As usual, a good mix of homebrew styles was available at the July 2017 meeting. Also a discussion of upcoming pouring events.
News for July 2017:
Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival: Sunday September 10. We will need people to help pour and of course beer/cider/mead to serve. This is always a fun time. They are changing it up a bit this year, with the alcohol servers more centrally located within the Fest grounds. More foot traffic for us!
Totally Local VC Homebrew Challenge: Sunday September 24. As we did last year, VIBE is helping Totally Local VC put on a Homebrew Challenge Competition during the Taste of Local Festival. Rather than have clubs pour and win prizes, each homebrewer submits their own single beer for competition in a People’s Choice style contest. There is prize money involved for the winner! If you want to enter, please contact TotallyLocalVC@gmail.com for entry info. We are looking for up to 15 people.
Ventura County Fair Homebrew Competition: Entries July 28 and 29 at the Fair, Judging July 30. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for judging.
