Join the DC Homebrewers for their October meeting at Iron Horse in Chinatown! From an email:
This is our meeting focused on welcoming new members. That means everyone should come! If you're on the email list and have been seeking the right time to finally show your face, join us in October! If you have friends who might be interested in the club, invite them! If you already come every month, don't miss this one!
If this is your first meeting, our meetings typically go like this: Please buy stuff (food/beer) from our hosts for the first 30 minutes or so of the meeting until we make announcements, and then we'll open up the homebrews. Please do not bring in outside commercial beer or food, and please tip your servers. Most people bring anywhere from two bottles to a growler of homebrew to the meetings. But even if you don't have beer that's ready to bring this time, you're welcome to come. Once homebrew tasting is open, it's pretty casual -- just meet and greet and sip. If you have specific questions about brewing or about your beer, just ask! Members are glad to give feedback and suggestions. We have many BJCP judges among the membership if you're looking for a critical evaluation as well.
