Draft club meeting – January 2020

Hello Dayton Draft crew! Our first club meeting of 2020 is tonight, 7pm at Warped Wing. Just a reminder since they are open for business on Mondays now, we will meet in the back private area and must keep our homebrews back there. Members are welcome to visit the open taproom otherwise. We will have a bottle share as well as a short talk on Saison styles of beer and upcoming homebrew events. 🍻 https://facebook.com/events/s/draft-jan-2020-meeting/792006624652957/?ti=icl

DRAFT Night Out – Yellow Springs

Join us July 27th at 4PM in Yellow Springs to show our appreciation for our sponsor of the month for July, Yellow Springs Brewery!
Always creating delicious brews, Yellow springs is one of the larger breweries in the area. Consistently putting out a product that can’t be brewed fast enough due to demand, it’s a wonderful treat to have them as a sponsor for many years now.

BJCP Scoresheets will be available for anyone who wants to do a blind tasting. Compare your scoresheets to ranked judges and see how you stack up.

There will be a food truck. Please check the Facebook event for more information!

Saisonfest 2019

Saisonfest is our annual charity homebrew competition catering to saisons only. This year’s charity is Urban Garden.

Saisonfest is a great chance to brew a unique saison and dabble with farmhouse varieties. From imperial to wild we have a category for all styles of saison! Please consider entering for a great cause or come out and judge and taste some first class saisons from across the nation!

DRAFTernoon Out – The Barrel House

Voted #2 bottle shop in the Dayton area, The Barrel House is a titan in the area known for a superb craft beer selection and extra awesome staff. The Barrel House is DRAFT’s sponsor of the month for April! Our event will coincide with their Rhinegeist Showcase so the taplist is sure to be killer. Also note that this is the afternoon of Saisonfest so come judge a few beers at Branch & Bone then move down Wayne Ave to Barrel House!
BJCP Scoresheets will be available for anyone who wants to do a blind tasting. Compare your scoresheets to ranked judges and see how you stack up.
There are plenty of local food options. Griller B’s, Smokin’ BBQ, Arepas, and Pizza Factory are quick eats with a good selection of items.

DRAFT Tour of Eudora

Niel, the brewmaster at Eudora, has offered to give DRAFT a tour of their new facility. The tour will start at April 4th at 7PM.

Eudora is the sponsor of the month for March and it should be interesting to see how a brewery prepares for and executes such a large expansion in the Dayton area.

Come loaded with questions!

DRAFT Night Out – Eudora

Come out to the next DRAFT Night Out event at Eudora’s new location! The new location has games, food, and of course BEER.

A couple beer scoresheets will be available for a group judging of a beer. You will be able to compare your scores with ranked judges from DRAFT and see how your taste buds are treating you.

This should be a fun one! Let’s show our support for those that support us.

Here is their food menu.


DRAFT Night Out – Branch & Bone

Come on out February 23rd at 6PM with your family, friends, and fellow homebrewers to support our February sponsor, Branch & Bone! They are hosting the Big Beer Bacchanal where they’ll be bringing out some of their biggest beers for one last tapping. Once the kegs are gone, there’s no more of that beer left.

Branch & Bone supported tables at Brewfest as well as hosted one of our meetings last year on short notice so let’s make sure to thank them by drinking all their beer!

As of right now, there is no food truck information available but Branch & Bone welcomes carry-in food. Pizza Factory is right down the street and will deliver to your table.
