This month’s meeting is at our regularly scheduled time and place (Atlas Pub at 7:30PM), but we are also having our annual elections. The club will be buying some platters of food as a thank you to everyone that shows up to vote.
You do not need to be a dues-paying member to attend the meeting.
We will also be judging the Brewer’s Duel using hot pepper.
Its that time again, time for another group brew!

This time around we will be doing a special brew day with 100 different types of hops! Those who come to the brew are each designated one bottle once its all done and of course pick through some interesting hops that remain to take home; those who come to bottling day will also be designated one bottle. What will this taste like? Only one way to find out!
Group Brew at Craig’s house (please RSVP on facebook for address details) or email email@example.com. We will send out the address Saturday night.
Here’s our recipe:

Our March 19th meeting will be at our usual spot. We have some exciting stuff this month, so do your best to attend.
Agenda for the March Meeting:
- Nominations for officers (elections in April)
- Kombucha Q&A with a professional kombucha maker. Please comment on Facebook or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like a free scoby, and comment if you have any topics you’d like to cover.
- Brewery Bus Trip on April 7th (tell your friends to buy tickets!)
- Group brew – 100 Hop IPA – scheduling and hop discussion
- National Homebrew Competition submission period – shipping & drop-offs start 3/19. Kendall will be driving submissions out to Fifth Hammer Brewing if you want to avoid shipping.
Tickets are available now for all dues paying members for the April 7th Brewery Bus Tour. Those lucky folks have one week head start before they become available to the non dues member public. Just one of the perks to always being a dues paying member!
Tickets will be open to the public on Thursday March 1st at Noon.
This year we will be traveling to Brix City, Fort Nonsense, Manskirt and Czig Meister.
Your ticket includes the bus fare, a tour at each brewery and non-alcoholic drinks for the bus ride. We will also have some free beer, as we always do.
Here’s a summary of the day:
Depart Jersey City @ 11:30AM
Fort Nonsense Brewing Company
Czig Meister Brewing
Brix City Brewing
Arrive back in Jersey City @ 8PM
Don’t forget that our meetings are now on the 3rd MONDAY of each month at Atlas Pub (by the Grove St PATH). This month we’re going to discuss our upcoming Brewery Bus Trip on April 8th (member pre-sale starts this week). We’ll also talk about upcoming homebrew events like this weekend’s Fermentation Festival. This month we’ll also finally judge the Scotch Ales brewed for the Brewer’s Duel!
Poll for our April 7th Brewery Bus Trip! All of these breweries are on approximately the same route, so the travel time will be the same regardless. Now we need member feedback on where the club should visit. Also note that Czig Meister and Manskirt are across the street from each other.

The Jersey City Brew Club is having our holiday party on Friday 12/15, starting at 7PM! We’re going to have a fun night of food and drinks with friends and brewers. Even if you’ve never come to a meeting before, you are welcome to join us to make some new friends and try some great homebrew.
Feel free to bring along any brews you want to share – food dishes are welcome too! The party will be at a club member’s house by Journal Square Square – by the intersection of Vroom St and Summit Ave. For the exact address, please join the JCBC Facebook Group, or email us at email@example.com.
This month’s meeting has been moved to MONDAY instead of our usual Wednesday meeting. We may be moving our meetings permanently as we are finding it difficult to find space on Wednesdays now. Please attend the meeting to provide feedback.
At this month’s meeting we’ll also be taking a vote on our club’s next brewery bus trip which will be in the early Spring 2018.
For this month’s Brewer Duel we have two duels that will be judged – Wee Heavy (Eduard vs Kendall) and IPA (Mike vs Kyle). Should be a fun meeting, so make your way over to Atlas Public House!
