We've held multiple club meetings at the Library Pub, but this will be our first club competition hosted by them.  We will be in the relatively new "Reading Room" which was added during the expansion several months back.  If you haven't been there since the expansion, you're in for a surprise.

The style for the RRBC members only competition for this meeting is English Pale Ale.  There is also a Best Damn Beer (any style) competition that members and non-members alike are welcome to enter.  As usual, the members only style competition awards prizes whereas the Best Damn Beer competition is merely for bragging rights.  The Library Pub does not serve food but it does welcome you to bring/order food in.

Now that Extreme Beerfest is over, be sure to let your liver rest up in time for our first club competition of 2014!!  Once again, we will be at Blatt Beer & Table in conjunction with the Union Pacific Ties social club.  Our previous two events with them were extremely successful and we had an very high turnout from both our club as well as the UP Ties. 

The styles for the RRBC members' style competition for this meeting are Scottish and Irish Ales.  There is also a Best Damn Beer (any style) competition that anyone and everyone is welcome to enter.  As usual, the members' style competition awards prizes whereas the Best Damn Beer competition is merely for bragging rights.  As there will be MANY people at this event, please bring at least a 64oz of each entry.  There will be food, so be sure to come hungry as well!

Note: If you plan to attend this event, please sign up here.  The UP Ties Social Group needs to have an idea of how much food they need to order AND we need to adhere to NLCC rules and regulations by having a guest list of people that will partake in our beer.
