March Meeting and Elections at Pet Shop Bar

Our club’s March meeting will be at Pet Shop bar on the corner of Jersey Ave and Newark Ave. We’re excited to have our meeting at a new spot and we think everyone will enjoy this great bar. They’ve got a good selection of craft beer and a vegetarian menu.

We are also holding elections this month, so please do your best to attend!

Additionally, the March meeting will have two Brewer Duels being judged by the club, as last month’s was postponed due to a car accident. The pineapple beer challenge will be followed by the lobster beer challenge. Yum!

JCBC Winter Party Jan 21! Homebrew! Food! Games!

Please RSVP today, so we get an idea of how much beer/wine/food everyone plans to bring.

Our party will be held January 21st starting at 6PM at Merseles Studios (339 Newark Ave, Jersey City). The invitation is open to the public, so please bring friends and family, or tell your neighbors that may be interested in homebrew. The club will be serving its bourbon barrel-aged stout and barrel-aged saison, as well as any drinks members bring.

For food we are doing a potluck, so if you don’t have any drinks, you can bring along something tasty.

We also plan on having some games and other activities. Hope to see you there!

RSVP: https://jcbcwinter.eventbrite.com

And don’t forget, we will be having our January meeting at HopsScotch Bar & Grill on January 18th at 7:30PM.

November Meeting – a homebrew challenge!

This month’s meeting will be in our regular spot (HopsScotch Bar), at the regular time (Wednesday, Nov 16 at 7:30pm). We hope you can join us!

This month we’re going to start out inaugural Monthly Brewer’s Duel, where members can participate in a challenge to brew using different ingredients, styles, recipes, or techniques. The contestants will be judged in a blind taste test in later meetings, and the winners will receive gift cards and beer from The Thirsty Quaker.

We’re also going to plan our Winter party, our next Brewery Bus Trip, and Bruce should have some bottles of the Jersey City Brew Club – Departed Soles collaboration beer that won first place in the Experimental Category at Motown Mash!

Jockey Box available

The JCBC is now renting its jockey box. It is a multi-tap system that can handle several kegs at once. We are asking $30 a day with a $10 cleaning fee – this is a real bargain compared to other businesses offering comparable equipment. Availability begins in mid-October.
