January 2018


Hoppy 2018 Brewers! The new officer board and I are getting everything up and running for the year, and let me tell you our schedule has a lot of excitement built in! We have decided that we will be doing fewer club events this year as a whole. Instead we will be focusing our efforts on our “own backyard” and doing events that make an impact in our community close to home. We will also pool more resources into club activities such as parties and trips that enhance the member experience and give you a great return on your membership dues. A new calendar will be posted on the saaz webpage as well as handed out at the meeting so everyone has a full calendar for 2018. Happy brewing!



–      Sourcing new CSAAZ medals for the next 4 years to get bulk discount.

–      Brewer of the Year- highest decorated member from circuit comps to be recognized at Chiristmas party.
