The July meeting of the First State Brewers was held at the home of Jason Breault.
Brian Light volunteered to host the August meeting. (However since the meeting, Brian had something come up and can’t host. Instead, the August meeting will be held at the home of Joebob Jacobs.)
The September meeting will be held at the How Do You Brew store.
The October meeting will be held at the home of Bill King.
Steve Powell from Argilla Brewing attended and proposed a collaboration brew with a recipe to be designed from a consensus of FSB members on Facebook.
Bill King is a grandfather as of 10:59am July 19th. Congratulations to Bill!
Scott Bieber & Kent Spriggs announced they were asked to participate as novice judges at the Battle of the Brews. (It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it!)

By the way, if you haven’t joined the First State Brewers Facebook Group, you are missing out on a lot of great brewing discussion! We have lots of fun, too! This is different than the Facebook Page we have. The Group allows us to interact with one another. :-)
