ABC Rules Enforcement - According to various mailing lists, ABC has been going after beer club’s hosts’ licenses. By regulating the liquor license, they are racking down and have actually suspended brewpubs licenses for having home brew on the premises. ABC states that home brew may be consumed in a bonafide competition. The board was concerned for Bone Shaker but JJ the owner has talked to the ABC and is fine with our meetings being there.
Misc. - Non-profit status: March 28th, IRS said the club will either wait 90 days if they have enough info or wait 180 days if they don’t have enough info to ok our non-profit status. The state needed a reply of what we would agree to file as that isn’t 501C3, so the board approved of Dagan’s letter in acceptance for 23701G. - Technique Presentaion ideas: Fermentation, What is needed to brew, Off flavor kits, Presidential brewers… - Guest Speaker ideas: Yeast Bay, Sierra Hops… - Beer TV: There was not enough popularity in California for the show so they decided to stay in New York.
The meeting was adjourned at about 8:17 pm.
