HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY-MARCH 17
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day the Pacific Gravity Homebrew Club will be celebrating the event by holding its monthly club meeting on the 3rd Thursday of the month.
“Oh”, you say. “Isn’t the meeting always on the third Thursday of the month?” Well, yes it is, boys and girls. But since it’s March, and Stouts along with BJCP Category 5-Bocks are our styles of the month, we’ll be celebrating Patrick’s life and good works at the meeting.
Those of the Roman persuasion can also celebrate the day of another great man’s death, Julius Caesar “Beware the Ides of March ”. No orgies, please, and leave your daggers at home. Church keys are permitted, however.
As usual, this humble leprechaun will be cooking our annual corned beef and cabbage meal, to be served on site, beginning at 6:30pm. There is no charge for the meal, but donations to defray the cost are more than welcome. The official meeting will begin at 7:30.
We will need beverages for the meeting, so anyone who has a stout waiting to be drunk by an appreciative PG membership is urged to bring it. The more we have, the better the meeting. As we do every month, the beer judged the best, or at least, most popular, will bring the winner a $25 CCHBS gift certificate. Commercial tasting will follow announcements. Commercial tasting will follow the announcements.
If anyone has brewed a Bock, please bring it for onsite judging. The winner of the judging will have the beer entered in the AHA Club Only Competition. PG will pay for the entry and shipping.
We will also be accepting payment of annual club dues ($30), and collecting money for the March 26 O.C. Road Trip to TAPS, and The Bruery on March 26. Seats are going fast, so sign up and pay up soon.
See you all on the 17th.
ERIN GO BRAGH!
