The Next meeting is December 10th at Mekong.  Homebrew sharing starts at 6:30pm and the meeting starts at 7:00pm.


December's meeting traditionally hosts a big raffle with larger prizes than typical.  This year, we also have acquired a 14 gallon Stainless Steel Conical worth over $1000!  Tickets for this special prize are only $5 and will be on sale from the vice president between now and December.  Or purchase online no later than December 5th!  For this one, you don't have to be present to win.


Board of Directors meeting will be held on November 19th at 7pm.  Location CASK Cafe.


This year's clusterbrew is a little different - check out the rules so you can get your name on the paddle too!


Virginia HomeBrewer's Guild is now forming.  Kick off weekend is November 7-9th.  Follow the action on FacebookSignup to Volunteer!


The 8th Annual Beer Blitz is on December 13th.  This is the competition put on by our friends in Williamsburg / Hampton Roads.  Sign up to volunteer judging / stewarding.  And submit your entries so we can finally take home the BlitzKrieg award!


Water Testing is now available to JRHB Members for only $3!  Bring your sample to any JRHB Meeting.  Note: we are currently testing and posting results for Richmond/Mechanicsville  Municipal Water monthly, so please bring samples from other sources (wells, other jurisdictions, water you have treated somehow, etc.)
