The SOB’s gathered at HighHolder Brewing Company, the latest in a fantastic series of new breweries to grace Oshkosh.
No new members in tonight’s meeting.
Theme for the Night
This year we have decided to do a world beer theme for each meeting and tonight is Belgium. More details on that later on in the minutes.
Kurt Weina , our prestigious Treasurer, gave us our financial report.
Travis Sullivan brought an American Pale Ale, which was an all grain recipe brewed the end of January. The beer came in around 6.5% ABV, and had 1 oz Simcoe, 1 oz Centennial, 2oz Bavaria hops, some other hops I didn’t write down (he also mentioned an experimental hops that he couldn’t quite remember). He called this beer ‘More Better’, and I’d have to say that it was definitely More Better than a lot of Pale Ales that I’ve had, and certainly drank easier than a 6.5% beer normally does!
Kurt Weina brought a single malt Vienna Lager, made with Dingman’s Vienna malt, hopped with Saaz hops, and with a dry lager yeast. This was a one-gallon batch size, and he served this in that schnazzy S.O.B. growler that he won at the S.O.B. beer contest.
Jeff Eaton brought a Belgian Golden Strong that he brewed at Lion’s Tail. This beer is called Devil’s Gold and was made in celebration of Lion’s Tail’s 100 beer. Great job Jeff and super-kudos on having your beer on tap locally!
Printed club calendars were made available and is slightly revised from last month. Some highlights:

Chris Mills had volunteered to discuss the style this month. He gave a great historical run down and provided some great information about the regional brews as well as specific breweries. Thanks Chris!!!
