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

Why sign up for the club dues full payment plan?

Enjoy the many benefits available to club members on the
full-payment plan. A one time fee of only $50 covers all meetings,

This year members received benefits that totaled well over the dues
amount.  Substantial discounts were provided for the TAP NY
beer fest trip, the Newark Bears baseball outing, the NJ Brewers
Festival, and the Victorian Dinner.  In addition members on the full
pay plan are exempt from the individual meeting beer fee.

Ask club treasurer Brian Lynch, or any Cask Commissioner for the

Home Brew Showdown Results  

Our October meeting featured a battle of home brewing
titans vying for DB15 medals in the Oktoberfest category.  
In a blind taste test the club home brewers once again
proved why they are recognized as some of the very best in
the state.  Every brewer received outstanding scores with
our winners even besting the results from commercial
breweries Magic Hat and Dundee!

The gold medal was awarded to Chris Johnson who
continued his amazing streak of winning in DB15
Showdowns.  The silver medal was won by Dan Hodge,
beer writer and champion home brewer (
read Dan's latest
BeerNexus column).  The bronze medal went to brewing
phenom  Patrick Ford who has won medals in two of his
first three competitions.  

Congratulations to our winners and to all who entered.
