We need a date first.
Agreed at this point I'm thinking the dates will either be Sept 21 / 28....I'm hoping not Oct. 5th since I'm tied up that day with another Oktoberfest event!

I'll send LBL a message with some details as well as our event discussion and sign-up sheet so they can get a sense what Hoptoberfest is all about.

I hope we can finalize a date in the next couple of weeks!

My wisdom on this matter says the earlier in September the better because the nights become much cooler later in the month. An earlier date also leaves the possibility of moving it back a week in case of bad weather. I'm hoping for Sept 21.

Agreed! When we will make the call on a date? Towards the end of the August or is that leaving it too late?

I was thinking, since I am brewing today, why don't we choose a date sooner than August 25th that way it'll give people that want to brew some time to both plan and brew a beer? Thoughts?

If I were to call it I'd say September 21 with September 28 as the backup date. How does that sound to those who want to attend?

"Twenty years ago — a time, by the way, that hops such as Simcoe and Citra were already being developed, but weren’t about to find immediate popularity — there wasn’t a brewer on earth who would have gone to the annual Hop Growers of American convention and said, “I’m going to have a beer that we make 4,000 barrels of, one time a year. It flies off the shelf at damn near $20 a six-pack, and you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree.” - Bell’s Brewery Director of Operations John Mallet on the scent of their popular Hopslam.

Cavicchi's sausages are about the only ones we buy because they make gluten free options and are really tasty. Will the Hoptoberfest ones be GF or if not can some of them?

I usually make a salad or desert so I'll see what people are already signed up for and go from there (assuming this happens on a day I can come). Any requests?

:grilling: :cheers:

September 21 will be the date. Let's start promoting the event. Cam is arranging for sausages and talking to some sponsors. Does anyone have a contact for ice?We need about six coolers full.
