This mail just went out to the club from Tom

Hi,

Tickets to the Craft Beer Attraction are now open for sale to the public
at www.craftbeerattraction.ca

Now is the time to let your friends know about the forthcoming Grand
Tastings, a special tasting of 21 beer with Certified Cicerone Mike
Buhler, and a tasting of the very rare Utopias from Samuel Adams.

The event will be held at the St. John's Curling Club on Mayor Avenue
where we will hold the Grand Tasting of 106 beers, most selected
specially by Mike Buhler, in the rink area to provide plenty of space
for all participants.

In the lounge area, selected beer will be available by the open bottle
to accommodate larger groups. There will be a slight discount in the
price of these beer.

The 50 ml tastes in the rink area cost mainly $1.00 while some of the
more expensive beer cost up to $3.00 for that size sample. Join up with
a buddy and share a sample by purchasing a separate beer glass for $5.00
to collect the beer and then pour half into each of your tasting glasses.

The first beer of the evening is included in your ticket along with the
tasting beer glass. We are serving 100 ml of Trou du Diable Saison du
Tracteur. There are also two tokens included on your event program to be
used as you wish.

We look forward to welcoming you and your friends to the craft beer
event of 2017.

Tom, Mike, and Matt
