Had a nice Grodziskie lately?? Always wanted to brew up a Sahti? Now's your chance! With the anticipation of a new set of BJCP guidelines to be introduced in 2015 it is time to brew all of those styles that we could get judged before. New Styles: Gose, Grodziskie, Lichtenainer, Sahti, Kentucky Common, Pre-Prohibition Porter, and yes Black IPA's. Once the guidelines are released we may adjust these categories.

- Bend Beer Bender
Friday, October 2nd – Sunday, October 4th
Host: Kathleen Downey
Carl and Kathleen are coordinating the CBS beer event in Bend October 2, 3, and 4. (Although there won't be any coordinated beer-drinking event on the 4th because your liver will be done with it, except we will drive home via Oakridge and you can join us at Brewers Union.) Mark your calendars, scratch it into your iPhone calendar, get a tattoo with the date. We are working on getting a better rate at a hotel (McMenamins is already full, and the Mill Inn B&B won't return my e-mail or call, so these places are not on the table). Once we have this, info will be e-mailed out. In general, Friday will start sort of 3-ish, will have a couple of brewery tours, possible group beer bike thing, and a dinner. Saturday will be a large handful of breweries, walking between sites, and a dinner. If you have a back-door pass for a Bend brewery (we're not planning to go outside of Bend), and we haven't yet talked with you and taken advantage of who-you-know, do e-mail us. The goal is to see a variety of brewery set-ups, talk with the brewers, drink a mess of beer, and get to hang out with each other.
