The BURP Club closed out the 2014 calendar year with its annual potluck holiday banquet in Vienna, VA. A fine crowd enjoyed fabulous dishes prepared with beer and some delicious homebrews.

BURP members Don Kaliher and Anne Stevens enjoy the camaraderie of the crowd along with the excellent homebrewed Winter Warmers.

Here, Minister of Culture Wendy Aaronson announces the winners of the annual Winter Warmer homebrew competition.

  The team of Pat & Janet Crowe and Tom & Colleen Cannon show off the ribbon they received for their very tasty entry, an English-style Winter Warmer.

Election of BURP officers for 2015 was a big part of club business at the event. Here, newly elected Fearless Leader Emily Michelsen addresses the crowd.
