Happy 2014!

Welcome to 2014 everyone!  I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself to everyone in case we have not met at any of the meetings.

As you all hopefully know by now my name is Brian Holter and I am the incoming President of the club.  I have been a member of the club since 2006 and I have been a regular meeting attendee for the past 3 or 4 years.  We have a big year ahead of us in 2014 and it is going to be an exciting time to be a member of our club.

The first thing I want to mention is that the Homebrew Shop in Culver City is now officially back open!  The new address is:

4234 Sepulveda Blvd, Culver City, CA

There is a parking lot in front of the store.  Every spot is labeled as “pizza” parking only, but Greg assures me that we can park in those spots.  If you wont take my word for it (Greg did tell me after I’d had a few beers at last week’s First Friday), you can park on the “frontage” Culver Blvd road which has tons of parking space and no meters (=awesome).  I was at the store on Sunday and it looks great and should make for an awesome new store for Culver City.

As I mentioned in an earlier post our first club meeting of 2014 is going to be held at Smog City in Torrance next Thursday the 16th of January @ 7:30pm.  At that meeting I will make sure to introduce myself and the rest of the board members for the upcoming year and go over some of the plans for the club along with the usual competition and Pacific Brewers Cup 2014 updates from Carl.

The board and I are working hard at finding a more permanent location for our monthly club meetings – I hope to have news on that in the next couple of months.

If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns about the club please feel free to send me a message here on the website and I will get back to you as soon as I notice it, or just come talk to me at future events.

I look forward to seeing all of you next week.

Cheers to the new year and a lot of fun together in the 2014!

Brian Holter
