PS – If anyone is interested in hosting/co-hosting a Holiday Party, however…
PPS – Just let Kendall know or post on the Facebook Group Page.
Among other things, we’ll be discussing our upcoming brewery tour to the Hudson Valley. Please stop by to give your input, as we nearly have things finalized.

Due to unforeseen circumstances at Departed Soles Brewery, this month’s JCBC meeting (Wednesday 8/19) will be at HopsScotch Bar. We will be back at Departed Soles next month.

Beer writer John Holl (All About Beer Magazine, American Craft beer Cookbook, and more) will be speaking to us during this meeting and sharing some brews. John gets beer mailed to him from all over the world and has traveled to loads of breweries around the planet. He’ll talk to us about the route he’s taken to get to this position, and he’ll be open to any questions you might have.
Also, Departed Soles doesn’t have food, so we’ll be getting some pizza delivered. Bring a few bucks to chip in if you want to eat.
