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.
