April 2022 Meeting

The SOB’s gathered in their home base of O’Marro’s on 4/20 to imbibe in the only thing appropriate for that day…BEER!  About 7 different homebrewed creations, including Al’s infamous Duck Corn Wine (2008 vintage!), were sampled throughout the meeting and they were all delicious!  Thanks to those who brought some shareables.

Reminder of SOB membership dues approaching in June.  Don’t worry, unlike everything else that’s affected by inflation, your SOB annual membership is still a steal at $20!  Bring your dues to Kurt during the June meeting.

The Green Bay Brewery Tour trip was a success!  The SOB’s had a lot of fun tasting various beers and enjoying tours offered by the local Green Bay area breweries.  The club is looking to do another similar brewery tour trip in the fall.  This time we’re thinking about touring the Manitowoc/Sheboygan area.  So stay tuned for more details!

Big Brew Day is coming up on Saturday May 7th!  The club will be able to brew at The Cellar (back portion of the parking lot).  Also, we have the Ginger German Gastro food truck lined up to attend and keep you SOB’s from going hungry!  Even if you’re not planning to brew, come over and hang out with your favorite SOB’s.  If you plan to attend, we would appreciate you signing up HERE.

Message from our club President, Scott:
Regarding the upcoming Brews on the Bay beer garden events at Menomonee Park, as a club we have been looking forward with excitement to participate once again, as last year our booth proved not only to be an extremely popular spot at the event, but provided a fun way for our members to promote the club and share the labor of our efforts with the public.  At the end of last year, we were informed by the event director that we would be welcomed back in 2022 in the same capacity.  Unfortunately, we have just been informed today from that same individual, that will no longer be the case.  While the specific reasons were not provided, we were informed that we were welcome to set up a booth, but will no longer be able to hand out homebrew this year.  As a board, we are extremely disappointed in both the decision itself, as well as the timing of that decision.  Given all of this, the club board will circle back and discuss what we may want to do moving forward, and we will have a discussion on this matter at our next general membership meeting.  Thanks for your understanding.

Lastly, here’s a look at our upcoming meeting locations:
April – O’Marro’s
