October 2018 Meeting

Our monthly meeting was once again hosted by our friends at Rhythm and Brews in Cambridge.

At this meeting we had an excellent guest presentation from Renée Navarro (@beer_diversity, beer-diversity.com) about diversity in homebrewing, and what we can do as a club and as individuals to encourage diversity in our hobby. Thank you Renée! We are working on a separate blog post recapping and reflecting on Renée’s talk – look forward to that!

Upcoming club events and competition information were provided in announcements as usual (link to slides).

We hope to see everyone out at our next meeting, hosted by the newly minted Guelph Brewery: Fixed Gear!
