Our October 20th meeting was held at Lion’s Tail Brewing in Neenah.  We started the meeting the only way us SOB’s know how, by sampling beer!  Jeff poured us a sample of a few Oktoberfest beers including Lion’s Tail’s, McFleschman’s and Founder’s throughout the meeting.  It was interesting to see each brewery’s variation of the style!  Thanks Lion’s Tail for hosting!

Scott gave us an update on the 30th SOB Anniversary beers fundraiser.  We’ve received about $1,400 in donations!  We’ll plan to make a donation to the Oshkosh Area Community Pantry and hoping to have a representative from the pantry attend our December meeting for a picture with the donation check.

Speaking of donations, by attending Brews on the Bay, we’re able to donate $300 to the Menominee Park & Zoo Foundation from our collections.  Great job SOB’s by serving your delicious libations!  The club will look to serve again next year so stay tuned as we get closer to summer 2022.

The board is reviewing the possibility of getting Casks & Caskets going again and currently looking for potential venues.  However, if we want to host Casks & Caskets as a club, we need your help!  Volunteers are needed to help organize, brew beer, etc.  If you have interest in participating and helping make this amazing charity event happen, please contact an SOB board member.

Lastly, if anyone is interested in acquiring some homebrewing equipment, we were contacted by someone outside of the club who would like to get rid of some.  The list of equipment she has is as follows:

117 beer bottles
Bottle drying rack
2 kettles (one 2 gallon and one 3 gallon)
5 gallon glass carboy
2 ale pails
Bottle capper and other misc. equipment

If you are interested, please respond to the club email address (realsobs@gmail.com) and we can get you connected to discuss more details.  With that, here’s a look at what the SOB’s have planned for the upcoming months:

November Meeting – Nov. 17 – O’Marro’s
December Meeting – Dec. 15 – Oblio’s
January Meeting (SOB Christmas Party) – Date TBD – Fifth Ward Brewing
