I wanted to let you know about a special event we have on Thursday, April 17th in Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co’s Santa Barbara Taproom starting at 6pm. Ignacio “Nacho” Cervantes, Head Brewer of Pizza Port’s Ocean Beach brewery, will be brewing a collaboration beer with our Brewmaster, AJ, this week and on Thursday evening he’ll be pouring samples from Pizza Port. This Q&A with Nacho will be a fun event for local home brewers. I’m hoping you can spread the word with your club members or let me know how I can promote this event to them.
Our Santa Barbara Taproom is located at 137 Anacapa St, Suite F in the Funk Zone.

-Too High a Gravity for a Dark Strong Belgian Bob
“Some quality there is in the whole Gulf that trips a trigger of recognition so that in fantastic and exotic scenery one finds oneself nodding and saying inwardly, ‘Yes, I know.’ Trying to remember the Gulf is like trying to re-create a dream. This is by no means a sentimental thing, it has little to do with beauty or even conscious liking. But the Gulf does draw one, and we have talked to rich men who own boats, who can go where they will. Regularly they find themselves sucked into the Gulf. And since we have returned, there is always in the backs of our minds the positive drive to go back again. If it were lush and rich, one could understand the pull, but it is fierce and hostile and sullen. The stone mountains pile up to the sky and there is little fresh water. But we know we must go back if we live, and we don’t know why.”
—John Steinbeck, Log from the Sea of Cortez
