June Homebrew Club Meeting 2024

The June 2024 Brewers Anonymous Member’s meeting was held on Friday, June 21st at Home State Brewing Company.

The meeting started with a recap of the 2024 club goals. Four of the six recorded goals have been met for the year as of June, and one is in process. There is only one goal left to complete our list! Thanks to everyone’s efforts for getting us this far so quickly.

The goals listed for 2024 are as follows:

Grow the Club ✔
More Education (big checkmark coming soon)
More Collabs
More Festivals ✔
Attend More Award Ceremonies ✔
Try Brewing New Styles ✔

We distributed the medals to our Hogtown Brew-off winners. Our club had 16 medals, which made us the third heavy medal club from this year’s Hogtown Brew-off!

We also congratulated our winners from the first round of the National Homebrew Competition. Our club had thirteen winners in this first round and is the largest representation of Florida Homebrew in the final round!

Congratulations to everyone for both Hogtown and NHC, great job!

We recapped the progress on Hot N Humid 2024. Things are proceeding at a fair pace, but as always, more help is welcome to wrap up the event.

We reviewed the dates for the next two competitions: First Coast Cup by CASK and Commander SAAZ. Kenny McChord volunteered to deliver the entries for the First Coast Cup. We still need a volunteer to deliver our entries for Commander SAAZ.

In intra-club IPA Throwdown competition took place at the meeting. There were 12 fantastic entries. The winners of this competition were:

1st Place: Graciany Miranda – Quadruple IPA
2nd Place: Jason Breckling – American IPA
3rd Place: Eric Gomez – Hazy IPA

We announced that we have registered for the 2024 Orlando Beer Fest. The Orlando Beer Fest is one of the biggest festivals in our area, and it’s a great opportunity to expose the club and promote it.

We wrapped up by setting the date for the July meeting on July 19th, 2024, at Home State Brewing Company and updating the club brewer of the year leader board as follows:

Mike Thompson – 82 points
Bill Carley – 62 points
Matt Hunsworth – 53 points.

Thanks to everyone who attended, and see you next month!
