Style of the Month
Below are the style of the month plans for club meetings including plans for each Best of Meeting competition. If you would like to host a commercial tasting for any given month, contact Dean Sussman at [email protected] to volunteer. Months that have club parties ( holiday and summer ) do not have a style of the month as there is no meeting.

*The club’s summer party will be held in July 2023. All styles welcome. No styles of the month will be designated.
**The club’s holiday party will be held in December 2022. All styles welcome. No styles of the month will be designated.
***Volunteers for commercial tastings are encouraged to interpret the categories broadly. For example, for the “Czech Lager” category, the beers need not be produced in the Czech Republic; an American-made “Czech-style pilsner” beer would be an excellent choice. In addition, the club strongly encourages volunteers for commercial tastings to offer samples from (and support!) our local breweries.
