Will and Diedra Amaya hosted the May 2024 B.A.S.H. meeting on Sunday the 19th at their Bay Area Brewing in Rockport.

President Jack Heim called the meeting to order, thanked our hosts and welcomed new members Cary and Candy Blocker, Mike and Patti Kneale, Paul and Karen Froeschner and Troy and Jennifer Manago.

Walt Crawford presented the Treasurer’s report. In his secretary’s report, Wild Bill Lehfeld reviewed upcoming meeting hosts and competitions. Our tally of brewing volume for April 2024 was as follows: John Fulton – 5.5 gallons, Wild Bill – 2.5 gallons,

Mike/Paul -- 13 gallons. YTD totals for 2024: Chris Ackman – 2 gallons, Vic Aguilar– 10 gallons, Will Amaya -- 15 gallons, Jason Fransham – 9 gallons, John – 5.5 gallons, Mike Kneale/Paul Froescnher – 13 gallons, Wild Bill – 10 gallons, Tom Ormrod – 10 gallons, Jay Porterfield – 5 gallons. Total for 2024 = 79.5 gallons (452 gallons beer and mead in 2023).

In old business, we were reminded that Big Brew beers will be available at the July meeting. In new business, we discussed the upcoming Corpus Christi Beer Festival on Saturday, May 25. Our club will again be serving bottled and kegged homebrew.

There was no competition this month.

As we enjoyed barbecue from Toscano’s Burgers, BBQ & More food truck we

swilled homebrew including Mike and Paul’s Old Peculier clone and milk stout. Bay Area’s nice selection of drafts was also available and Will supplied one free token for each paid member! Entertainment was provided on the back patio by local musicians.
