Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Club
Website Calendar Experiencing Technical Difficulties

The club website is currently having problems with the calendar and will continue to do so until it is upgraded (work is in progress).  In the meantime, remember that every third Friday is a joint beer meeting with the Impaling Alers homebrew club at Larry's Brewing Supply.  Wine meetings will be posted on the website and we will make an effort to contact registered members about the event.  As a reminder, don't forget to renew your membership for 2015!



You can also follow our Facebook page that we will try to start using more frequently!


February Beer Meeting

Here's the agenda for this month's Joint BEWBC and Alers meeting:

  • crystal malt tea tasting - yeah, you read that right!  crystal tea tasting extravaganza. But wait, first a bit of tutelage on the topic of crystal malts.  And a highly specialized sheet to take tasting  notes on.
  • style sherpa - Nic Templeton will be presenting wood aged and smoked beers.  Learn about how to balance these beers when brewing and/or aging.
  • brew on the fly (tm) - David Hiatt will be bringing a star-fruit/chicken-broth saison that was dry-radished in the secondary. Kidding.  It will be a great beer and David wants your feedback.
  • general mayhem - announcements, socializing and so on

So come on down w/food and fermented frivolities and let's have a meeting.

When: Friday, February 13th, 19:00 - 21:00

Location: Larry's Brewing Supply

7405 South 212th St # 103, Kent, WA 98032

Club Member Meeting - Feb 26th Wines of Italy

Dear BEWBC members,

The Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Club would like to invite you to attend a club wine event – Red Wines of Italy.

To RSVP please click on this link  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/G5XL6VQ

*AND wine expert/wine buyer/sommelier/wine educator Arnie Millan plans to join us (if available)

WHEN: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26TH, 6:30PM (ARRIVE @6PM, browse the shop, taste a warm-up wine, program starts promptly at 6:30pm)

WHERE: WINE WORLD & SPIRITS, Wallingford (400 NE 45th St, Seattle, WA, 206-402-6086, just off I-5)  http://shop.wineworldspirits.com/

We all know of the GREAT wines of Tuscany and Piedmont – and we WILL taste them and discuss them at the tasting.  BUT what about the premier wines of some of the other regions of Italy?  Like Umbria and Campania?  One of the wines from one of these regions is known as the "Barolo of the South" and its grape one of the 3 "noble grapes of Italy" (along with Sangiovese and Nebbiolo) and possibly the OLDEST grape sold commercially in the world (AND now it's known as one of the up and coming wines of Italy) – do you know it?  Well, let's try it and some others and discuss them relative to the tried and true wines of Tuscany and Piedmont.

Italian wines are made for food ... well at least for Italian food.  We'll have some nibbles, but if anyone wants to bring any appetizery kind of food to share, that would be most welcomed.

Note that there will be a $10 per person charge for this event (for guests as well).  So PLEASE RSVP BY FRIDAY FEBRUARY 20TH to the survey link ( https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/G5XL6VQ)


Again we really need an RSVP by Feb 20th – so that we can reserve the right sized room AND so that we can make sure there is enough wine J

Wine Faults and Flaws Workshop - March 7, 2015

Have you ever wondered what causes cork taint, what it smells like, and how this wine fault differs from a wine that is oxidized? Would you like to be able to identify the difference between a wine with lactic taint and one spoiled by brettanomyces yeast? Have you ever wondered if it is possible to correct a wine with a nail polish remover aroma (ethyl acetate)? Join us Saturday March 7th as Steve Foisie takes you through a close examination of the more common aromatic defects found in red and white wines.

This BEWBC-sponsored work shop on wine flaws and faults offers and an opportunity to experience (smell) common aromatic wine defects in red and white wine. You learn how these defects originate, their impact on wine, and just as importantly, understand what if anything can be done to reverse the fault.

Please note that due to time constraints and the public nature of the facilities, this is not a wine tasting event. We will not be able to assess or offer chemical analysis of individual wines at this workshop.

Date:         Saturday, March 7th
