Hey all, just a quick update to the October meeting details.
The meeting will still be tonight, however instead of the Scioto Downs Clubhouse, the meeting has been moved to inside of the Brew Brothers taproom. The raised seating area has been reserved for us, so head there tonight when you arrive.
All other details will remain more or less the same.

SODZ Monthly Meeting
SODZ is back for our October meeting, and you won’t want to miss this one if you’re studying for a BJCP exam or a Cicerone exam. This meeting will feature an off flavor tasting, with beer provided by The Brew Brothers.

The Brew Brothers at Eldorado Scioto Downs
6000 S High St
Columbus, OH 43207
- Officer Report
- Off Flavor Tasting and Discussion
Fall Beers – This is a thematic based around fall. What does this mean? Well you could enter a Oktoberfest (3b) a pumpkin beer (21A) a Belgian Fall Saison, a Belgian Pale that evokes feelings of fall. The theme is fall and you can make that work however you want.
SODZ Monthly Meeting
SODZ is back in session after our summer break. Join us in September for the first monthly meeting since June.

TBD – Most likely open to all BJCP styles, waiting for confirmation.
The Iron Kettle competition results are as follows. The secret ingredient was Smoked Malt.
- Stacy Groene – Smoked Brown Ale
- Will Shiel – Smoked Helles
- Steve Henry – Classic Rauchbier
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.
Sunday, August 14th 2016
Be ready to leave Land Grant at 11:30 AM
Meet at Land Grant Brewing Company, bike to Sideswipe Brewing and then back to Land Grant after a beer or two (or three).

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.
The SODZ summer picnic is coming up this Saturday.
For more details, see the previous post here.
Don’t miss out, it’s a blast!
Summer Picnic time!
Who is Invited?
Anyone who is a paid member and their immediate family (Significant other Spouse and children).
Saturday, July 23rd 2pm – Sunday July 24th 1pm
If you plan to stay over night be sure you bring a tent or are ok sleeping in your car. The cannery is a business and we need to respect their property.
Glass Rooster Cannery
1673 South State Route 605
Sunbury, Ohio 43074
What to Bring
The club will provide a main course, you will provide a side/desert and any beer you want to share. The location is on a farm with a small pond, a big bonfire ready to go and copious amounts of space to hang out. It’s suggested that you bring any folding chairs, pop up shelters, bug spray, sun tan lotion, plenty of homebrew to share and anything else you require if you are a person who enjoys to sit outside, not on the ground and not in direct sun. If you choose to stay the night there will be a bonfire and much more socializing. In the morning we will do some cleanup and head home.
Iron Kettle Beers
Those who brewed beer at Iron Kettle will be bringing their beer to share and be judged. If you were at Iron Kettle an can’t make it then you will need to make arrangements to have someone else bring your beer.
I can’t stress this enough but if you even think you might be staying the night bring a tent or have the expectation that you will be sleeping in your car. What about bathrooms you may be wondering? The club is renting a port-a-potty and bringing large tanks of water for hand washing and clean up.
Justin Molenaur’s winning recipe from the Elevator Meeting club competition has been brewed and is ready to tap. Join the club on June 30th at 7:00 pm for a get together to try the beer and congratulate Justin!
Please note, the beer will be tapped at the Elevator Restaurant on High Street, not at the taproom on 4th.
