This June we are going back to our gracious host, Northern Maverick Brewing Co.. Thanks for hosting us! We request that everyone spend some money to support our wonderful host. Their food is fantastic (try the Jamaican patties), and they have plenty of beer-to-go in their bottle shop!

First time? Read our Monthly Meeting overview!

Bringing Beer to Share: There are usually 40+ people at each meeting so we recommend bringing at least 1L of your beer if you want everyone to try it. If you want detailed feedback on your beer, consider arriving by 7 PM to ensure you get a spot in the Structured Tasting. Don't forget your recipe notes!

Don’t forget to bring your tasting glass!

Presentation: BOTY Winner Panel and Q&A
As you may know, our club is in the midst of a historic run for BOTY's Club of the Year title. This is the first time a club east of Alberta has been in the lead, and what a lead we have! We are excited to have assembled seven of our club's top performing medal winners into an epic Panel Discussion and Q&A.
The Panelists are:
  • Chris Hughes
  • Darrell Kelly
  • Matt King
  • Mark Hubbard
  • Andrew McCready
  • Nick Hodowsky
  • Iain Robertson

We'll begin with a few pre-seeded questions to get everyone's feet wet, then we'll open up for Q&A and discussion.
