Membership Dues - If you haven't done so yet, please renew your MEGA membership. You can renew your membership on the website using the Paypal link at the bottom of the About Us page, by contacting the Treasurer Jim Moler for payment, or paying at the February meeting.  Dues are $25 for an individual and $35 for a family.

MEGA Work Shirts - MEGA ordered more of the popular MEGA Work Shirt! These shirts are great to wear at events or just to represent MEGA during your brew day.  The work shirts are Dickies-branded short sleeve blended material  (65% polyester/35% cotton, Moisture-Wicking).  Color is charcoal with gold and white MEGA logo on left chest and large on Back.  Check with the club for available sizes.

MEGA Sample Glasses - MEGA is preparing to place an order for sample glasses.  Those who already pre-ordered will get their glasses and any remaining glasses will be available for members and sold at events.  The order is still getting finalized and final pricing will be communicated once the order is placed.   If you are still interested in getting glasses, place your order for sample glasses HERE.

MEGA Barrel Project - Some MEGA members got together and filled 2 bourbon barrels with beer, one with a Kate the Great Russian Imperial Stout clone and another with a club-collaborate English-style Barleywine.  This month, we have samples from these barrels to see if the beer is ready to be transferred out.  We are also discussing possibly doing a second filling of one or both barrels.  If you would like to participate, post in the forum on the website or bring it up in one of the upcoming meetings.
