Members of the St. Paul and MHBA clubs:

Key Dates:
Jan. 1-13, entries accepted
Jan. 26-27, judging at the Klub Haus in St. Paul
Jan. 27, “Jamaica in January” themed beer banquet and awards ceremony

Judges and volunteers are pampered with an in-door “Pub Crawl,” a Brewpub Brewers Forum and the opportunity to pre-order growlers from regional brewpubs. It’s a lot of fun, and you can sign up now.

Banquet in the islands
Chef Manfred Krug is going tropical with an island-themed menu this year. “Let’s get together and feel all right” at the “Jamaica in January” banquet on Jan. 27. The cost is $30, and you can sign up now. The complete menu will be posted in the near future.

Special Events
Back by popular demand: the Eis-Anything category with its stained-glass trophy. Put the cold weather to practical use by doing ice versions of your beer, mead or cider creations. Multiple entries allowed. Also back is the New Entrant category. If you haven’t entered a beer contest before, this one is for you.

Everyone is sure to have a nICE time at the Mash-Out 2007.
