Silly judging and the November meeting is upon us!
Bring your Experimental Beer (TEN, 12 oz. bottles) if you will be at the meeting by 2:00. We will be sending the beers home with El Presidente (to keep safe) who can only attend the meeting for a short time on Saturday. Print out your description that is the same as your original that was turned in last month. We will distribute them the following weekend, location TBD. This is being done so those who can not make it to the meeting can drop off their beer anytime between now and next Thursday (11/13) to El Presidente’s house. The address will be provided if you need it. Continue reading
Get your Helles on this Sunday Oct 12th at the Barn. The honey is nice, the milk is
better, but the Housh Helles is best! 1105 MORE RANCH ROAD. Off S. Patterson.
(Patterson off ramp towards the ocean and right turn on More Ranch Rd)
The meeting will be held behind the barn and the start time is 1:00. Rumor is
there will be a keg of Spaten on tap! Bring beer and food to share.
Meeting will be Saturday Aug 9th at Jimbo and Nance’s at 126 Cooper rd. (One street over from Mesa lane). We’re the 5th house from the end on the left. Come through the front gate and through the front door or up the driveway and turn right and go through the red door under the driftwood arch. Don’t go through the big Asian Torrey gate at the end of the driveway, we have renters back there in our vacation rentals. 1 PM for Saison judging, 3 PM regular mtg, possible raffle and bring some food and beer to share.
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
