as they usually have a food truck on Sundays.

Bring a lock for your bike if you have one.

When

Sunday, August 14th 2016
Be ready to leave Land Grant at 11:30 AM

Where

Meet at Land Grant Brewing Company, bike to Sideswipe Brewing and then back to Land Grant after a beer or two (or three).

Land Grant Brewing Company
424 West Town Street
Columbus, OH 43215

Gentile’s Homebrew Competition

by Administrator

See the information below about the Gentile’s Homebrew Competition.

There are three days left to enter the Gentile’s Homebrew competition!

Entry for Gentile’s inaugural homebrew competition is open until Friday evening at 10PM, since we’ll be judging them Saturday morning. Entries will be judged in 4 general categories (Hoppy, Lawnmower, Farmhouse, and an open category for anything that doesn’t fit in the other 3). You can enter the competition by dropping off 2 bottles of your beer at the store (1565 King Ave) with completed BJCP bottle IDs (http://www.bjcp.org/docs/SCP_BottleID.pdf), on which the Category should indicate the category you’d like it judged in. The entry fee is only $4 per entry, and will be used to cover costs associated with judging, and the rest will be distributed to winners in the form of store homebrew credit. Prizes will also include various donated items by local breweries.

We will also be looking for judges, especially if there is a late push in entries. If you’d like to help out judging, we will be starting Saturday morning on July 30th, at 9AM, and wrapping up around noon, with lunch provided. Please call the shop at 614-486-3406 to provide your contact information so we can make sure we have judging covered.
