Many thanks to BURP's newest Grand Master Beer Judge Tom Cannon for writing the July meeting report. I wonder if you can get additional BJCP service points by writing meeting reports? Thanks also to Prosperity Minister Dan Fapp for his excellent article on the beer scene in Las Vegas. The second part of Dan's report will appear in the September issue of BURP News.
One of my favorite events, MASHOUT, is coming up fast. I love both beer and camping (as well as live music, good food, and socializing), and there's no better way to bring all of these together. Many thanks to all of those who have worked hard to make this event happen.
And the fun goes on. In September, we'll have another beer campout with the BURP Oktoberfest. This is always
a blast as well. I can't wait to try the homebrewed Alt and Koelsch beers in the ALTercation competition.
As the summer winds down, Wendy and I are thinking about the upcoming brewing season. We never quite got around to brewing a Baltic Porter for October, but we'll definitely be making some beer for the Real Ale Competition in November. We also hope to brew a holiday beer and one or more Belgian ales for winter.
I look forward to seeing many of you on Popenoe's Mountain next week.
The BURP Doxology
Praise BURP from whom beer blessings flow, Praise BURP ye brewers here below, Praise BURP above ye heavenly hosts, Praise barley, hops and yeast the most Aaaaaaaaaaa, Drink! (Al Lowry, 1994)
