August 2022 Club Meeting

Hello fellow Homebrewers. We have many exciting events coming up in the near future. First on the list is our largest event, SWIRCA, which will be taking place on September 17th. Dwayne Delaney will be in charge of the organization of this event. If you are or plan on serving at this event you will need to bring a copy of your servers license and ID to our next meeting or find a way to submit a copy to Dwayne. This Wednesday we will talk about Smash beer and Oktoberfest/Marzen beer. Like one wort many brews we will be having a contest at our September meeting based on your favorite Smash beer and a contest at our October meeting based on your favorite Oktoberfest/Marzen beer. This year’s BIG TURKEY selection is in honor of Glen Wrinkles. Glen was a dedicated member to our club and a previous Big Turkey winner. He passed last December. In honor of him we have selected his favorite beer, Kolsch, to be the 2022 Big Turkey selection. I will be brewing Glen’s Kolsch recipe in honor of him. That being said get those recipes dialed in and let the best Kolsch win. Also please bring canned goods to donate and any homebrew that you want to share. I’m very excited to try all those delicious homebrews and speak with all you fine club members and guest!!!! See you then!!!

  Hello fellow OVHA members. This year’s club picnic will be taking place at JIAR lake. It is a privately owned lake that has swimming, fishing, and even camping for those that want to stay the night. All tent camping is welcome and a limit of 2 small campers. The club will provide the main dish and you members bring the sides. The address you want to GPS is 4833 Jockey rd. Tennyson IN 47637. The address will get you close to the main turn in but isn’t the location of the picnic. There will be a sign to point you in the right direction from the address given. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting your families, if I haven’t already done so. Everyone have a wonderful OVHA day.
