Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Club
September Joint Alers Beer Meeting

This is the last summer meeting as the Fall Equinox inexorably approaches (9/22).  So come celebrate the end of summer and embrace the fall. And well, if there is one plant that loves long days, and is sad to see them go, it is hops!  Yes, those lovely plants know to yield their bounty to us as the days shorten.  So our great and mighty Overpresidemporlord has declared a meeting to focus on these beautiful gems.  Whether it is growing, drying, pelletizifying, storing under C02 or liquid nitrogen or any other hot hop topic, rest assured, it will be covered in scintillating detail.

This also from the divine Overpresidemporlord: Umm, yeah, Beer-on-the-fly Guy/Gal, like don't forget to bring your beer, or else! Or else what!??!  There will be less beer.
Featured brewery is Wingman Brewers out of Tacoma. I enjoyed a few of their beers this summer.  I am totally in love with their can art, being a bit of a WWII aviation buff.  I am hoping for awesome swag, but will be pleased with just beer and getting to hear what they have to say.
The heart of the Overpresidemporlord cares not just for us, but for all folks.  So we will be doing a "fill the keg" event to collect non-perishable food/toiletries/... to donate to local charities to help those who may have to choose between beer and eating or brushing.
The Style Sherpette will edumacate us and supply samples,  I do hope it is some ridiculously hoppy styles...

As always, bring your amazing fermented creations, snacks, food and smiling sparkling selves and let's have a great meeting.


When: Friday, September 19th, 19:00 - 21:00

Location: Larry's Brewing Supply

2014 cork orders by September 15th

It's time for our yearly club cork order. A wee bit late this year, but I’ll try to get folks corks by mid-September. So, if you want these corks, I'll need you to respond by email with your order by September 15th to That will give me time to confirm orders, request the checks, etc...All the information you need to order should be below.  If not, feel free to send me an email.

I have found these to be very good quality corks at very reasonable prices and most importantly, they are treated and bagged in SO2 to reduce chances of contamination to your wine. The corks come adorned with our lovely club logo, but you can get them without the logo as well.

In past years if we make a total order of at least 1000 corks of any type, ACI will bag them in lots of 50 or more. However, since this is extra work for ACI, there has been a $5 per bag charge. Prices are TBD, but I would assume for the time being that they will be close to the estimates below. I will confirm prices and bagging options with everyone that makes an order.

ACI uses a proprietary boiling process to extract volatile elements from their corks, and follow that treatment with a multiple stage process which includes a peroxide wash to prevent microbiological growth, further disinfect the cork, and to eliminate aromatic components. Once these processes have been completed, the corks are labeled, hydrated, run through a surface treatment to protect and lubricate them and then packaged in sealed bags filled with sulfite gas.

You'll see in the table below the products offered from ACI. These corks come in two different "washes". One is slightly darker than the other, but they're otherwise the same cork (the darker ones just spent slightly less time in the peroxide wash cycle). There is no benefit to the lighter wash except they are lighter so you can see the logo better.

AC-1s are the highest quality corks, followed by AC-2s and AC-3s. For those that are interested, there are "Naturtop" corks as well. These corks have an agglomerated core, with natural cork layers on either end. On the low end of the spectrum, there are Aglica corks, which are basically fine grained agglomerated corks. ACI also offers corks in multiple sizes , so if you want a special order, just let me know.

Prices are estimates and you should plan on an additional 3% for shipping.

45 X 24mm AC-1 - $461 /1000

45 X 24mm AC-2 - $ 328 /1000

45 X 24mm AC-3 - $248 /1000

45 X 23.5mm Naturtop - $114 /1000

45 X 23.5mm Aglica - $77 /1000

To Order Corks:

Send me an email, by September 15th, describing the quantity (multiples of 50) of corks you want in each style. After all the orders have been collected and any adjustments made, I will send you a confirmation email and request a check. No orders will be made until all moneys are received.


150 45X24mm AC-1; light wash - one bag of 100 and one bag of 50

200 45X23.5 Aglica; light wash - one bag of 200

I look forward to hearing from you,
