Club Untappd account

We now have a club-managed Untappd account for beer festivals. There was kind of a hodgepodge of BCB accounts on Untappd; festival goers had created three or four different BCB accounts and several different beers, mostly with incorrect names and specs.

I managed to get them all consolidated, and I’ve got it set up to where only the current festival’s beers are searchable.

Go check it out at www.untappd.com/bluffcitybrewers. It appears that Nick has already put a dent in the batch of hefeweizen that he’s supposed to be bringing to Art on Tap.

June/July Upcoming Events

June 19: Club meeting, 7:00 at Central BBQ on Summer. Bring the beers you made at Bosco’s or Bernoulli Brew Werks on National Homebrew Day for the Best of the Bluff competition!

June 28: Brew day/pool party at Richard’s. Details TBA at the club meeting, so make sure you’re there!

The inaugural Tennessee State Fair Homebrew Competition is now accepting entries. Have ‘em in the system by July 18; bottles must arrive in Nashville between July 28 and August 1. Entries are 7 bucks each and can be loaded here: http://tsf.fairmanager.com/

Finally, the Best of the Bluff for July will be “lawnmower beers.” Any style is okay as long as it’s something you’d want to drink on a hot day after mowing the lawn. Go ahead and start planning and brewing these now!

Welcome to our new communications officer – Adam Steele!

Hi everyone!

 

This will be my last post as communications officer as we transition the duties to the newly elected Adam Steele!  Congrats Adam on defeating Nick Vincent in a special election at our last meeting.

 

You can still get in touch with your friendly comm officer by emailing communications at bluffcitybrewers.com, so the transition should be smooth for all of you.

 

I’m sorry to be leaving the club, it’s not because I don’t love it but I am moving away from Memphis next month and won’t be very effective as a communications officer anymore!

 

Best of luck and keep up the great brewing!

Nate
