our move. Bring a new member to the next meeting, have them

Enjoy the many benefits available to club members on the
full-payment plan. A one time fee of only $65 covers all meetings,

amount. Substantial discounts were provided for the TAP NY

Festival, and the Victorian Dinner. In addition members on the full
pay plan are exempt from the individual meeting beer fee which is
now $10 per person.

| August Meeting Notes
by Dan Hodge
Beers from former Soviet by nations
Members present were:
Dan Hodge, Vince Capano, Dan Soboti, DJ Soboti,
Matt Chuchla, Livingston Hinckley, Glenn DeLuca,
Tom Nooney, Tim Terhune and Tim Terhune.
(Mr. Terhune is listed twice due to his inadvertently being
omitted from the minutes of the July meeting. Giving him
credit for showing up TWICE at the August meeting
should atone for that omission).
Meeting was a tasting of former Soviet bloc beers,
which were merely presented and discussed.
The brews were:
1.Krusovice Imperial Premium 5% ABV Czech Republic
2.Perla Honey Pils 6% Poland
3.Warka Strong Beer (can) 6.5% Poland
4.Zywiec 1881 Porter 9.5% Poland
5.Lomska Dark Lager 6.5% Bulgaria
6.Yarpivo Amber 4.7% Russia
7.Arsenalnoye Extra Lager 7% Russia
8.Baltika Russian Imperial Stout 10% Russia
9.Obolon Premium 5% Ukraine
10.Lvivske 1715 Classic 4.7% Ukraine
Unofficially, the favorites seemed to be Lomska, Warka,
and Baltika, with almost everyone in agreement that the
Perla was terrible.
Beers tasted after the meeting were:
1.Toppling Goliath Dorothy’s New World Lager (can)
provided by Glenn DeLuca
2.Toppling Goliath Tsunami Pale Ale (can)
provided by Glenn DeLuca
3.Young Veteran’s K-Ration Kolsch provided by Dan Hodge
4.Port Brewing Hop 15 provided by Tom Nooney
5.Westbrook Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout

6.Victory Hoppy Quad provided by Vince Capano
7.Tim Terhune’s Pale Ale home-brew
8.Tim Terhune’s Russian Imperial Stout home-brew
9.A can of Carton Brewing’s Monkey Chased the Weasel
Sour Ale provided by Vince Capano. Many attendees were
of the opinion that the monkey actually CAUGHT the
weasel, scaring the piss out of him, and canned the result)
Meeting ended about 6:30pm
