Hey Homebrewers! The next Nevada Homebrewers’ Club meeting will be at the new brew pub St. James Brasserie, at 901 South Center St.
Meet there at 8 p.m. (semi-sharp) for the tour. We will be congregating after the tour. According to the brewmaster, the tour takes about an hour. We will have a table reserved for us for after the tour. They’re pretty booked up, hence the need for reservations. Sorry it took so long to get the plans made: My bad. Also, I (Wheeler) won’t be at the meeting: With the election, it’s all hands on deck for the election, for I’m working until at least midnight handling election results for Wednesday’s (Carson City) newspaper.

David talked to the owner. I’ll just quote David, from his email:

“(One of the owners) was really excited about possibly doing some collaborations with the club and allowing us to have meetings there. He was alright with us bringing homebrew and talking to the brewers there and mentioned if we brought a beer that he liked it he would try to put it on tap and sell it there.”
