Friday night is the famous brat cook out with proceeds to benefit the board. We have a few volunteers who'll man the grill and assemble the spread of brats, chips, sauerkraut, deli mustards, and probably some baked beans or similar.

 

Sylva, NC has a nice little German owned microbrewery so, I'm thinking of getting at least one 5 gallon keg of beer ( about 40 16oz glasses) for Friday.

Descriptions can be found here: Beeeeeeeerrrrr!

 

Remember, these are for sale along with the food, please drink responsibly, YMMV, TADT, PTTR, etc lmao.gif

I can't be making decisions like this on a Friday morning as soon as I get to work. My mouth literaly started watering as soon as I started thinking about the brats, kraut, and having to read up on the beer choices. Come on 3:30

I have sampled every one of these blends up at the brewery in Sylva. They are all really, really good but as always I have my favorites. I will chime in once this poll gets down the road a bit. smile.gif

not sure if the "byob na" is a dig on me or if someone wants "na beer". imagine they'd have a bottle or two laying around. personally i never cared much for NA.

No, Brian.

Thought you'd remember from tailgating, I don't drink the real stuff.

In the past, most Friday night dinners have been out of doors and BYOB A or NA was AOK.

Just checking in advance if the same would be OK at a new venue.

BTW, there actually are some that are OK.

And, yes, I do know what good brew is like as long ago, in a glaxay far far away, I used to brew 200+ gallons a year. tongue.gif

Tim,

Friday night will be fine to have that. I was mistaken thinking you were talking about Saturday night inside.

 

Nobody is required to drink what they don't want and if it seems like a bad idea, we can skip on this altogether.

The only requirement we have for the BBQ on Friday is no glass near the pool.

Does that mean running & horseplay are okay?

Well, allowing attendees to jump the pool on your KTM... I think we can do that part, but running, maybe not. lmao.gif

Not really, well...

 

Poor student, active local zymurgy association, found out that we could actually produce a good brew, it became almost OCD with a 5 gal. batch fermenting, a 5 gal. batch in second stage fermentation, and case upon case aging in the dark.

Hardest thing to do was come up w/all the bottles.

Eventually friends moved over to the 5 gal metal kegs (ala soda syrup), but I stuck w/ the bottles.

Any evening we went over to friends (most every night dopeslap.gif) you jsut brought a case along. tongue.gif
