We just had our first meeting of 2014, and there’s a lot going on.    This weekend we have a GBA night at the new Device Brewing in Sacramento.  Friday is the Art of Beer event in Sacramento, and Saturday Lamppost Pizza in Davis is having a tap takeover event.

The club’s hop plots are still going strong.  GBA members are planning to get together to work on the hop plots February 1st, so email the board if interested.  This is a great way to gain experience for anyone interested in growing their own hops, plus when harvest comes you will get some free hops!

We had Dan Scott in attendance to give us a preview of what to expect for Sacramento Beer Week, which runs late February to early March.   There will be many events throughout the week, including Capitol Beer Fest and the Sacramento Brewer’s Showcase.

There are a lot of competitions coming up, including our own Bridging the Gap in April, so get brewing and entering your beers.  We also have World Cup of Beer and the AHA regionals approaching soon.

Hope to see everyone at our next meeting on February 18th.

Ian Elliott, Secretary
