In new business, Secretary Wild Bill Lehfeld reported that Tom and Rocky Freund are looking for someone else to store the B.A.S.H. portable 5-tap bar. Jacob Dunson provisionally agreed to store it. Social Director Mary Kay Schultz advised people to stay tuned for an upcoming social at Bowlero. Lazy Beach Brewing is hosting “Dia Del Cubano” on Sunday, July 18th from 3-8 pm. For $20 you get half portions of Cuban sandwiches from Lazy Beach and from two food trucks, plus a pint of “Hot Cubana” beer brewed with our member Paul Holder. We voted on complimentary memberships for Aerodrome Distilling, B&J’s Pizza, Lazy Beach Brewing, Lorelei Brewing and Rebel Toad Brewing.
There was no competition this month. We feasted on B&J’s delicious pizza provided by Paul, washed down with the beers from May’s Big Brew, various homebrews and draft, bottled and canned beers from B&J’s vast selection.
