With the release of Boulevard's Chocolate Ale today, our President, Steve Cook has cooked up a plan to honor an local airman, Ryan, who is on his way back from Afghanistan in the coming days. Ryan asked his wife for one thing for Valentine's Day: a single bottle of Chocolate Ale. (In case you aren't from here - it's pure craziness to find just one bottle.)
In response, the Kansas City Bier Meisters are out scouring the city to try and get this man a full case of Chocolate Ale. Steve has bought him and his wife tickets to our Spiegelau tasting and our beer pairing banquet. We will have a special reception for him at our banquet.
We are also holding a virtual food drive for the area's only food bank, Harvester's. We have set it up as a state rivarly - Missouri vs Kansas. If you want more info about that, visit http://mashingformeals.harvesters.org
I just wanted to take the time to brag on my homebrew club. I am so proud to be a part of a group that not only brews great beer, but can pull together in a moments notice to do literally anything, especially something as cool as this. It is simply amazing what the homebrew community can do.
