COVID Update: **GRiST is continuing our hybrid meeting model in July!**
Club business and education will take place in person at the John Lyon VFW and will be broadcast over Zoom followed by in-person tasting. With very high member vaccine rates and low COVID community rates, we will conduct as much of our meeting indoors with mitigation efforts in place. Outdoor on-site options are also available for those who would like to attend, but have reservations about parts of the meeting format.
Our meetings are open to the public and we welcome all who would like to check out what we're up to each month. In-person participation requires following CDC guidelines regarding vaccinated individuals. In short, if you are vaccinated, masks are optional indoors, unvaccinated people will need to wear a mask indoors during club activities.
If you're not there yet, keep us in mind down the road and find us through Zoom. Guests can expect to learn about club plans, internal and external competitions, social opportunities, and are welcome to take part in our monthly education seminar: July- Q&A with John Weikert from Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine/BYO. Style 7A, Vienna lager will also be discussed.
